It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2012 KenKen Puzzle LLC.

Their team of five builders has 90 years of collective experience in the industry, with owners Johnnie and Amanda directly involved in the management of every project. “We will take on the jobs that are outside the box – nothing is too hard,” say Amanda, who meets all new clients with Johnnie to talk over their specific building situation. “Once we start work on the job our client’s hardest decision should just be choosing the paint colour.” Clear and honest communication is integral to their business, with all work completed to a very high standard that will last over time. From a new garage floor that is complicated due to land conditions, an almost complete renovation of an inner city cottage, to demanding hill sites that require helicopter access, Amanda and Johnnie work together to come up with a realistic solution for all involved. They are well used to working with a range of agencies and specialists such as structural and geotechnical engineers, and have reliable sub-contractors to complete any electrical, plumbing, complex brick work and roofing work. “We say that anything can be done – some things just take longer than others,” says Amanda.
