At the age of one, Peter picked up his tools for the first time and has never looked back. A fair few years on and Peter Wolfkamp LBP, NZTC, continues to share his impressive skills, knowledge and life-long passion for carpentry and building.
His portfolio of work and influence includes historic Devonport villas, ultra-modern townhouses, rustic country estates, restoration of an historic 1890 church and a sabbatical which involved Peter working on a 16th century farmhouse in the south of France.
Peter's professional development has continued with the completion of the NZGBC Homestar Home Coach and Practioner training, and is a Licensed Building Practioner qualified by the DBH.
Known nationally our Resident Builder, Peter hosts his own building and DIY Radio show, “Sunday Mornings with the Resident Builder” 6-8am, The programme includes taking questions from callers and offering advice on DIY projects plus ‘Ask the Expert’ segments.
Peter’s TV career is building apace, with the imminent launch of his very own TV programme, Creative Living. It will be launched on TV3 in Quarter 4 2016. This series will give more information and knowledge about how to create and develop a more sustainable home along with the practical DIY advice Peter is known so well for.
As the site foreman for The Block NZ since 2012, ‘The Wolf’ as he’s referred to on The Block, brings a unique combination of construction and technical knowledge, along with hand-on chippy experience. Peter has also developed editorial and narrative skills that have proved useful to the production team.
Peter’s on-screen TV presentations have also included Top Shelf Productions where he evaluated and commented on the performance of tradesmen, and in early 2011 he worked with the new Breakfast team on TV1.
Peter has a wealth of knowledge to draw on, extensive experience on site, a passion for architecture and a sound technical knowledge of building and DIY, and combines that with presentation and editorial skills honed over many years. He strikes a chord with all levels of audiences, crossing age, gender, demographics, and more importantly, all levels of the industry, from humble home-based DIY-lovers to top end professionals. His extensive skills and knowledge are tempered and made accessible by his friendly, open approach and ‘the bloke next door’ no nonsense personality. Everyone loves ‘The Wolf’!
