OKTOBERFEST Oct 16th 2015
It was Oktoberfest at Homewood Lumber last week! Homewood, one of the PCCA’s greatest friends, sponsored the popular annual party featuring live music and, of course, beer and traditional Oktoberfest treats.
PCCA members and guests enjoyed bratwurst, brocwurst, tri tip sandwiches, pretzels and mustard, sauerkraut and potatoes, along with the brews that make Oktoberfest famous!
The event featured live music from local favorite The Voiceover Band, known for its vast repertoire of party/dance hits from the 50s, 60s and 70s through to the present.
Homewood Lumber, located at 4011 Sierra College Blvd. in Loomis, began as a lumberyard, establishing strong relationships with builders and taking a real interest in their businesses. The firm now provides a huge assortment of goods and services to the building community, offering assistance with bids, takeoffs, product selection, code related solutions, and construction practices. Homewood has a continuing commitment to offer clients the highest quality new products and ideas at competitive prices.
September 23rd 2014
El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce and The El Dorado Builders Exchange (PCCA) Held a mixer at the EDBE Planroom in Cameron Park. We had a great time, and wish to thank The Chamber for all of their effort and support. We have also completed the clean up and reorganization of the plan take off room. No more running upstairs to view the projects. The plan room is down stairs, with a wide screen monitor for the digital prints and on screen take off system, and a nice spot to roll out the paper plans.
If you haven’t stopped by and met Bryanna yet, then get over to the Cameron Park office and check in, get the tour and see what we are doing and still plan to do.
February 21st PCCA Annual Dinner
Three outstanding properties, and many special people, were recognized at last week’s 2014 Annual PCCA Dinner at the Timber Creek Lodge at Sun City Roseville.
At the gala event, members were introduced to their new Board, heard from local luminaries and applauded the award winners for the Best Public Works, Commercial and Residential projects of 2013.
Members of the 2014 Board received certificates acknowledging their service from the U.S. Congress and the California State Senate, thanks to efforts of Congressman Doug La Malfa and Senator Jim Nielson. The presentations were made by the officials’ aides, Jennifer Horne and Christine Rydell.
In the first of several presentations, County Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery predicted shorter waiting times at the counter as she explained county efforts to streamline and update processes for securing permits and inspections. She also revealed some of the county’s plans for growth in West Placer County, including talks with both the University of Warrick and CSUS aimed at bringing more college classrooms (and construction) to Placer County.
Bonnie Gore, a councilmember with theCity of Roseville, said the city is committed
to a new hotel and conference center near the Galleria in Roseville, among other exciting plans for future growth, particularly in West Roseville. She also detailed the city’s efforts to make it easier for contractors to deal with city offices.
City of Lincoln Councilman Spencer Short commented on his city’s abundance of water for projects and the city’s desire to keep in touch with industry professionals. “If there is anything you need from us” he said, “just let us know. We want to keep you moving and working.”
Taking the Best Public Works award was the CHP Roof Project in Grass Valley. The award was accepted by J.R. Parquette of SCAFCQ, who explained some of the difficulties in shipping and installing joists up to 30′ long, as well as some of the other challenges met by a team that included General Contractor DPR, the Architect, Engineer and numerous subs.
Mike Garman of Califomia Construction and Renovation accepted the award for Best Residential Project, the Hughes residence in Lincoln. Mike and his crew received additional kudos from the owners themselves, who attended the dinner. Mr. Hughes thanked his contractor and declared himself “blessed” to live in such a beautiful home.
Taking Best Commercial Project was the Truckee Animal Shelter. Robert Weitzel , representing A & A Glass Shop, explained some of the special conditions of the project, which was a learning opportunity for many of those involved.
November 8th 2013 Abalone and Tri Tip Feast
The PCCA would like to thank the many sponsors and participants of the November 8th, 2013 Abalone and Tri-Tip Feast!
This was a spectacular event with around 120 people converging on the Roseville Planroom.
The planroom itself was converted into party central as the plan tables were moved out and the dinner tables moved in.
The more than popular Beer, Wine and Mixed Drink bar was sponsored by the law firm of Murphy, Austin, Adams, Schoenfeld LLP who is also teaching the mechanics lien class on Wednesday November 13th. State Fund sponsored the Soft Drinks. Thanks Mike Bennett for bartending!
The Raffle Drawing is always a popular event. We had some fantastic sponsors this year. The top prizes were a Kindle Fire and a Samsung 43″ Plasma TV.
Special Thanks to the generous sponsors of the raffle prizes.

Of course, none of it would have been possible without the generous support of the Department of Fish and Game, and wonderful groups like Trout Unlimited who provided and arranged for the Abalone.
Homewood Lumber supplied the Tri Tip and BBQs.
Remington Construction supplied more BBQs, helped organize the event, and brought out the hay bails and outdoor fire pit for a great evening out side.
Thanks also go out to The Blue Goose who kindly loaned us the extra tables.
This wouldn’t have happened, however, without all of you attending. This was a great night of feasting, games and networking.
