Child & Family Early Childhood Development Center

see it here....

We were given this awesome framed photo from the staff and kids at Child and Family Early Childhood Development Center in Groton, CT after repairing extensive termite damage to the flooring system. We made repairs, installed a new vinyl plank floor and painted. The challenge was moving the teachers and kids between rooms and still completing the work in under 3 weeks. Thank you to everyone at Child and Family! We love the photo, and it will be hanging in our office!

Longtime residents of Watch Hill build their dream home

Watch-Hill-Dream-Home-webJean Severud can sum up her former Watch Hill home’s appeal in a single word.

“Hideous.”

That’s why when it came time to demolish the 1960s ranch home and build new, the only part of the old home that Severud and her husband Bob saved was the basement.

From the gracious circular gravel drive that leads from the street to the New England shingle style house, to the soaring two-story tall ceiling in one of the home’s first floor hallways, the approximately 4,000 square-foot home that rose from that simple ranch foundation bares no resemblance to its innocuous predecessor.

Imagine that the computer can determine how to cut the pieces from a sheet of plywood in a configuration that will minimize waste and… OK, OK, you’re way ahead of us now, so we’ll get to the point. There is such a device, and Yankee Remodeler of New London has one.

“This software can do anything under the sun,” says Mike Mahoney, shop supervisor.

Handicap- access features critical for many homeowners

John and Vivian Gregor of Niantic decided to have John’s mother, Eleanor, come from the Cleveland area to be with them. John’s sister, Mary Ann, would relocate in Connecticut as well. To accommodate them, John and Vivian remodeled the house and put in wheelchair accessibility.

It was a big job. There was the designer and there were the remodeling crew, sanitation crew, landscapers and pavers. There were the Gregors’ children. There weer dogs and cats. People coming and going every which way, a cast of dozens. The little boys helped the pavers and laid block with the landscapers, hung out with them and ate lunch with them. Talk about a family projects. (more…)
