My Story : How it all started
I am the second of four boys raised on a large 300 acre farm in Buckland 5 mins south of Pukekohe where the grass is green and the skies are blue.
My first memories of my Dad was as a dairy farmer then our farm was converted into beef and sheep, later years Dad worked as a civil contractor for Spiral Drillers.
Mum was kept busy trying to keep us boys in order, I think she did a pretty good job keeping us out of mischef.
My older brother Shannon owns his own successful landscaping business Paradise Landscapes, Royce's chosen field is Land Surveying and Architectural Drafting. My youngest brother, Daniel, is a site manager for H.E.B Construction.
Sadly my parents passed away in a car crash when I was 20. My two younger brothers were lucky to escape. After picking up the pieces, one thing it has taught me is a true appreciation for the things we have in life.
I also like to see others enjoying the benefits life has to offer, that is why I find it so rewarding working for other people, creating their dream homes and putting it into reality.

In 2003 I was lucky enough to meet my lovely wife Anna-Lise. After several overseas trips to Australia, England, Germany, Ireland and Thailand we decided to start a family, which has now grown into 2 lively young boys, Damian 8 and Oakley 5, and two beautiful young daughters; Makayla 3 and Sophia 1.

My parents love for the outdoors taking us boys on regular expeditions fishing, water skiing and tramping has obviously influenced me with my chosen career choice. Combine that with the competitive spirit of growing up with three brothers, my love with socialising with different people and the satisfaction of handing over the keys to happy clients after another successful home extension, and you get the ultimate builder of dream homes.
I look forward to talking with you shortly.
