Clive and Janine are a young couple, recently married and have lived in Ballito for most of their lives.
[Jan 2017 Update: Clive and Janine have moved Australia a year or so ago. While we still love that they lived in Ballito please note they are no longer residents here]
Clive is a surfer boy with a big heart. Janine is a homely woman & an animal lover through and through. They love this town and most especially their community and family at Linc church in Salt Rock.
What do you do for a living?
We own our own business based in Ballito and we offer a range of maintenance & carpentry services.
Clive has been working with his hands, designing & manufacturing kitchens, BICs and bars since he left school and has an eye for detail. He believes in quality workmanship and appreciates that no two pieces of timber are ever the same, each one unique with its own story to tell. His love affair with wood and its natural beauty inspired him to step out on his own last year (with his wife and business partner by his side) and start his own company, expanding his service offering into manufacturing timber decks, pergolas, staircases and screens.
Our business was formed because we discovered a need & a demand in the area for a company with a professional yet personalised approach to its customers. As a husband & wife team we have adopted a hands-on attitude, constantly working closely with our staff to ensure superior quality & service at all times. We believe in value for money and a professional service executed with care.
How long have you stayed/worked in Ballito?
Clive since he was 16 years old and Janine since 18 years old.
