We are master builders of houses, garages, granny flats and any other structures, including rustic stone garden walls (not prefabricated), fireplaces, built-in braais, entertainment areas, patios, paving, large ponds, water features and many more. All our building work is done in accordance with safe building standards.

Building & Construction Work

What we do

We are professional NHBRC registered builders of houses, granny flats, additions, renovations, entertainment areas and garden walls, as well as custom thatch roofs, lapas and structures to the highest standard of craftsmanship.

In addition to normal tile roofs, we also erect and build traditional thatch roofs and structures, using only the highest quality Cape Thatch Reeds (for interior thatching) and Highveld Grass Thatch (for exterior thatching). We also do maintenance and re-thatching of existing thatch roofs and lapa’s.

Thatching & Roofs

Proper lightning protection is an absolute necessity for any thatch structure (and a requirement from most insurance companies). We erect and install SABS and Insurance approved lightning rods and conductors to protect thatch structures from the disastrous effects that a lightning strike can have. Your compliance certificate will be issued on the day of installation. Click here for a lighting protection quotation.

“I would like to compliment Isak and his team on the lapa and boma they built for us. Throughout the building project, they have been extremely professional, and bent over backwards to accommodate us. Their work is of outstanding quality and beauty, and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to build a lapa, or have a thatched roof. Thanks Isak and team!!”
