The team at Character Living have a ‘can do attitude’ delivering quality workmanship without the surprises.

Colleen, Client.


Character Living is comprised of a small and professional team of full-time carpenters and an apprentice. We only ever undertake a certain amount of jobs at one time so that all projects can be managed efficiently. This ensures we avoid delays in build times and our high standards are always met.

Being a small cohesive unit, our systems and processes mean that we all play an important role in ensuring quality work and that deadlines are met.

We engage sub-contractors for the all works our team are not qualified to undertake. Each of these sub-contractors has worked with Character Living for more than 5 years and are all aware of the high standards we set to achieve.

All sub-contractors have been selected to work with us because of their workmanship, and in most cases our clients have engaged them for other various works outside the scope of the build. All projects are overseen by Managing Director, Aaron Butson. Aaron has been involved in the building and construction industry for over 22 years, and as a qualified carpenter, you will see him onsite working with the team, as well as ensuring all of your requirements are being met.
