Amy Morgan


Amy came to MacLeod Design & Construction with a background in financial management for a large property management organization. She has been with MacLeod Design & Construction, however, for almost ten years now and has adapted well and enjoys working in this small company environment. Amy also studied Studio Art and occassionally finds time to practice this skill in her free time. At work, she just enjoys being around the creative process. She is the one that usually answers the phone when you call the office, and she is always eager to hear what you have in mind for your upcoming projects.

Greg Tolman


A licensed building contractor in California since 1990, with a Master of Architecture degree from U.C. Berkeley, Greg thinks of himself first as a master carpenter, having gained the basic skills of the craft at his father’s side as a boy, and followed his passions for design, building, and especially working with wood for most of his life. Along the way, he has operated a custom cabinet shop, built houses in high Sierra, and garnered two awards from Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association for the careful restoration of notable buildings by Bernard Maybeck and Jack Hillmer. Greg works independantly and is on-call to help out with our trickiest projects. He also helps by filling in when the work load requires it or to supervise job site construction if Ian is unavailable.
