Arcata Development started in 1975 building apartment complexes in Arcata, California. While owning, operating, and managing apartments we also understand that maintenance is a major role in operating rental units. We understand that everyday a unit is off the rental market - is a day that unit is losing money. Our philosophy for this type of construction and maintenance is that time is of the essence and budget is critical.
We have serviced many different tenant properties by completing minor decorating maintenance to performing major remodels that involve gutting and rebuilding. Whatever the need is, we work with you to ensure a timely successful improvement.
Michael's own love for craftsmanship, artistry with wood, and the beauty of design lead him into historic restoration work many years ago. Respect for the building, the history, and the craftsmanship is where he starts. His finished work will be indistinguishable from the original.
Arcata Development has worked on many historic buildings over the years - from simple repair work, to fire damage, to additions, to remodels, regardless of commercial or residential property. Michael has learned how to incorporate new modern designs and codes into historic structures without compromising the original beauty.
Remodels have always been a large part of our business: Residential remodels, commercial remodels, additions, renovations, siding, windows and doors, bathrooms and kitchens. We love creating a new updated space that suits your individual needs. We will turn the dysfunctional into the functional.
Our philosophy is that if someone walks into your house and says, "Oh what a nice remodel." The builder failed at doing a good job. However, if that same person walks in and says, "Oh what a beautiful home!" The builder has done a successful job because, we feels, a remodel should never be obvious. A remodel should enhance and elevate the building. A remodel is an achieving of a dream and an investment that should only add to your quality of life and real estate.
Furthermore, we at Arcata Development realize that during a remodel we are in your house everyday and we never forget that. We work hard to communicate and partner with you during this process, to not only complete the project as quickly as possible, but to complete it in a way that will minimize any inconveniences.
Building furniture is a hobby of Michael's. His skill that he's acquired while paying attention to details follows through into his construction work. Attention to design, ascetics and artistry have been perfected with practice. Michael enjoys sharing and consulting on any aspect of design. Occasionally, he builds a custom piece of furniture for clients when the need arises.
