Busy Summer

We've had a busy Summer here at MTAC, and I wanted to share some pics of the things we've been working on. This Fall looks to be shaping up with some great projects as well.

As Fall approaches, perhaps you're asking yourself some questions about your home. If so, feel free to contact us by phone or email.

Enjoy the pics. Professional photography to come.

Home Expo Recap

The El Cerrito Home Expo was a hit once again thanks in part to the City of El Cerrito, the attendees, and the many exhibitors who came out.

The More Than A Carpenter booth was a complete success thanks to some of our amazing clients that came out to take the helm. Our hope was that people interested in MTAC would be able to hear what having a working relationship with us is like from the homeowner perspective. Thanks to the honesty of our clients we were able to accomplish just that. We're always happy to share references.

John Ferguson Sr., CR, CGBP had two great crowds again this year for his discussions on kitchen and bath remodeling, and working with archtects and contractors. Steve Swearengen, Architect, CGBP, LEED AP joined John Sr., as did new addition Becky Hatt of Haus Architecture + Interior Design. There were some great questions from the crowd, and some equally great answers from the panel.

See you all next year for the 3rd Annual El Cerrito Home Expo!

Pictures as promised.

Here are the kitchen remodel pictures I promised earlier today. The project is coming along beautifully. I can't wait to see it all done.

Back to blogging!!

I've been away from the blog for a bit, but I'm back and ready to blog. Here are a couple of pictures from a kitchen remodel we are doing in San Anselmo, CA.

I'll be visiting the site today to take some updated digital images (amateur of course). Professional photography will be down the road just a bit.

Look for the photos this afternoon and have a great start to your week!

Rotavision Bowlathon

On April 4th John Ferguson Jr. and Sr. both had the pleasure of participating in the 4th annual Bowlathon to support Rotavision International.

Rotavision International provides eye surgery, physician training and technical support worldwide for children and adults needing sight-saving eye surgery.

The mission of Rotavision International is to improve eye health in developing countries worldwide by teaching local physicians new techniques and providing them with the equipment to accomplish the sight-saving surgeries. The mission is carried out by physicians and Rotarians from San Francisco Rotary Club #2, working as a team with physicians and Rotarians from other Rotary Clubs in the United States and with clubs in the host cities.

A great time was had by all. It was an honor to help raise funds for this exciting, sustainable cause.
