I started in the building trade 20 years ago actually doing carpentry! I built roofs, hung doors, fixed kitchens, etc. I can build anything from timber. I progressed into other trades such as plumbing, plastering, tiling, electrics etc and found I was enjoying the bathroom side of things.
The beauty of having one man on a job - he stays focused on the design which does not get lost when you have a multitude of men coming through the door plus the job never gets held up waiting for a trade to arrive.
I have never advertised my business, all my work comes through word of mouth, just ordinary people passing me on because I have done a great job, listened to what they wanted, showed respect to their homes and not been extortionate!
I have come to know all my customers as friends, they would give me a reference any time. I am a good tradesman with a warm heart, helping people to improve their homes. I love my job and its a bonus to be paid for my passion. I do every job very well and will travel to my customers wherever they are. The greatest feeling you can have is seeing someone smile when I show them my work.
