A before and after that will make your jaw drop!

We started design on this Shingle Springs kitchen remodel in Late 2021 and started construction in January 2022 and finished this beautiful kitchen in May 2022. The clients goals were to update their outdated kitchen and create a light and bright  space that was perfect for hosting family and friends.  The results were above and beyond clients initial expectations and everyone was happy with the finished project.

Current Project Check In: Macduff Addition 

Construction: Tankersley Construction, Inc. 
Design: Marin Design Co.
The clients' goals for this project was to completely transform their cramped and dated kitchen space to accommodate their growing family. We achieved this by removing multiple walls between the living room and kitchen, in addition to vaulting the ceilings. One challenge of this project was tying in the new addition to the existing living space and making the transition seamless between the new and the old.  The solution our team came up with was to transform the existing laundry room into a much needed coffee/beverage center to ensure a functioning use of the space.  We are excited to see the project transform as we move through the next phases of wall texture, paint and cabinetry!

Its looks like a PARTY!! But this is the way we host a NARI Chapter Meeting!

We got to host the NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) August Chapter Meeting. It was an incredible night of networking and industry related education. We had an opportunity to share how TCI works with our Trade Partners to create a strong team, that starts early in the process to help with better communication between Architects, Designers, Subcontractors and Vendors to help streamline the customer experience.

Working with the Tankersley team was fantastic. In the begininng we truly didnt know how and what we wanted to do. They worked with us, and helped us build our dream kitchen, and also helped from a budget persepctive as to what we could and couldnt do. From the design, to the final product, we felt like they helped us all the way through it. -Tim M. 


Are building prices coming down?
Whenever someone finds out I am a contractor, the most commonly asked question is “What is your market doing?”. For many, the boom and bust of 2008 is still painfully fresh, and a common perception is that we are in the same cycle. I often hear that people are waiting for building prices to come down, and naturally I am asked what my prediction is. My prediction: Right now is the cheapest time to build in the next ten years. 

While I am not an economist by any stretch of the imagination, I am on the front lines of the residential building market. I see first hand the labor shortages, the material escalations, and the ever increasing demand for housing in our region. I witnessed firsthand the 2008 collapse in the building and real estate.  At that time, there was a glut of housing due to speculation and a far larger labor pool of skilled trades to draw upon. There seemed to be a limitless supply of materials and labor to feed the insatiable demand for new building as production homebuilders developed hundreds of lots at a time. 

After the bust of 2008, skilled trade workers left by the droves to other industries. As the construction industry rebuilt itself, the skilled trades never returned. Industry experts say the trades lost nearly a million skilled workers during the recession that have yet to be replaced, and as older workers retire, the crunch will get even tighter. 1. While exact numbers vary, more people are retiring or leaving the trades than entering, up to a 5:1 ratio.  2. There is a real shortage of skilled labor, which continues to drive the pay rate for skilled individuals as employers clamor to recruit and retain talent. There is no resolution in sight for this shortage, and labor costs make up 70% of a project cost on average. 

Material escalations have dominated the headlines since 2020. While these escalations are certainly real, their affect on the overall project costs have been exaggerated. It is understandable many people are waiting for material prices to come down before starting their project. And while they very may well come down, they will never return to pre-pandemic levels. Furthermore, while these people are waiting for material prices to come down, labor prices are increasing double digit percentages every year. 

The entire country is experiencing a housing shortage. New housing starts have not kept up with population growth, and there is no end in sight. We are experiencing a housing shortage, a skilled labor shortage, and it is unlikely we will see any significant material cost decreases due underlying demand. Until we can solve the housing shortage and the skilled trade shortage, there is no reason why right now isn’t the cheapest time to build in the next decade.
