Courtyard by Marriot - Christmas Installation- Cape Girardeau, MO

I know. I know. Christmas has come and gone, but since the end of last year was a bit busy, I still wanted to take the opportunity to show all of you how the Christmas decor turned out for the new Courtyard by Marriot, in downtown Cape Girardeau, MO.

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.

Cape MRV Bank to Move -Cape Girardeau, MO

Towards the end of last year I was approached about pulling together interior and exterior finishes together for MRV Bank’s new location, located at the corner of Mount Auburn and Kingshighway in Cape Girardeau, MO. MRV (Mississippi River Valley) Bank is a newer bank, about ten years old, that has additional locations in Ste.Genevieve, Sikeston and now Festus, MO. Learn more at http://www.mrvbanks.com/

MRV Bank held a ground breaking ceremony on March 30, 2018 on the property of the new location. Local MRV Bank employees, all board members, Cape Chamber members, Boulder Construction (general contracting company) owner and general manager, Repperts (commercial furniture sales), myself and others locals were in attendance. 

The exterior of the building was designed to mimic the Ste.Gen location with its taupe colored dryvit and Ste.Gen limestone facade. The interior finishes were specifically selected for this branch, which include, off-white and greige tones on the walls, midnight ebony stained casing, base trim and cabinetry accents, walnut doors and furniture, quartz countertops, greige carpet tiles installed multiple ways, small accents of the MRV blue throughout and custom etched vinyl applications, lighting fixtures, architectural features and wall/floor tile installations that mirror the bank’s logo.

Over the past month final installations of furniture, art, lighting fixtures and internet were completed and the staff was able to move into their new location. This past Thursday, November 1s a Chamber Ribbon Cutting was held at 10:00 with a small reception following and Friday, November 2nd the MRV Bank staff had an open house from 11:00-2:00. Shawn Cook (the branch president) and his staff, including Robbie Guard, are extremely pleased and proud of their new space and are eager to show it off.  I encourage everyone to stop by if you’re in the area and take a peak and say hi.
