Celebrate Pleasanton’s Open Heart Kitchen By Donating Goods From a Newly Remodeled Pantry

Posted by Larry Fox on Feb 21, 2017 11:23:23 AM

Pleasantonians are proud of their picturesque, quiet city, and rightfully so. With First Wednesdays, the best fairgrounds in the Tri-Valley, and a charming downtown—plus free parking throughout the city—this is definitely a suburb with a small town feel where you would want to raise a family. “The second Silicon Valley,” as Pleasanton has been nicknamed, is a thriving place full of friendly faces and generous people.

Pleasanton’s own Open Heart Kitchen, a nonprofit that has been incredibly active with feeding those in need, recently came across a major obstacle in operations: a two-alarm fire at Vineyard Christian Fellowship in Livermore, their second location and a major storage facility for foodstuffs. The Pleasanton community has stepped up to the plate magnificently to help the organization continue operations as normal, but this month they’re more in need of our help than ever to serve this community and spread the love.

Pleasanton is a young town brimming with freshly started families. Over a quarter of the population is under 18. What’s more, a lot of the kids in the neighborhood are just now entering the serious homework phase of school—and that means needing a workspace of their own.

Three Ways Custom Cabinetry Makes Your Pleasanton Home Exercise Room More Exciting

Posted by Larry Fox on Jul 26, 2016 12:55:55 PM

We’ve done projects all around Pleasanton, and it really is one of my favorite areas in the East Bay, combining the charm of a small town with the upscale nightlife of the city. The downside, of course, is the terrible commute. It’s bad enough driving to San Jose or Oakland, but if you work further west in the Valley, you’re in for a rough time.

A Custom Media Center Makes Your Pleasanton Home the Neighborhood Hotspot

Driving around in Pleasanton, you notice a few things. First of all, it's a great place for families, as all the people leisurely walking down Main Street let us know. USA Today even says it is the 4th-best place to live in the country (though residents might question why it’s not first). The second thing you notice is that construction of new houses is a booming business. Pleasanton homes tend to be roomy, with 3-and-4 bedroom homes having more square footage than the national average. Houses that size need a center, a focal point for family and friends. For many, and especially for families in Pleasanton, that choice is the room with the media center. It’s where you gather to watch TV, and where the kids can play video games, or watch a documentary that helps them with their homework. It’s a room that’s going to get a lot of use, and it’s important to get it right. Given that media alcoves in newly constructed homes range from 48-96” wide, finding furniture pieces to fit properly can be difficult, even if the space is already fully wired for power, internet and television. That makes custom cabinetry the perfect solution.
