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.
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:
Then you might surprise yourself at what you can achieve!
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.
