The construction industry has identified an overwhelming need for a skilled and motivated workforce throughout the North Bay. This need has grown following the devastating fires over the past several years. For every five construction professionals retiring from the industry, just one new worker is entering the workforce to replace them. In 2019 we were excited to introduce the North Bay Construction Corps (NBCC).

They also may earn certifications in Heavy Equipment, OSHA 10, and First Aid/CPR. After the program, students typically receive multiple job offers, as they are wellprepared for entry-level positions in various construction and trade disciplines. Some graduates earn up to $100,000 per year after working several years in the industry. 13

Marin Home Resource Guide

To build or not to build… it yourself? Contributors Marshal Rothman Rothman Construction Jeff Hadley Hadley Construction



Marin Home Resource Guide


A LOT HAS CHANGED IN THE TWOPLUS YEARS SINCE THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC FIRST STARTED. SIX OUT OF 10 WORKING AMERICANS NOW CONDUCT BUSINESS AT HOME EITHER SOME OR ALL OF THE TIME. WHILE THERE AREN’T MANY SILVER LININGS TO THE PANDEMIC, ONE COULD ARGUE THAT ALL THAT TIME AT HOME HAS SPARKED A DESIRE IN HOMEOWNERS TO MAKE THEIR HOMES FIT EVERY AREA OF THEIR LIVES - WORK, PLAY AND RELAXATION. Making a nip or tuck here, a major overhaul there costs money. When you toss in the escalating costs of building supplies—lumber alone costs are nearly 3 times higher than in pre-pandemic days—and factor in rising inflation, all of the sudden, homeowners are tempted to find ways to offset the cost of today’s remodels. It’s tempting to bypass bringing on a general contractor to get the job done, and go the owner-builder route.

It’s a question homeowners often ask themselves. Here’s what the pros have to say. 21


Marin Home Resource Guide

“I believe the largest appeal to homeowners who wish to pursue larger projects as an owner-builder is to save money,” says Jeff Hadley of Hadley Construction. “Many times, it seems those who are confident in management, specifically project management, are keen to take on projects themselves. There are some clear crossovers from other industries to construction when it comes to ‘product/project/process management.’ He adds, “however, eager homeowners oftentimes aren’t aware of the ‘big picture’ of a construction project and might not have the experience to know when tradespeople are completing their individual tasks correctly and with a holistic approach.”

A Cautionary Tale. “I was called in to consult on a residential remodel in San Rafael,” says Marshal Rothman, a general contractor and owner of Rothman Construction. “The owners had planned and started a kitchen and bathroom remodel as an owner-builder, acting as their own contractor. To this couple’s credit, they had commissioned a set of plans and obtained permit approval for the construction. However, with little knowledge about the order and process of construction, they began to have problems almost immediately. Six months had passed by the time I was brought in to look at the project. The kitchen and bathroom had already been stripped to the studs by a demolition subcontractor. The couple had put together a makeshift kitchen in the living room, but they were struggling to feed and care for their two small children with this set up. On top of that it was winter, so the family was living without heat or power in some areas of the home. They had hired one contractor to install new windows and second to install a new hot water heater. Upon arrival, I immediately discovered the water heater was running with no flue through the roof and was pumping carbon monoxide into the unfinished garage which was slowly leaking into the living area of the home. This could have escalated into a very dangerous situation. The window contractor had broken out a large area of stucco and installed the windows sideways so their built-in drains were rendered ineffective. As a result, water had been pouring into the living area, encouraging rot and mold. It was a difficult situation, to say the least. We brought in a crew and, in six weeks from start to finish, we had this family’s new kitchen buttoned up and approved by the city.”

Save Time. As the old adage goes, time is money. General contractors know how to prevent costly downtime and delays, how to manage hiccups such as weather-related issues, and work closely with subcontractors to keep your project on schedule.


Save Money. While cutting corners and doing it yourself—or, hiring a non-licensed handyman—sounds like a money-saving deal, consider this. General contractors can obtain the lowest bids from subcontractors, purchase materials in bulk and can more quickly solve things that go wrong. From an investment standpoint, when you sell your home, potential buyers will be more inclined to purchase if they know your remodeling project was completed by a licensed professional.


Prioritize Safety. If a project requires electrical, plumbing, or any sort of demolition (big or small), there really is no excuse not to hire a general contractor. Safety is priceless. General contractors encourage high safety standards. So keep safety a priority and let the pros handle it!


Ensure Legalities and Avoid Liabilities. A lot goes on behindthe-scenes of a construction site. Namely, ensuring that proper permits are in place, building codes are met, and liability insurance is covering your home and the workers who are in it. General contractors have extensive knowledge on all the logistical legalities that go into a home remodel. “But I have homeowner’s insurance, right?” Yes, but the coverage your general contractor carries is invaluable compared to what your basic homeowner’s insurance covers.


Access to Good Subcontractors: One of the biggest advantages to hiring an experienced general contractor is their ongoing working relationships with subcontractors. The best subcontractors are selective about the jobs they consider. They often prefer, or even insist, on working with general contractors they know and trust.


A Job Done Right. Rest assured knowing that a quality general contractor will get your project completed as expected. This includes ensuring the project is finished as promised within the timeframe, the budget, and the vision.


Overall, Less Stress: Having the 6 reasons above checked off your list means you’ll endure less stress. Everyone knows that when there is less stress involved, you can actually sit back and enjoy the ride. Home remodeling should be rewarding, not frustrating. If you’ve got the right team handling your project, you will surely have fewer worries knowing you (and your home) are in good hands.


Owner-Builders: What You Need to Know In two words: it’s complicated. According to Hadley, any homeowner looking to act as owner-builder on a project consisting of three or more trades should consider that they will need to do the following:

Navigate the requirements and regulations of individual jurisdiction codes and planning approvals;

Confidently vet all subcontractor bids; compile a realistic estimate and timeline without any gaps;

Be able to obtain interest and attention from subcontractors as well as have the physical time to coordinate those trades onsite;

Be confident in their knowledge of construction details to ensure subcontractors are doing their work correctly;

Know and understand the risks and liabilities of acting as an owner-builder;

Understand current codes to limit rework or corrections; and

Consider if the added time, stress and risk is worth the allure of potential cost savings.

Adds Rothman, “as a general guideline, any time a project involves a structural component, such as moving a home utility such as plumbing or electrical, or adding drainage or weatherproofing, it will likely require a permit.” While he adds that permits are not impossible for owner-builders to secure, they do require time and diligence. This is not an area to skip; projects that aren’t permitted and code compliant can lead to costly rework. Another factor not clear to the average homeowner: “there can be overlaps between trades; they need to be thoughtfully coordinated to ensure everything comes together correctly,” says Hadley. For example, a even a basic bathroom remodel will require the following: cover and protection of other areas of the home for material transportation and removal, knowledge about the locations of water and electrical disconnects, whether or not blocking is needed for grab bars, plus plumbing layouts based on tile and fixture selection, and the list goes on.



Marin Home Resource Guide

If homeowners are attempting to ownerbuild any project consisting of several or more trades (kitchens, baths, remodels, etc.), we encourage them to engage The good news: with a licensed and insured there are DIY friendly general contractor to reduce projects and steps to take their personal liability and Take heart, owner-builders. There are some projects and tasks that you can tackle yourself successfully and stress" save a few bucks in the process. - Jeff Hadley, Hadley Construction

When to Best Leave it to the Pros THE PROJECT IS MULTIFACETED. “If homeowners are attempting to owner-build any project consisting of several or more trades (kitchens, baths, remodels, etc.), we encourage them to engage with a licensed and insured general contractor to reduce their personal liability and stress,” says Hadley. Another area owner-builders often miss until it’s too late: scope gaps between subcontractors. This is when an area of work that falls between two trades is missed by both subcontractors, requiring creative problem solving and usually an increase in cost. YOU DON’T HAVE ACCESS TO THE RIGHT RESOURCES. Rothman emphasizes, “many subcontractors are reluctant to work with unknown parties, which can include owner-builders. They have concerns that they will be drawn into a neverending project crippled by poor scheduling. General contractors have a built-in network of subcontractors who are familiar with our work, making it less complicated for us to bring them on board.” YOU CAN’T DEDICATE THE PROPER AMOUNT OF TIME. Depending on complexity, the amount of time spent managing a project once it is underway can take up a lot more runway than expected, points out Hadley. Any number of variables can extend a project timeline by weeks or even months: design changes, scope creep, additional required permits, unforeseen conditions, subcontractor delays, backordered goods and delivery of products that arrive defective or are incorrect. 24

Smaller or straightforward home projects, such as refacing or refinishing cabinets, painting interior walls, and reroofing are good candidates as they can be done with the help of one specialty contractor. These projects are fairly straightforward, don’t always require permits and don’t involve dealing with the complexity of multiple parties. Exterior landscaping also makes a good DIY project, as long as you do your research on the particulars of your outdoor spaces and map out a plan first (for ideas, see page 31, Creating a Sustainable, Environmentally Friendly Landscape). Do the Pre-Planning Work for a Contracted Project. There are a certain number of steps homeowners can take before bringing a general contractor on board: engaging a reputable and licensed architect to create construction plans and a design review package; working with the local governing agency to get approval on the proposed plans, and obtaining all the needed permits. Rothman says many general contractors will, if asked, be happy to advise an owner on how to do the permitting process themselves, and municipalities provide forms explaining the requirements and order of the process as well. Just make sure you are really clear on questions you need to ask and information you need to provide to get the right permits.

A well founded and reasonable next step for building your dream home or moving ahead with your dream remodel is to access and review the best resources available to you.

Marin Home Resource Guide



WHO ISN’T ATTRACTED to the allure of the latest design trends and color pallets on Pinterest, Houzz, in home magazines, or on design TV shows? Yet, when it comes to remodeling your own kitchen and bath, most homeowners are concerned that today's hot trends will seem obnoxious or out-of-date later on, and becoming a deterrent when they're ready to sell their home.


Contributor: Alisa Hofmann, Design Set Match As someone who has been designing kitchens and baths for the past 22 years, I’ve learned good communication is key to successful remodels. I always recommend my clients ‘talk it out’ amongst themselves and our remodeling team. In every consultation, the biggest question revolves around budget and investment. “How much do you hope to invest in your remodel?” Regardless of the amount, a homeowner invariably wants to understand the impact that a remodel will have on their resale value, and in some occasions, they don’t want to spend more than what they would recoup. 27


Marin Home Resource Guide

According to both the National Association of Realtors and the National Association of the Remodeling Industry’s 2022 Remodeling Impact Report, a complete kitchen renovation recovers an average of 75% of its remodeling costs and comes with a ‘joy score’ (a score of how happy or satisfied a client is) of 9.6 out of 10, with the most important result at 46% better functionality and livability. A bathroom renovation recovers an average of 71% of remodeling costs with a ‘joy score’ of 9.8 out of 10, with the most important result at 40% better functionality and livability. As you begin to discuss your budget, take a small step back and ask yourself five important questions about the overall goal of your remodel and your investment.


“Is my bathroom or kitchen feeling outdated, or are things falling apart?”


“Am I remodeling for lifestyle reasons, such as for my family of multiple cooks who are tripping over each other in the kitchen, or for how I envision another family using the space?”


“Am I remodeling only for looks and style, or to correct major lack-offunction issues?”


“How long am I planning to stay in my home?”


“Does it make sense to remodel now, or just sell my home as-is instead?"

Having a conversation and answering all these questions first with your team will provide you with a clear direction (in terms of budget, plans, etc.) that will make your ‘joy score’ as high as possible. Note that it’s important to compare what is on the home market today and how much your current home’s value has increased from your initial purchase and without doing anything more than basic maintenance. If you were to sell your home now, can you find something else that meets your needs without needing it to be remodeled?

of homes with grayish-beige, or greige, to create a fresh clean look that is neutral enough in a space for anyone to imagine their furnishings. I recommend choosing materials that are light and neutral in color, which don’t evoke emotions beyond clean, organized and welcoming. If you want to add a little personality with a tile pattern, a light fixture or cabinet color, now is the time to take into consideration anything that is harder to switch out later. Steer away from overly stylized and uber trendy material selections to avoid an outdated look.

As a general rule: if you are planning to remain in your home for five years or less, plan out your remodel with your home’s resale in mind; if you’ll be enjoying your home for longer than five years, then remodel for yourself and your lifestyle.

If you don’t plan to sell your home for many more years, don’t sweat it. Remodel for your personality, lifestyle and sense of adventure. Sneak in a tile of your alma mater's mascot into your shampoo niche, go bold with your favorite color, and enjoy life in your “new home!”

When designing a remodel with resale in mind, thinking about your potential buyers and creating a space that will also serve as a future canvas for home staging. For example, many realtors repaint the interior

CREATING A SUSTAINABLE, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY LANDSCAPE When you look at your outdoor space around your home, what do you see? Do your plants, trees and ground cover require minimal amounts of water, or do they guzzle it? Do you know if your landscaping conserves energy and protects the water and air? Does your outdoor space have any habitats beneficial to pollinating insects and other beneficial creatures?

THESE ARE ALL good questions to ask yourself if you want to have a truly sustainable landscape that is compatible with the issues we face now and will continue to grapple with in California: droughts, fire, smoke pollution and climate change. ReScape, a California nonprofit that advocates for regenerative approaches to landscaping, has established eight core principles that all sustainable landscapes should follow: foster healthy soil, conserve water, sequester carbon, conserve energy, create habitats, protect water and air, reduce waste and protect valuable resources while reducing waste and preventing pollution. Here are some ways to get started on transforming your outdoor space to a wholly sustainable environment that will not only be better for Mother Earth, but also beautify and refresh the look around your home.

Act Local

– Hire local, licensed landscape companies who follow the ReScape principles when designing or replanting spaces. Purchase materials within a 50-mile radius or less. Be aware of which soil types, plants and irrigation systems work best in the micro-climate in which you live.

Reduce Waste

– Select the right plant for each area of your outdoor space. When possible, use repurposed and or recycled materials. Deposit all unused plant material and grass clippings in green compost bins versus the landfill. Using compost material in garden and flower beds also helps sequester carbon.

Nurture Soil

– Healthy soil is also living soil. It has a community of microorganisms including worms and other beneficial

creatures that functions like an onsite labor force to filter pollution, store water, provide plants with nutrients and sequester carbon. Healthy soil means healthy plants; healthy plants resist pests naturally; plants that thrive naturally reduce the need for pesticides.

Sequester Carbon – hearty plants and vegetation work together with nourishing soils rich in organic matter and beneficial microorganisms, which in turn remove carbon dioxide from the air and store it as carbon. It’s really that simple! 31

Save Water

– On average, residential landscapes are overwatered by 30% or more. By infusing sustainable techniques into outdoor spaces, you can reduce the amount of water your landscape needs by up to 90%, while mitigating climate change through reducing water-related energy. Efficient irrigation systems and selfadjusting weather-based controllers help to create a holistic approach to drought resistant soils.

Conserve Energy – there are many ways to help conserve energy through sustainable landscaping. Replacing grass with hardscapes or indigenous plants removes the need for mowing and shearing. Planting deciduous trees along the west and southwest sides of your home provides shade and cooling in summer and allows sunlight to shine through in winter—aiding in cool or warming the house. Minimize or eliminate the use of gas-powered equipment.

Protect Air and Water – Maximize permeable surfaces and minimize stormwater runoff – sink it and slow it. Use bio detention basins and retention ponds to slow the amount of water that goes to the street during storms. Minimize and reduce synthetic pesticides and nitrogen fertilizers. Plant trees to help remove carbon dioxide.

Create Habitats – Using California native plants and diversifying palettes in your landscape can provide food, water and shelter for birds, butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects. Using organic pest management helps to conserve valuable wildlife resources. Migrating to a fully sustainable landscape that meets these principles can take time, effort, research and planning, which is why many people choose to engage landscape architects or designers to help with the process. Make sure to verify that landscape professionals are licensed, certified, can provide references and subscribe to the eight core principles. 32

Contributor: Chris Jaurique, Poolcraft IN MARIN COUNTY, it’s possible to enjoy our pools year round, thanks to both a temperate climate and pool heating systems. Properly taking care of our pools to keep them optimally operating requires staying on top of pool maintenance all year long. In the “high season” of Spring and Summer, when pools are used frequently:

Clean filters at the beginning of the swim season to allow pools to circulate more efficiently and catch extra debris.

Turn on the pool equipment (heaters, pump and filters) and set the timers to run 8-10 hours per day.

Check the water quality by taking a sample to a local pool retail store. They can give you a complete rundown on the levels of phosphates, chlorine, acid and alkalinity. Once you have these details, you’ll be better equipped to balance the pool chemicals.

Because pool pumps run between 8 to 10 hours a day, have a professional check to see if yours needs a repair or a tune-up. A well-tuned pump motor will save you energy and cash. To keep algae at bay, consider using a tab floater in a traditional pool (not a salt, fiberglass or vinyl pool) to provide a continual source of chlorine.

Use pool covers to keep the heat in and the debris out.

If your pool is solar-powered, have that heating system inspected by a professional and turned on for the season.

Once temperatures start to cool, it’s time to think about preparing the pool for the “off season”:

Reset pool sweeps and filters to run for 4-6 hours per day.

If you have a pool cover and your area is prone to rain, you should consider investing in a pool cover pump to remove the excess water, which prevents tearing.

Bubble covers and solar blankets should be removed for the rainy season and put away in a dry place to extend the life of the blanket.

Winterize solar pool heating panels by properly draining out the water inside them; this helps prevent bursting in the event of freezing temperatures.

Even with less frequent use, good circulation is key to keeping your pool healthy. Maintain proper water levels – to the middle of the tile line – to make sure the pool’s equipment can properly do its job.






Quality service and a professional touch is the key to maintaining your pool for years to come. Keeping your pool and spa running smoothly is our mission. Poolcraft Inc. is a full-service pool, spa and solar maintenance company that can provide anything from weekly cleaning, repair service, as well as instillation of new equipment.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO REPLACE A HOME? Cal Fire reports that thousands of homes are destroyed each year in California during wildfire season.


$ ?$


Contributor: Kevin Casey New Avenue, Inc.

NO MATTER HOW it happens, the total or partial loss of a home is nothing short of devastating. Naturally, homeowners who have lost their homes are eager to begin rebuilding them. What does it cost to rebuild? Unfortunately, there are no easy or straightforward answers to this question; it really depends on a multitude of factors such as location, square footage, design, and site conditions. These are all details that must be carefully analyzed by both a qualified design professional and a licensed general contractor. Also, because your home should be a place where you want to spend your time, you also want it to reflect your lifestyle and how you like to spend that time. A beautiful kitchen, an office filled with custom shelving, or a home theater room may be important to you. That said, there are some commonalities in rebuilds that always impact price.

Not all areas of the home cost the same to rebuild On average, most kitchen and bathroom rebuilds inside a home can cost upwards of $1,000 per square foot. Why? These rooms tend to require both more extensive work and more expensive materials, and can involve plumbing connections, tile work, cabinets, counters and appliances. There are also special design, engineering, permit, foundation, utilities, and construction costs. On top of that, there are “soft costs,” including project insurance, project administration and other fees such as debris removal and cleaning. 35


Other areas of the home that are less complicated to construct often price out at a lower per-square-foot price. Bedrooms, living areas and dining areas don't require the same types of fixtures and finishes as kitchens and bathrooms, and can price out around $500 per square foot. Rooms located on second floors don’t need a foundation, which can also lower the square foot price.

Scale and the overall square footage of the home Scale is a big component when estimating the cost of a construction project. For example,a 500-square-foot ADU (accessory dwelling unit) will actually cost more per square foot than a 2,000-square-foot home. This has a lot to do with the scale of the project; both projects still require foundations, utilities, materials and soft costs, all of which come with the same base cost. Both will need the more involved construction associated with kitchens and bathrooms versus simpler rooms, such as bedrooms and living spaces.

Marin Home Resource Guide


Factor in the finishes you want

Consider site conditions and location

Costs of finishes can add up quickly, so be selective what you choose because even seemingly small choices can make a big difference. For instance, for your new kitchen, you can choose cabinet pulls that cost $2 apiece or pulls that cost $50 apiece. When you multiply that number by how many pulls you need, that’s one of many costs you will need to consider.

More complicated home sites may require you to spend more on engineers and on construction work to ensure the stability and safety of your home. Depending on where your site is, you may need retaining walls or other stability control measures. In certain fire zones, there may be requirements for defensible space or sprinklers.

Here’s another example. If you are putting in a staircase, a wood framed one covered in shag carpet in a tract home subdivision costs a few hundred dollars. A grand floating stone staircase with engineered and fabricated steel and a glass railing can cost $100,000 or more.

Better than a ballpark figure

Ask yourself what is most important to you in your rebuild.

While it’s safe to assume that you should plan for between $500 to $1000 persquare-foot for a home rebuild, in order to really grasp a solid understanding of your costs, you’ll need to enlist the help of an experienced design/build team. This team should analyze your property from end-to-end, and gain a thorough understanding of your needs in order to provide a more accurate estimate of the cost-per-squarefoot to rebuild.

When you are considering hiring someone to paint your residence or a commercial space for your business, there are a few key pieces of information to know.

The Benefits of Hiring a Professional While painting is something you can sometimes choose to tackle yourself depending on scale, there are distinct advantages to hiring it out. Professional painters have the best tools and have honed their techniques through lots of practice; they can simply do the job more efficiently in a more timely manner and with precision. Top-notch contractors will insist on using high quality paint best suited for your space and understand which paint finishes work and look the best for the various surfaces in your home or commercial space. Additionally, a professional will ensure you have a proper crew size to get the job done efficiently with minimal mess, and ultimately add value to your property.

Ideal Times for Painting Exterior and Interior Surfaces Between early Summer and the advent of Fall is the ideal seasonal window for painting exterior surfaces. Weather conditions are predictable, there is little to no rainfall and one can expect minimal temperature fluctuations from day to night. Sustaining the right temperature ensures that the paint will go on smoothly and have the best chance of drying and curing properly.

On the other hand, finding a painting contractor during this optimal season is challenging, as contractors tend to book up quickly. As such, homeowners may be tempted to schedule exterior paint projects in winter, but be warned. Extreme weather can and will compromise results or prolong the project, as outdoor paint is best applied under certain conditions— low humidity, and temperatures between 35ºF to 85ºF. Any weather fluctuations in the form of rain, snow or wind will create problems. Winter also means shorter days, so painters have less daylight to When sussing out professional painters (or any complete the job. contractor for that matter), ask questions. Don’t just assume because someone looks and acts Winter weather, of course, is only professional and knowledgeable, they check all an obstacle if you are painting the boxes. outdoors. For indoor paint projects, the colder season can Some important questions to ask: be a good time. Aside from taking advantage of slower periods and possibly negotiating a better rate, there is more control over the space’s internal climate through temperature, humidity and lighting adjustments. Inclement or cold weather means fewer opportunities to open windows and doors in order to allow fresh air in, so make sure your paint contractor is using low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint to ensure safety and to minimize fumes.

Questions to Ask a Potential Paint Contractor

 What are your credentials?  Are you licensed, bonded, and insured?  How will you staff my project?  What are your payment terms?

 How do you guarantee your work?

 Can you provide a couple of recent references? Lastly, ask for a written estimate and/or a contract so that all parties are in agreement as to the scope of work and payment.

INTERIOR DESIGNER OR INTERIOR DECRATOR: WHICH IS RIGHT FOR YOU? Within the home renovation industry, there are some roles that are clear cut: general contractors, architects, plumbing and electrical experts. But when homeowners start contemplating making changes to the interior of their homes, they may not understand the role of an interior designer versus an interior decorator. The two terms may sound similar, but they are quite different in their function.


Contributor: Manuela Paparella, MP Design

THE BEST FIT FOR YOUR PROJECT To better understand the roles of interior designers and interior decorators, here’s a list of what each offers.


KEY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN INTERIOR DESIGNERS AND INTERIOR DECORATORS Historically, the design industry has not clearly distinguished between designers and decorators, so it's not entirely surprising there is confusion. Oftentimes, people assume interior designers are all decorators who can only help with soft goods such as fabrics, furniture and window coverings. While they can and often do help with the decorating of a finished home, the job of an interior designer is far more involved. There are two general distinctions that set interior designers apart from decorators. First, interior designers are involved at the beginning of a remodeling project and are intricately involved throughout the planning and construction process. Second, most interior designers have a formal education specifically in design and interior architecture. However, the term "interior designer" is not a protected title in the State of California, as it is in some other states. Anyone here can call themselves an interior designer, with or without a related formal education and skill set to fulfill the basic interior design functions. Although a few certifications for interior designers exist, they are not regulated or required in California. In contrast, interior decorators come in after the new construction or remodeling phase is complete. While most decorators have an excellent eye for color and style they have honed over several years, they typically are not formally trained as designers.

 Is hired early in the planning and budgeting phase of a project.  Addresses the function of a space—for example, in a kitchen or bath remodel—and how to improve the space through planning based on the client’s needs and intended use of the space.

 Recommends, selects and specifies fixtures and finishes that are consistent with the home’s architecture. This can include cabinetry, ceiling design, flooring, recessed lights, plumbing fixtures, countertops, windows/skylights and doors for remodels, like kitchens and baths. Can design commercial tenant improvements such as offices and restaurants.  Drafts construction plans (this is a major distinction between the two professions), must know local planning and building codes, prepares specifications and interacts with consultants such as engineers, contractors, energy consultants and building officials.

 Can submit construction documents for planning and building permit review and obtain permits on behalf of a client, depending on the scope of work.  Can place orders for interior finishes, fixtures, cabinets and other items as well as plan/ design/oversee custom fabrication designs such as custom built-in cabinetry.  Can offer all the same services as an interior decorator at the end of a construction project.

AN INTERIOR DECORATOR:  Recommends, selects and specifies furniture, lamps, and soft goods such as fabrics, rugs and bedding.  May recommend window treatments and assist with art selection.  Assists with creating comprehensive color and decorating schemes for rooms and spaces and can help with interior paint color selection.  Can purchase furnishings on behalf of the client.

of the North Bay Builders Exchange’s insurance trust. Prior to 2000, the Marin Builders Association played a major role with the state compensation insurance trust and oversaw dividend negotiations. As the insurance business evolved and expanded into health coverage, Oliver helped develop and maintain quality service for all participants. His role has required patience, commitment, and dedication within a constantly shifting regulatory environment.

The future of the county and the MBA is only limited by our own abilities to envision what benefits the community as a whole. As I move into the later part of my business career, I can’t wait to see what the younger generation does to improve our built environment. What’s next?

The Marin Builders Association has selected Oliver Dibble as the recipient of the Peter Arrigoni Building Community Leadership Award. The award recognizes an individual for excellence in both industry leadership and community involvement. The association chooses awardees based on their dedication to industry, commitment to education and their support of the Marin Builders Association’s goals and initiatives. The award was established in 2018 in honor of the late Peter Arrigoni who served as General Manager of the Marin Builders Association from 1977 to 2003. Oliver has more than 50 years of expertise in the building trades, consisting of roles ranging from apprentice to project executive. Following his early days working in his family's contracting business, he has been associated with many high-profile projects throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Oliver has been a licensed general contractor since 1980, a member of the Marin Builders Association since 1986 and is a former president of the association’s board of directors (2003). Oliver’s storied career began with his father,


a residential developer and spec builder in San Francisco and Marin in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s and later, in Sun Valley, Idaho. Oliver started working for his dad at the tender age of 12, first digging ditches in the summers, then as a carpenter at the age of 15, continuing on until after he finished college at U.C. Berkeley. Shortly after graduation, Oliver founded Dibble & Company and secured his contractor’s license. Oliver joined the Builders Association in 1986 (known as the Marin Builders Exchange at that time). As a new member, one of the first events Oliver attended was at the Marin Rod & Gun Club, where he met a gregarious Italian gentleman barbequing on a giant grill. The man had more than 100 chickens cooking at once, brushing sauce on them with a large broom made of bundled rosemary bushes. This was Oliver’s first introduction to Pete Arrigoni, then the manager of the Exchange. Oliver was enthralled, and immediately volunteered his time serving on various committees, including finance and insurance. After a few years of committee service, he was asked to join the board of directors. Oliver’s role further expanded to a trustee

- Oliver Dibble, Dibble & Company

Over his tenure of nearly three decades of leadership at the Marin Builders Association, Oliver has been part of a construction industry that is evolving. Strong competition, smaller margins, a shrinking workforce, and a fluctuating regulatory market make the industry a home for the nimble and astute business owner. He helps the association stay ahead of market forces to effectively advocate on behalf its membership withing the community. Those efforts have evolved into numerous initiatives including permit simplicity and workforce training programs. Oliver believes optimism is key to achieving success in the construction business. In 2022, he continues his commitment to helping Marin Builders Association’s leadership strengthen its bond with the community at large as well as grow as a valuable resource to all members. Oliver adds, “The future of the county and the MBA is only limited by our own abilities to envision what benefits the community as a whole. As I move into the later part of my business career, I can’t wait to see what the younger generation does to improve our built environment. What’s next?” The Marin Builders Association is honored to present the Peter Arrigoni Building Community Leadership Award to Oliver Dibble of Dibble & Company. Congratulations, Oliver!

LET US CONSTRUCT THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME FOR YOU With over 39 years of experience handling all types of construction projects, from startup contracting through claims and disputes, Kate Warner Construction Lawyers has built solid relationships with top industry experts and can assemble a targeted team to help you get results. Out-of-the-box solutions, including under-utilized project management systems and dispute resolution options, save you time and money, deliver successful outcomes and help preserve your important business relationships.


Our new house came with glowing promises, but those were shattered immediately when we were sued by one of their unpaid suppliers. KWCL not only got us out of that AND got all our expenses and fees paid, but, when defects began appearing, KWCL assembled a credible and practical team of experts that was able to find all the buried and serious shortcuts and defects. KWCL got us a recovery that paid for it.”

KWCL's team has humor, tenacity, and industry insights that got us to a place we don't think any other firm could have. KWCL chased the Developer's team over every hurdle they dodged behind (including serious and arcane damage theories and insurance coverage!), and got them to pay for ALL our repairs and loss of use, and all our litigation expenses. KWCL then even worked with our repair team to assure they got it right.”

KWCL helped our Construction Co. defend several devastating claims and salvage problem projects; then after saving our business, guided us on improving our practices so that won’t happen again. Now we start every project with a KWCL ‘check-in’ and have happy customers as a result.”
