Having left secondary education at 16 years old in 1980, I completed a full City & Guilds apprenticeship in Bricklaying & General Building and then worked in the Construction industry for several years. Although my working career to date has included a number of other industries such as Retail, Technology & Financial Services, the practical side has always been strong with me (I’m a Star Wars fan) and I have over 30 years experience in those skills that I now use to help my customers in the Leicester and Central Midlands area.

My ‘Services’ page details a number of the ways in which I can help you. Whilst quite comprehensive in itself, there are many other things not listed.

If you have work that needs completing, call me on 07880 255504. I will be honest enough to say if the work is not within my skill-set or if I think there is a better solution for you. If I cannot complete the work you need to be done, it’s very likely that I can recommend someone with the necessary skills so you will not be back to square one.

Below are just a few of the home improvement projects I have completed.
