Attention to detail, pride in a job well done and the pleasure of refining the finishing touches are the key to Patrick Lapierre’s approach, and he quickly carved out a reputation as a tireless and meticulous worker. Just like the painter, the tiler plays an important role in the final phase of any building.
It took him just a few years to acquire skill and know how, learning from others, never stinting on hours or shunning a dificult job. By the time he was 23, confident of his experience and determined to succeed, he was the owner of a moderately thriving business. However, sometimes destiny intervenes to turn the world upside down. During a short break to relax in the Caribbean he literally fell in love with the island of Saint Martin. On the flight home he could think of only one thing: coming back!

He took with him on this great adventure his young wife Andrée-Lise, who would always be there with support and encouragement through thick and thin.
