Martyn was born and bred in Cwmfelinach, South Wales. Faced with coal mining or construction as the only jobs available, he apprenticed himself to learn the art of Dry Stone Walling. Completing his City & Guilds in the early 80’sm he qualified in specialist brickwork, all aspects of stone masonry including cleaning and restoration, dry stone walling, and restoration of historical buildings. Examples of his restoration work and stone walling can be found to this day throughout the county of Caephilly.
He met the love of his life Rose in 1990 whilst on holiday in Malta, and got married soon after. The family set up their first home in Cwmfelinach, but after two years Martyn realised that the quality of life and work opportunities in Malta were much better than South Wales, so in 1992 he moved his new family back and set up his fledgling construction business.
That was 30-years ago…………………………………..
