At the age of 18, Pat started working as a glazier. He first worked for G-James Glass before operating as a subcontractor for Progress Property. In 1969, Pat and Mary moved to Old, and he continued his work. Because Pat was so efficient and worked so hard, he was continually given more and more work to do. From shower screens to mirrors and splashbacks, Pat was working on anything the customer wanted. This passion and determination eventually led Pat and Mary to begin their own company.
