We’ll be in by Christmas…

In 2002 I put an offer in on a small Victorian house in the centre of Huddersfield that I planned to renovate.

I went into a frenzy ripping out bathroom suites, pulling down plasterboard, black lime plaster, and dated interior decor. There were old kitchen tiles, decrepit paving slabs, cheap ceramic tiles and I cleared everything out. It was great fun and took just a few days. But little did I know that putting it all back wasn’t easy and certainly wasn’t cheap.

I spent literally weeks of my life just driving to and walking round the large sheds and builders merchants. It took a small fortune to resurrect that property and most of that was on hugely marked up building materials from the usual suspects. There had to be a better way…


In 2019, I teamed up with a large group of contractors to create a one-stop-shop online. Knowing what I knew about the plight of DIYers, I built a website called Handymanhunter.uk and signed up the leading UK building supplies brands. Since then we have tried to provide honest service, quality products, at good value and quickly.
