The journey so far. Back in the ’80s I trained as a carpenter, building bespoke kitchens and furniture, working with a couple of companies in the county of Kent. One built custom handmade kitchens, and the other built furniture from reclaimed pine and oak. I then came out to Lanzarote in the mid-’80s, set up a carpentry business and opened a furniture shop in Arrecife, just off the main high street Leon Y Castillo. They were great times and we built some amazing pieces for our clients.
Over the years I have restored old farmhouses, designed and built myself a few properties, and eventually started building for clients which has now become a passion.
I love renovating old properties with a keen eye for detail and design. There is something extremely rewarding in dragging an old property out of the ’90s and turning it into a modern designed fresh living space.
