Tim Patton was born and raised in California’s San Joaquin Valley. He relocated to Humboldt County after falling in love with its natural beauty in 1972. Tim grew up working at his family’s construction business. He always worked with his hands, starting in sheet metal, and milling before becoming a woodworker. In 1980 he founded Arcata Cabinet & Design Company. His goal was to provide quality cabinetry at a fair price and enjoy the process along the way. In the late 90’s he integrated his son and daughter into the business to teach them a bit of responsibility. Little did he know, his guidance would help them grow to become experts in the cabinet and kitchen industry. On the weekends, Tim enjoys kayaking with his dog Sachi and taking walks on the redwood trails.
