Spaces that meet the functional demands of inspired living, that takes your budget constraints into account. And so he has founded The European Carpenter Johannesburg.


Our Story

In 2009, Mike had a vision offering a different approach to the then standard perspective on living spaces in South Africa. At that time everyone was using standardized mass produced elements that lacked quality.

Therefore, Mike chose to ensure that each living space design was not only customized and functional, but also built to perfection. In addition, unlike other service providers, Mike wanted to offer a one stop solution for living space renovations. Solution which included building alterations to kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms. Solution ranging from tiling, paving, brick work, plastering, painting, electrical to plumbing. Thus taking the hassle out of project managing multi contractors when it comes to your renovations.
