It’s been another wonderful year of building things, tearing other things down, and making still other things look so new, you’d think we’d torn them down and rebuilt them.
The big takeaway from this year is that we could remodel, paint, seal, and repipe every building in Oregon if all their owners asked. We’ve been proud of our work all along–hence that little chestnut we like to call our 12-year warranty–but the feeling swells all the more when you see it persist amid the kind of growth we’ve achieved this year.
Highlights from a Fantastic Year
We hope this blog has been as helpful as it’s been fun and interesting to write. Sometimes it’s about how to DIY easy home improvements, sometimes it’s about why hiring professional contractors like us is the way to go. Other times, we like to just get the inspiration stirring and talk about what’s possible. Here’s a quick look back at our three favorite topics from this year.
#3 – Your bathroom doesn’t have to feel like an industrial echo chamber. Try incorporating a little earthiness in the decor, some spaciousness in the layout, and color everywhere possible!
#2 – Painting a room yourself can end up being more trouble than the saved money is worth. On the other hand, when a professional does it for you, it’s pretty much like the paint fairy came. The wall looks new, the floor is clean, and not a scrap of evidence gets left behind.
#1 – If you like friends, time, or eating things, then you’re probably loving the double oven cabinet you must have installed this year. If you are, it’s likely that chief among your reasons is that double oven cabinets are perfect for housing double ovens. Keep calm and cook on, renovators! Enjoy that casserole and how separate it is from the cookies!
New Year’s Resolution Ideas
Thanksgiving. Christmas. New Year’s. Regular dinner. Snack time. All of these are invariably reminders of how much or little you like your kitchen. If the time is finally right, give us a call and talk about it with us. We’ll talk free estimates, timelines, how to adapt to construction in your house, and–most importantly–what you want.
Once the new year starts, you have about three months to beat the rush of all the other homeowners who want to paint their houses. Set up your inspection early and start smiling when you see your house from the driveway again!
Do right by your workshop or garage. Coat the floors with something that will preserve them through all the abuse they take. It’s important enough to be careful not to hurt yourself–stop worrying about the floor too!
