What does it mean to be Powered by Orange? Brian and Kris Egan, owners of Corvallis Custom Kitchens and Baths (CCKB), know and will share the secrets of their success with PBO fans at a June 9 “Tweet-Up” at their acclaimed business, at the CCKB showroom, 602 NW 4th St.
CCKB is located in the Caton House, the oldest Corvallis house still in its original location, occupying the corner of Fourth Street and Polk since 1857. The Egans lovingly restored the property in 2007, earning the city’s Historic Preservation Award the following year, as well as a place on the National Register of Historic Homes.
The Egans will share the stories of that restoration, with its careful reuse of many of the home’s original materials, and of CCKB itself, with its emphasis on sustainability, energy efficiency and recycling, with attendees at the Powered by Orange Tweet-Up, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served, as well, including sangria, beer and tasty treats.
A Tweet-Up is an event promoted mostly or solely through Twitter, the wildly popular social microblogging site known for its 140-character message limit. Tweet-Ups often bring together people who only know each other “virtually” in real-world settings and are increasingly appreciated for their ability to make promoting events simple and dynamic.
