Both Mat and Caroline were born and raised in rural Waikato, New Zealand. Mat began his carpentry apprenticeship in Hamilton and once qualified started his own business in the Te Awamutu / Cambridge area. He took on many types of building projects from new home builds and renovations to school upgrades and light commercial work.
After Caroline was offered a job in Auckland, they decided to make the most of the opportunity and made the move to central Auckland city. Within a short time, Mat had re-established his business and formed a strong team of qualified builders. He enhanced his skill base by taking on projects like historical villa and bungalow restorations and the re-build of leaky homes, all while juggling confined work spaces, restricted site access and traffic!
While enjoying their life in the city, both Mat and Caroline couldn’t shake their affiliation to rural New Zealand and spent most of their free time back in the Waikato and Taupo region. Once children came along, they decided to move to Taupo and back to family and friends and enjoying the great outdoors!
