Blueprints are helpful for us, the contractor, but are limited in their ability to convey aesthetic ideas. Also, we don’t expect our customers to be architects or engineers, and chances are that your daily life doesn’t involve pouring over plans. Looking at a blueprint for the first time can seem like deciphering a forgotten language. Busting out rulers and graph paper to sketch out your own design usually looks like something that should be hung on the fridge, rather than an official document on where to place the fridge.
Everyone has their thing. A lot of attention has been given to man caves. We’ve all seen elaborate home theaters. Garages with epoxy floors, Gladiator storage, and every tool imaginable displayed above a workbench like an episode of Top Gear. But let’s face it, way more of our life is spent in the bathroom–and we’re about to change your idea of what this space could be.
The kitchen is the centralized hub of the hub of the home. Let’s face it, it has the food. Not only does it see the most activity, but a well-functioning kitchen is the heartbeat of your family’s wellbeing. This is the space where the people you’re supposed to love get their nourishment, remorseless late-night snacks are snuck, meaningful conversations are had with teenagers, and everyone at the party seems to congregate. It’s understandable that many production home buyers want to improve this space, and it’s usually the first major upgrade our clients make. However, there’s always a bit of trepidation–people imagining the construction downtime being insurmountable and dust. People always mention dust.
School from home is a foreign idea to many of us. Beyond being able to help with middle school science and remembering the periodic table, logistically, fostering a place for concerted learning is also presenting itself as a challenge. District 11, Academy District 20, District 49, Cheyenne Mountain School District 12, as well as alternative learning options are turning to home schooling choices.
We’re only a week into the new school year, but we’ve already been getting calls from families with young children. Sadly, the first few days have been pretty rough–bringing both parents and kids to tears as they struggle with technology and adjusting to a new socially distant routine. These families are seeking a refuge–a productive environment filled with the tools they need to manage this new reality from within the home.
Let’s face it, Coloradoans have a tenacious spirit of solving our own problems. However, we’re also inodiated with modern life. As El Paso county grows, sprawling eastward along Woodmen to Meridian Ranch, south to Security and Fountain, and up to the massive expansion off of Interquest and North Gate, our tiny community is becoming a metropolitan mecca. With all of the recent construction, countless contractors have flooded Colorado Springs. How can you tell the difference between the good and bad, and what are the benefits of hiring a quality contractor?
