Erin Loftin has joined the design team at Talmadge Construction. Loftin, a native to the area, has moved back to Santa Cruz to accept the position after spending the past two years working in Campbell.
Erin is thrilled to be back working and living in the Santa Cruz area. She is proud to be designing and working for Jeff Talmadge, a person she has always maintained a strong professional admiration for. “I love this community,” Loftin said. “I’ve lived and worked in so many wonderful areas (Monterey, Pebble Beach, Santa Clara, Morgan Hill, San Jose, Campbell, Los Gatos), but the support and genuine connection within this community… and company, is very special and unique.”
The team at Talmadge Construction views Loftin as a great addition to an already top-notch group. “We’re all really excited about Erin, she has great design sense and a fun approach to space-saving and problem solving in the home,” said Jeff Talmadge. “We’re happy to be working together and know that our clients are going to appreciate her talent and personality.”
Loftin realized her professional calling when she was just 12 years old – the day her grandfather brought her an article about residential design. “He’d bring over magazines and editorials about bridges and engineering, which didn’t hold my attention, but when he started talking to me about architects and home design, I was hooked and knew that was something I wanted to study.”
Her favorite room to design is the kitchen because it serves the heart of the home and has a big impact on lifestyle, from how often you entertain to your daily morning routine. In addition to kitchens, Loftin has an interest in Universal Design and Age-in-Place remodeling – helping people adapt their homes to their changing physical needs. She also holds two certifications in sustainable and green design.
