Paul always designed and crafted, from the age of nine, when he made soapbox carts for the children in the neighborhood. As Westerns were frequent on TV, he decided to build a mini Western settlement - just a few houses in which he and the neighborhood children could play cowboys and Indians.
He thoroughly enjoyed woodwork and had a tremendous talent for technical drawings. And developed an interest in architecture, which is still strong today.
Not long after he emigrated to England in 1998, he grabbed the opportunity to replace balcony railings for property owners. He was remunerated for it, not just in pay, but the satisfaction that the owners had for his excellent craftsmanship.
Word spread, and more work came in, and Caldecotte Design Studio was founded. Today, the portfolio is still growing.
