When the owners of this home, who are graphic artists,moved from San Francisco to Humboldt County, they purchased their home in the Fickle Hill area for it's great views of Humboldt Bay and the sunsets beyond, the spacious grounds around the house, and the abundant work space for the couple to continue their work from home.
The completion of the McDonald/Cook Building at Ninth and I streets in Arcata, is the culmination of a years long process that started with the July 4, 2001 fire that destroyed the old Arcata Paint Building that previously occupied the site.
When the owners of this home called the first week of October, 2007 and said they were ready to proceed with their 1800 square foot addition to their home in Arcata, all hands at Pacific Builders cast a wary eye at the calendar and the weather reports.
The addition and remodeling required that more than half the existing roof structure of the 3300 square foot home be removed to accommodate the new second story-all while the family, including the baby, continued to live in the less affected portions of the house.
Pacific Builders recognizes that the company's role in the construction process is greater than to simply build projects. To be successful, we must also work to strengthen our community and build long-lasting working relationships.
