Adrian's History...

Image description

 Kings cross & the west end of London was where it all began in Adrian's 30 long years in the construction industry. At the spritely young age of 13 years old, He was working as a labourer for his father's hotel construction & refurbishment company.


 By the age of 16 he started his carpentry & joinery apprenticeship with his father's team of carpenters resulting in him being the head carpenter for many years then later on self-employed sub-contracting and running large construction contracts for the likes of Halifax, Nationwide, Coca cola, the MOD, Kone lifts & , Pfizer pharmaceutical to name but a few.


 At the age of 30 he then moved to Portugal to work with his Uncle refurbishing villas & restaurants and constructing terraces & swimming pools.


During this time his parents had made the move to the charente buying a gite complex to renovate. Adrian decided to pay them a visit to help out with the renovation arriving with just his van and tools. He loved the peace and quiet so much he decided to stay & he soon managed to find plenty of work, so got himself registered in 2006.


 Adrian's work load has been constant for many years, and he has had to work 7 days a week to keep up with it. There have been many challenges thrown at him over the past 10 years, the building work has been the easiest part, as he has been doing this all his life.


 Shortly after  us getting together, His biggest blow was in April 2008 when his father/best mate was struck down with a stroke leaving him unable to work. Then a new challenge arrived, our first baby Alfie with Chloé following a year later, then finally Lilly. With 3 children under 3 years old, a house of his own to renovate, a poorly father & a business to run in a foreign country plus all the building work to do on top of all that, most people would not be able to handle it, but not Adrian, he still kept the business going strong with it growing each year, watching other English family's tring to make a life for themselves in France, then returning to the UK, as they struggle to make it work.


Adrian is the most hard working person I have ever met and I am proud to be his other half.

 "I had a wreck of a building and a clear idea of what I wanted. Without the skills, hard work, integrity and sheer determination of Adrian to achieve perfection, I would still be where I started. Instead I now have a beautiful home."
