The Family...

I hope this site will provide you with sufficient information so that you feel confident to contact me regarding your future project.

I am happy to discuss your requirements and to give you an

estimation/quote at no charge.

                               I have been living and working here in the Charente Maritime since 2005,

                            with my family and my dog! I have worked on a variety of building projects                                                

                                    ranging from large  complete renovations to small " odd jobs".

                            My speciality is the finishing ie plastering/tiling/painting etc and I particulary  

                             enjoy being creative. I am a bit of a perfectionist or as some builders have kindly

                                                                     called me  " a fussy git ".                      

                                 You can find some of the work I have done on my

                       and read client feedback


Before " Living the French Dream "........

After leaving school I worked full time in my uncles building company, but at the age of 25 decided to pursue a different career. This enabled me to still continue " the finishing " part of building work, but only part time, and help my dad who is a professional painter and decorator.

I also spent a " few " years renovating our Somerset cottage before we arrived

here in France.


                I have British, French and Other Nationality Clients and take pride in

        offering a personal and honest service. I generally work on my own

but if required, due to the project size, I will bring in other tradesmen that I trust.

                I work alongside Fully Registered electricians, plumbers, carpenters,  etc

and will be happy to recommend someone to you if needed.
