His broken leg gave him time to think. Looking into the telecoms industry, he found it strange that with so many of the tools we use (email, computer…

As a result of much time spent renovating the grandfather’s property, the pair developed serious skills and their finishings were always finished to perfection. By contrast, whenever they had to call upon a construction company to do some of the heavy renovating they were often bitterly disappointed by the slow rate of progress and slapdash workmanship.

As pretty much anybody who has ever experienced it can tell you, home renovation can be a nightmare. Apart from…
