SE HEALTH School of Nursing - Remodel - Cape Girardeau, MO

In January of 2017 I started working on the SE Health School of Nursing and Health Sciences with Dr. Tonya Buttry (president of the school at the time and now Dean of Nursing) and Pam Davidson  (architect and owner of Keystone Design) to renovate the once Bank of America Building aka home of First State Community Bank. 

What started out as just the first floor being remodeled, quickly turned into the entire building after a pipe busted on the 3rd floor, causing damage. The proposed materials had already been  selected by the time the damaged materials were being replaced, this allowed all of the finishes to coordinate throughout all three floors. 

My scope included:

Coordinating finishes including carpet tiles, homogeneous vinyl flooring, rubber bases, paint, plastic laminate for countertops and cabinetry, ceiling tile and grid.

Design concepts were conceived including repurposing the existing glass wall to apply a colorful vinyl wordle in the lobby; adding bright red sound absorbing wallpaper and 1x’s to the walls over the red and then carrying them across the ceiling in mid air (suspended with aircraft cable) to meet up with the other side of the room in a bouncing ray effect and then lights were installed under the suspended 1x’s; keeping, re-covering and painting the existing oval columns orange to help break-up the long open lobby; and painting the tray drop ceiling orange to coordinate with the accent color in the carpet tile, columns, countertops, furniture and most of all the SE HEalth logo. 

Furniture was the icing on the cake. Looking for and selecting the furniture was a little more fun that normal. It’s not everyday that your client’s marketing colors are orange, red, yellow and black and you have’ve grown a relationship and the ability to search for furniture from here to Chicago and Chicago to Milwaukee just to find the right pieces. 

Wednesday, March 27, 2019, a ribbon cutting and open house was held at the school. Tours were given and the new president, Dr. Steven D. Langdon, gave a lovely speech introducing himself and thanking all that we’re involved  in the remodel. 

Please enjoy the following before and after shots.

Kidd’s Convenience Store-Update

Now that all the dust has settled at the newly built Kidd’s Convenience Store (located on Broadway and West End in downtown Cape Giraradeau, MO) hopefully you’ve had a chance to “pop” in to check out the precisely selected finishes and to smell and sample the freshly popped gourmet popcorn and to grab a fresh warm caffeinated beverage of your choice. 

This is the best looking gas station I’ve seen so far, but maybe I’m biased. Please make sure to take note of the repurposed beams in the ceiling, the signage above the cooler doors and the custom design tile on the main drink station walls.  

I hope you enjoy, let me know what you think!

Warm Country Welcome, Uniontown, MO-Update

I told you all I would send after shots of this exterior remodel and here they are. One thing I love about my business is that I get to meet all types of people and work on all types of projects. 

The home owner remove and replace the landscaping themselves as planned, but decided to have a local contractor come in to  make the exterior facade changes and the addition of the pergola as we discussed. 

Working with the contractor and the concretors was a seamless process, with no bumps and everyone involved was more than extatic to see the finished product.

Oak Hills Remodel- Cape Girardeau, MO

Towards the end of last summer a new client was given my name to assist in a selecting some new finishes for a fresher updated look throughout the main areas of the home and a complete remodel of the upstairs Jack and Jill bathroom. 

A lot of attention when into the planning and scheduling to make sure it was a well orchestrated project ; with subs staying on task and timeline. 

The majority of the home:

The casing and base trim was painted, the old hardwood was removed, new hardwood was installed, new carpet going up the steps was ordered and installed and new light fixtures were selected and changed out. 

In the Jack and Jill bath:

The carpet was removed from the floor, new 12x24 tile was installed on a brick pattern, the dated brass framed sliding shower doors were removed and the holes were professionally sealed, wallpaper was roomed and the walls and the cabinetry were painted coordinating colors, a new marble looking quartz with under mount sinks was swapped out with the existing cultured marble, new chrome fixtures, hardware and accessories (shower curtain rod, rings, shower curtain, silver beaded mirror, towel rings and bar and tissue holder were ordered and installed. 

The project stayed on schedule and was kept to a minimum time frame due to the fact that the client chose to stay at the home during the remodel.
