Dear Loyal CATT Members

The CATT office is now open since Truckee, as part of the Greater Sacramento Region, has been lifted from the Regional Stay at Home Order. The health and safety of our membership and Truckee-Tahoe community continue to be top priority at this time. Staff communicates weekly industry updates and resources related to COVID-19. If you are interested in scheduling a meeting in the CATT office, please call ahead so we can ensure that CDC guidelines for workplaces are being followed. Attending CATT meetings remotely will continue to be offered as an option.

Kitchen Remodels


If a home can be likened to a wheel then the kitchen would certainly be the hub. Whether you are entertaining guests for a holiday weekend or serving breakfast while packing school lunches, the kitchen tends to be the place where people congregate. Money invested in a kitchen is enjoyed daily and always adds value to a home.

Layout Improvements and Design:

  • Reconfiguring a kitchen's layout can greatly increase the storage capacity and functionality of an existing or expanded kitchen space.
  • Removing an existing wall or a row of upper cabinets can open a kitchen to the rest of a home, creating an open feel that is more suited to today's lifestyle.
  • Adding bar stool seating allows people to be included in the conversation without getting in the way of the work.
  • Whether you like a rustic, distressed look or a brighter, more modern appearance, kitchen cabinets can be customized to suit your style.


Today's Popular Features:

  • Solid surface counter tops and an under-mount sink make cleaning a breeze.
  • Distinctive tile back splashes are a great canvas for stylistic expression.
  • New lighting can brighten a work station or be adjusted to set a softer mood.
  • Sliding cabinet shelves, built-in waste and recycling containers, and full extension self-closing drawers all add space and value to a kitchen upgrade.
  • Two sinks or even two dishwashers keep things flowing in a larger kitchen.
  • Energy efficient appliances improve the look and comfort of your kitchen while decreasing your bottom line and providing a tax credit.
