Wright Hand Man is the brainchild of Harry Nell after he worked in the Building & Carpentry Industry in Gauteng, but also in the United Kingdom.

At this stage the Building and Carpentry Industry is slow, but there is a desperate demand for good hands-on service, especially in the Western Cape countryside.

Based on his background knowledge and vision, Harry Nell decided to start Wright Hand Man, in his own area, Boland and Overberg.

The need for service in the Carpentry Industry originated from:

  • poor service in the Western Cape
  • builders make use of contractors, without the hands-on supervision of the owner
  • unqualified sub contractors
  • poor workmanship

Harry Nell aim to satisfy his client¡¯s needs by an assessment of the project, personal quotation, supervision and assistants with each project and providing peace of mind to the client.  Realizing the need for hands- on service, good quality of work and workmanship gave Harry the drive and vision to start Wright Hand Man.



Wright (rit)


a person who makes, constructs, or repairs, a builder or creator of something
from the old English wrytha - wright (builder)

The ambition of Harry Nell is visible in the success of Wright Hand Man.  Harry Nell has been working in the building industry for the last 9 years. 

He has 5 years practical experience overseas, of which most were obtained in the United Kingdom.  Harry makes use of well trained sub contractors, with the necessary knowledge in their specific field of expertise.

It is very important that quality of work is of the highest possible standard since it is on such a safety/cost effective level ¨C this is where the high standard and professionalism of Wright Hand Man fits the bill perfectly.


I have found Mr Nel¡¯s workmanship to be of outstanding quality and it is very rare in today¡¯s world to have such a hand on approach and exceptional personal service beyond any  expectations.   I can only highly recommend Mr Nel¡¯s services and you are welcome to contact me directly on 021-876 3762 or 083 390 2891 for further reference.

Harry Nell was the Site foreman whilst we were building our house in Featherbrook Estate June 2006 to November 2006.   We couldn¡¯t have ask for a better Site foreman as he always kept us in the loop with regards to the development, he was always on site and always gave 110% with everything.
