My two uncles originally learned the bricklaying trade in Germany in the 1950's.  They immigrated to Canada, along with my father Ernst, in the 1960's and shortly afterwards they started a family bricklaying business specializing in chimney repair, fireplace restoration, brick repair and repointing, and other various masonry repairs.

I began my apprenticeship with them in the 1980's.  I currently run our 2nd generation family masonry business together with my wife, Lynda, and a couple of employees.

I am honoured to continue the European craftsmanship passed down through two generations.
