Zac Prestidge

From a young age I would watch Dad as a builder, learning how to create beautiful things. After a stint of studying design at university and engaging in mentoring young people I decided to jump into building where I now get to engage in so much of what I love - creativity, being outdoors, connecting with people in a meaningful way and providing people with something of real value.

When Iā€™m not working I enjoy playing with my three kids, spending time in the river, hunting and playing boardgames with my wonderful wife and friends.

Matt Stanley

I'm a father of four small (cheeky) kids originally from the bottom of the south island. In the past I have worked predominantly in people focused roles in rest-home care-giving, community mental health services and youthwork. After living rurally for a number of years as part of Ngatiawa River Monastery I increasingly grew in my love and ability of practical work and eventually took up the chance to become a builder. I enjoy the opportunity to be creative, productive and achieve visible results.


Brendan Saayman

Originally from South Africa, I met my wife while travelling Europe and the UK and decided to settle and raise our family in NZ where we've lived for the past 15 years. I'm a keen sportsman and have played football for Featherston United for the past 8 years as well as coaching the Featherston Junior Football teams.  My love of building things started from a young age, and has allowed me to travel the world working on interesting projects from Boat Building,to Landscaping and both residential and commercial building.This has given me good attention to detail and design and a love for creating beautiful things.
