This year marks my 40 year anniversary since obtaining my general contractor’s license. My, how time flies!

Along with having relocated to the Napa Valley, I’ve scaled back our operations to the point where I’m only serving a small select group of past clients in the East Bay.

Carpentry duties are still being performed by the inimitable Giulio Columbo with an occasional curtain call from Neville Roddie on a case by case basis.

If you have larger plans in mind I’m happy to refer W.A. Rose Construction, based in Oakland, with whom I enjoyed a two year association from 2018 to 2020.
