REIMAGINING AN OLD FRIEND
Burton Valley is one of the best neighborhoods in Lafayette, among many beautiful neighborhoods in this East bay enclave. Most of the houses were constructed in the 50s and 60s. Our clients have lived in the "hood" for 20 years and wanted to reimagine their beloved home for the next 20 years. 
Tracy worked closely with the owners to update the existing design. We started with constructing a new master bedroom suite addition with access to the new pool and rear yard. Our plans included creating three other en suite bedrooms for family and friends to visit and stay in comfort. 
Tracy met with the clients and Emilia, the owner of European Tile and Marble in Lafayette, to select tile and slabs for the bathrooms and kitchen. 
Once again, we worked with master artisans and Jeff, owner of Blueline Cabinets in Pleasant Hill, to create custom cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms. Custom lighting details were added under the cabinets, in the Living Room beams to uplight the original ceiling, and under each vanity to be used as night lights.
Tracy selected wide plank French Oak flooring from Felix at California Carpet in San Francisco. The remodel and addition came together beautifully just in time for the New Year. 
And there it is...another successful project for the TAGC crew with many thanks to Jesus Murillo for managing a job well done! 
GETTING GOOD FOOD DURING COVID
We were under COVID-19 restrictions during the construction of this beautiful home so I picked up a lot of food to go for the guys. Several places in downtown Lafayette offered excellent cuisine and curbside pick-up. Two places stood out to the crew. El Faro makes the best Mexican tortas according to my guys and I love their tacos. When I get deli sandwiches I always go to family-owned Diablo Foods. They have been making the best sandwiches in Lafayette for over 30 years. Check them out.

We definitely have noticed a loosening up and a return to the restaurant scene in town. Social Bird is packed for lunch and dinner. Great oysters, creatively and excellently prepared dishes topped off with excellent mixologists behind the bar. Stick your head in, you might find me grabbing a bite (and a sip) at the bar!
Check us out on our Website, and on YELP and Houzz.
