her years as a builder, Cynthia has also worked on a variety of large
and small new construction and remodel jobs as Dancing Dog Design
Build and Dancing Dog Construction. Projects range from custom
homes, second units, artist studios, to fences, decks, arbors,
basement/garage conversions, additions, kitchens and bath remodels.
As an instructor for the Building
Education Center in Berkeley she taught a
quarterly “hands-on” deck-building class using local job sites for over
seven years. The best part of this work was seeing students become
empowered to tackle their own construction projects.
