About Alex and how I can help you

I started building houses in 2006 when I got a job with the local builder in my town. 

Prior to that, like many of us, I could barely change a light bulb or the fuse in a plug.  I definitely never thought that, one day, I would be able to build a house.  

I had a university degree in Economics, so I was hardly the guy you would come to for advice on anything practical.

However, the idea of being able to build houses grabbed my imagination far more than the idea of commuting up to London to fill in excel spreadsheets so I took the leap into the world of construction and never looked back.  

What's this got to do with you

  • Perhaps you don't know where to start and feel overwhelmed just thinking about building or extending your home.
  • Perhaps the idea of contacting a builder or walking up to the counter in the builders merchant is daunting to you.
  • Perhaps you aren't sure what building regs are or whether you need a structural engineer as well as an architect.
  • Perhaps you want to project manage your build or even do some of the work yourself but don't know if it's a good idea.
  • Perhaps you want a new kitchen or bathroom but don't know where to start.
  • Perhaps you just want to know how to get your plumber to turn up when he says he will!

Whatever it is, it's likely that I have been in your shoes at some point along the way.

And while its true that houses are getting more complicated and that I can't teach you everything that you need to know via a website. 

I can simplify the building process down to its fundamental steps. 

Once you understand these, its time to add:

  • persistence 
  • and a "can do" attitude 

Then you might surprise yourself at what you can achieve!

Some of my builds

After my apprenticeship I started working for myself. 

First building for my family and then for private customers or sub contracting to larger building companies on some incredible projects.

Often I have been involved from the first spade in the ground until the last lick of paint. 

Below is some of my work.
