Let's get building for you!

My grandfather, Gordon Reed, was a Master Plasterer and then became a carpenter, building many rural homes throughout Canterbury after World War One.

My grandfather Gordon Reed, prospered in the building trades after surviving Gallipoli and Verdun in World War 1. Gordon was a Master Plasterer, like his father and other family members.

In those days plasterers did both external and internal plastering including attaching the wooden strips or ‘lathes’ that were plastered over with a mix that included horse hair for strength.

Sculptures were also part of the trade, with Great Grandfather Joe Reed exhibiting animal sculptures in the 1906 Christchurch International Exhibition. Gordon also mastered the carpentry trade, building modern family homes.

Gordon then turned his hand to nursery work. Did you know that most of the old rural and farm Macrocarpa shelter belts throughout the South Island & Chatham Islands  were supplied by Gordon for many decades!
