But for decades, the Geary brothers have kept the town going and if there’s something that needs doing, they know how to do it. 

They’re literally the jacks of all trades, helping out with everything from cow and hay sheds, to boats and cars.

"We’ve been bugging around here in Wyndham for about 50 years, trying to make things right in the building industry," they told Seven Sharp.

"We’re sort of alright. Not bad until the IRD gets ahold of us and they sort of bugger things up a wee bit every month. Ouch, that hurts, and we start again.

"When we started that’s what building was all about, just doing everything from digging the foundations to putting the roof on."
