Two Morrows builders is a company owned and operated by Bruce and Buffy Morrow since 1980.

We established Two Morrows Builders after getting married and settling in Emeryville, Ca in the East Bay area of San Francisco. In conjunction with Robin Freeman, then of Berkeley Creators (Walter O'Brien) , who later established the Environmental Studies program at Merritt College, Oakland, we sought to restore existing, mostly Victorian architecture which was threatened everywhere by the wrecking ball. What we saw in these old buildings was the last remaining vestiges of the old growth redwood forests that once covered the entire Bay Area. As these buildings were mowed down to make room for “modern housing” (low cost modular schlock), we saw a double demise. Our response with others in our community was to get our hands on as many of these buildings as we could afford and give them new life. Jordan French has done a lot of work around the community and throughout the island. See more of his feats at his column
