Kurt started his carpentry apprenticeship straight out of high school with his lifelong dream of becoming a Builder coming true soon after.

In his career there is not much that he hasn’t done – from kitchen and bathroom renovations to large-scale extensions, commercial fitouts, apartment renovations, decks and finally finding a passion for designing and building high end playscapes.

Kurt has always been a perfectionist and holds his work to the very highest standard.

With his wife Jesse taking care of the administrative responsibilities, Kurt created this business because he simply loves to design & create one of a kind playscapes turning simple yards into exciting worlds of entertainment and fun that will impress children, parents and educators for years to come.
