MAY2021: We Want To Hear From You!
Spring Has Sprung
We are well into spring, and the weather has been…typical for Nebraska – unpredictable. It keeps us on our toes and keeps life interesting. It also reminds us that we need to continually keep an eye out for areas around our home that might need some fresh caulk or new components altogether. Check to see if frost heave has caused pavers or patios to move. You’ll want to fix any unevenness for safety reasons. Wood fences and gates may have also suffered over the winter months. Wood will move or twist, so check for loose fencing and sagging gates. Check the caulking around doors and windows to make sure the seal is still intact. You don’t want the elements coming into your home, or little critters. You can wash the windows while you’re checking the caulking. It’s time to let the sunshine in and enjoy those May flowers! You might want to spend some time grilling while you enjoy the flowers outside, so be sure to clean out the grill. Last year’s bar-b-cue won’t contribute well to this year’s grilling.

Out of nearly 2,000 eligible applicants, we are one of 400+ businesses recognized in the United States for delivering superior customer care. The two primary metrics considered were because you, our customers, both responded to the survey sent out once your project was completed and also stated you would recommend us to a friend. We are so proud of this achievement and work very hard to make sure our customers are well taken care of. You are why we do what we do. Thank you for your support and feedback!

Featured Project Atrium Alterations
When this house was built, it included an atrium area so homeowners could enjoy live plants and greenery year-round. Over the years the appeal for this feature has diminished, along with the step down it required, that could be awkward or even dangerous. Besides unifying the flooring, the homeowners also wanted to perk up the kitchen.
The brick around the sunken atrium had to be removed, along with all the flooring surrounding it and into the dining room and hallway. Then some leveling needed to occur due to the varying flooring styles we started with, and insulation installed. Once everything was prepared, the pretty stuff could start coming in.
The cabinets were painted in place, while the doors were taken to the painter’s shop for paint. A new countertop and backsplash were installed. The guys started working on installing the sleek hardwood floor chosen by the homeowners in a Nordic color. (It looks like it’s going smoothly!) Finally, we end up with a main floor with a smooth, cohesive look throughout, and a perked-up kitchen.
WHAT WOULD JENNY DO?
Recently Jenny was asked, “How do you treat a veined countertop in a U-shaped kitchen?” Jenny helped them envision how it would look and explained, “if you cut the slab, so the vein turns corners, it makes a great impact and looks purposeful.”
In the late 1800s, a law created in Lehigh, Nebraska, forbid merchants from selling donut holes. One lawmaker claimed donut holes were a waste and believed that by selling the middle of the donut, bakers were trying to make an undue profit. Thankfully, the law was repealed in the late 1990s, but these tasty round treats are still hard to come by in the town of Lehigh.
