Choices make all the Difference!

Hey Cincinnati!😁

I think we have all been around long enough to know that sometimes understanding simple choices often make all the difference. This is very true in remodeling.

There has been a terrible labor shortage in our industry for a few years now. Manufacturers often bear this in mind as new building products are developed or refined. Many manufacturers realize that with a shortage of people entering the trades they will need to deliver products that are easier to install. Sometimes that makes a-lot of difference for our clients. We always try to invest your remodeling dollars as efficiently as possible, and look for ways to add value. One of the ways we try to do add value with decks is recommend products like this railing pictured above. The cost of this railing per linear foot is much more expensive than a traditional wood railing, however, when you factor in the labor savings your investment goes more into the product vs the labor. When you add in the other features (like a 25yr warranty) it becomes a great decision! Thanks for tuning in, we hope to help you with your project soon!

Quarantine Cozy!

It’s amazing what a renovation can bring to a family room. We were able to improve the feel of the space by adding recessed lighting, tiling over the old brick fireplace, putting the TV on a pull out mount and finishing up with built in cabinetry, paint and flooring. We call it quarantine cozy!

Seeing the Future!

Hey Cincinnati!

Happy Friday Eve! We all like it when a plan comes together right?! How about when you could see the plan before the construction ever starts?

Well, we are able to help you out. With each contracted project we do, we include design. We include shopping and selection time with one of our talented designers, and then as you pick things out, we are able to digitally map many of those exact selections into a 3D rendering of the project. So no more fear of how things will look and biting your nails hoping it will all turn out.

We’d enjoy helping you with your next project, and we can’t wait to hear from you!

Safety First!

We think safety pays for us all. Every month that we have no lost time accidents we like celebrate and do a raffle. The happy man in the photo is Shawn, one of our team leaders. We are so glad he won, because we all know that cooler means more camping adventures together. Though we didn’t think it through because this cooler locks and is grizzly bear “resistant”. Shawn loves adventure and will no doubt see if it holds up to that promise!

Congratulations Shawn!

But can you ask questions?

Good morning Cincinnati!

Another great day is starting to unfold here at BBC HQ and as we are in the very thick of Home Show season we get a-lot of questions. We really enjoy questions and we hope to always be helpful. One of the things that potential client say to us that they have had bad experiences with other contractors because they felt uncomfortable asking questions. Often, we hear people say that they thought that they would make the contractor angry with asking questions.

We certainly can’t know the dynamics of the situation, but we will go on record and say that if you are considering hiring someone that you don’t feel that you can communicate freely with, it may be best to hit the big red “Try Again!” button.

Who loves a good Podcast?

Over the last year, I’ve kind of fallen in love with listening to Podcasts of all kinds. I really enjoy listening to things that have to do with our industry.

I’m not sure if you will think it’s good or not, but I sure did have fun with one of our friends and vendors, Rick Wedding. Rick is a guy who I just have a ton of respect for and he is beginning to branch out into producing all kinds of content to help homeowners. We were able to do a podcast together. Check it out!

Who’s Ready?

We really enjoy this time of year…even if our feet don’t! We enjoy very much meeting our Cincinnati area neighbors and talking about your projects in person! It’s a great excuse to meet many new and interesting people and the best part is that we can all nerd out together!

So come down to the show, say hello, and let’s dream together a bit!

Old made used!

Hey Cincinnati!

We just wanted to share with you a bit about 2 of our favorite projects. Sometimes just getting a chance to be creative and have just the right thing on hand is such a rush! (Yes…we are building Nerds!).

We had the privilege of renovating an old farm home into a Bed and Breakfast in Northern Kentucky. The owner let us salvage several old beams and take them back to the shop. The beams were from the original construction of the home in the mid 1800’s. Then opportunity hit! One of our very next clients had amazing ideas and a great vision. They contracted with us for several bathroom renovations and we were able to integrate some of these beams into the work. We had a great time and we think it was a great team effort!
