Lee left school in 1988, and thereafter, worked for a local builder renovating cottages and undertaking small works building projects in and around south Cambridgeshire. He attended Cambridge Regional College and successfully studied for a City & Guilds / NVQ in Brickwork/Trowel Trades.
The economic downturn of the early 1990's provided Lee with the chance to explore new avenues. He secured a place to Study for a BA (Hons), in Music Industry Management, at Brunel University.
Following graduation from University Lee lived in London, where he set up his own record label and worked for EMI amongst other independent music companies. For two years he worked as a lecturer in Entertainment Industry and Copyright Law, on the Recording Arts & Mutli-media Arts Degree Courses, at the School of Audio Engineering (an accredited college of Middlesex University). He also worked as a trainer devising and delivering study programmes on the London Open College Network.
Whilst working in the music industry Lee never lost the practical skills he had gained from working in construction. He found that those skills were increasingly in demand by his friends and family.
Upon his return to Cambridge it made sense to return to building full time. Lee subcontracted his services to various local builders before starting out on his own.
Many people feel that the juxtaposition between the music industry and the construction industry cannot be related. But Lee counters that "In the music industry I was involved in helping people to realise their dreams.... As a builder I am intrinsically involved in helping people achieve their dreams. Everyone dreams of having a beautiful home to call their own. We can build that dream for you. We are now dream builders!"
Through his varied career and education, Lee believes that his experiences afford him high attention to detail, due diligence, diplomacy, excellent communication skills, knowledge, maturity and patience.
