Both Mat and Caroline were born and raised in rural Waikato, New Zealand. Mat began his carpentry apprenticeship in Hamilton and once qualified started his own business in the Te Awamutu / Cambridge area. He took on many types of building projects from new home builds and renovations to school upgrades and light commercial work.
After Caroline was offered a job in Auckland, they decided to make the most of the opportunity and made the move to central Auckland city. Within a short time, Mat had re-established his business and formed a strong team of qualified builders. He enhanced his skill base by taking on projects like historical villa and bungalow restorations and the re-build of leaky homes, all while juggling confined work spaces, restricted site access and traffic!
While enjoying their life in the city, both Mat and Caroline couldn’t shake their affiliation to rural New Zealand and spent most of their free time back in the Waikato and Taupo region. Once children came along, they decided to move to Taupo and back to family and friends and enjoying the great outdoors!
Micky has 15 years experience as a Carpenter, gaining his training while serving in the army and air force for the New Zealand Defence Force. Building on the job in less developed countries throughout the world has driven Mickys desire to bring high quality, yet environmentally sustainable passive housing here.
Micky has been a licensed Building Practitioner since 2009, perfecting his craft while project managing and leading teams in multiple projects throughout the New Zealand and the Pacific such as school rebuild projects in the Solomon Islands, Health Centres in Kiribati, building upgrades in East Timor as well as residential and commercial projects throughout NZ. His drive, quality workmanship and commitment to the job evident in every build.
DB&R have chosen to align themselves with eHaus as they truly believe they are the world leaders in redefining the way we live. eHaus encompasses Micky and Tash’s objectives to change and refine the current building scene, hence becoming the eHaus Marlborough license holders. This hardworking team are enthusiastic about bringing their vision of contemporary and environmentally conscious builds to the local landscape.
The pair believe so much in this way of building that they are currently constructing an eHaus for Micky’s parents just out of Blenheim. If you are interested in achieving a more healthy, sustainable and stylish way of life, we encourage you to come down and see it for yourself.
