About perfect hubbies

I've been self employed since leaving school at 18 in the carpet fitting business to my mum's dismay ! I knew that my knees could go with time so I always had other interests such as in the decorating business with my ex brother in law who was a 1st class decorator so that I could leave the carpet fitting business with me knees intact. I still do carpet fitting work but only as part of my business portfolio. My other main interests are tiling and plastering. Tho in the summer I love to design and build decks, do landscaping and my passion is lime and stonework on sandstone buildings and boundary walls.


various courses to upgrade and improve skills in plastering, tiling, stonemasonary and lime work My father was a property developer when I was growing up so I was chanelling walls and things for my dad while other kids were kicking balls around ! I've been involved in the trades for 30 years mainly in carpetfitting for the 1st 20 but I moved over to multi trades work to preserve my knees and enjoy my work every day. I always work on the basis that your only as good as your last job so that I maintain the quality of work produced.
