Christchurch builder makes an exciting discovery!

One of our customers, Marcus Allen, recently began renovating his ‘new’ home and wondered how old it was. He found out when they stripped it back to the sarking (and also discovered that, fittingly, it was a namesake who had built it). The sarking read ‘Alfred Allen June 4th 1903, building contractor’.

Marcus found a replacement front door at Musgroves that matches the era. We won’t be surprised if we hear that Alfred and Marcus are related – building really is in the DNA!
