NZ Builder // Josh Chapman

Guess what? I, Josh, am a vlogger. I share an inside look into what I do day to day here at YPB. My videos range from talking about the lessons I’ve learnt building, to timelapses, to build overviews!


I’ve found videos as a super useful tool to engage with my clients and the building industry. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a million.


Below I’ve placed a few must watch videos that I recommend to people interested in building. Check them out!
