Current Projects


Portola Redwoods Visitor Center Revitalization Project

After spending a couple of years improving the front porch, we are ready to work on the building itself. Replacement of the roof and weatherproofing / dual-pane windows. We’ve also identified other improvements: electrical work, lighting, a new HVAC system, and an engineering review of the old historic fireplace.
