/ About Us

Our Team

Timber has revolutionised home building in South Africa. And it all began at Rustic Homes. To have achieved this has demanded a commitment to building homes of the highest quality, and also to building our people.

From Day One back in the eighties we have provided a dynamic and interesting working environment with growth opportunities for all in a unique workplace at home in the natural beauty of the landscape, and in harmony with the life of the local community.

Here, surrounded by mountains and forest, you will meet craftsmen who are passionate about building homes that people love to live in, and people in both our front and back offices who will share in the joy and excitement you will experience from the day we meet to plan your Rustic Home to the day we hand you the key.

Rustic Homes is based on a history of great management, first led by Pieter Silberbauer and Johannes Mathewson, and now by Werner Slabbert. The Rustic Homes team has a great understanding of the needs and goals of all who work here. Pieter and Johannes with the rest of the team has made a great contribution to the great success of the business and now Werner will continue the legacy with the Rustic Homes team.
