About Me

Graham Harfield


The story of my life starts here. I first started working with timber in 1990 when I became an apprentice working for my father’s joinery company in England. This gave me four & a half years of intensive training doing carpentry & joinery at college & on site. I became very useful with my hands & was able to join timber together in all aspects.

After ten years working for my father’s joinery & becoming foreman & then manager, I decided that I wanted to start my own carpentry company, helping to construct houses & industrial buildings, starting from the roof & working my way to the bottom, which is what gave me the name for this company, Top 2 Bottom Carpentry Limited.

I moved away from England in March 2008, & here I am today with this successful company. Before leaving England, my certification was approved as Level 4 by the NZQA, which is good peace of mind for every customer.

Top quality workmanship and excellent company to deal with. Excellent communication and delivered as promised. Highly recommend and will look forward to using Top 2 Bottom Carpentry for other jobs.

Graham was very obliging, knowledgeable and reliable. He listens to what you want and organises everything... even when it means a bit of travel on his part. He also did my mothers bathroom and at 86, she raved about how easy he made the whole process for her
