Greg is a multiskilled tradesman with a specialism in woodburning stove installation, fireplace and chimney construction and bespoke outdoor bbq and kitchenette design and build. The work involves joinery, metalwork, plumbing and bricklaying skills and as a result Greg takes on additional bespoke work in these fields.
Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Greg started his career as a professional Goldsmith, designing and making bespoke fine jewellery in Cape Town. This background gave him his eye for detail and passion for high quality workmanship.
Greg is now settled in Horsforth, Leeds with his wife and young family. Arguably a result of the British climate, Greg re-trained and started specialising in fireplace and stove installation in 2008. His professionalism, exceptional customer service and eye for detail led to the majority of his work coming from recommendations and repeat custom.
Having spent the first 25 years of his life in South Africa, Greg grew up with the "braai" (BBQ) and outdoor living and dining as a way of life. Outdoor BBQ and kitchenette design joins together Greg's unique skillset and allows him to bring a bit of the laid back South African lifestyle to Yorkshire.
Greg has been working for himself since May 2016 and is in the process of building his own portfolio of work.
