Column: Cheers to a new (remodeling) year


Commentary by Randy Sorrell and Bill Bernard

Finally, we have made it to 2021! Congratulations for your gushing volumes of endurance, perseverance, dedication, grace and gratitude exhibited. Let us never again dismiss what fortunate ZIP codes we live in, to be surrounded with caring and driven essential workers, family and friends that continued to make our worlds turn.

Adrenaline levels

Fortunately, those adrenaline-inspired levels of perseverance aren’t required for most interior remodeling and outdoor living space projects, but it does require hints of each. We discover most clients are adequately prepared and we have become uniquely skilled coaches guiding the process and managing expectations.

What to expect/art

Expect lots of hard working, dedicated groups of professionals coordinating their efforts to deliver a product we all hope will have a delightful impact on how you live. They care. Expect a little, or a lot, of dust and dirt scattered around in a highly orchestrated fashion. In fact, let’s call it art. Because it does require some degree of artist flair to manage the process, create the stunning material pallet desired, manage the material flow and get the project done — all according to code with proper PPE thrown in for excitement.

Perhaps patios/porches/landscapes and other exterior elements are less tiring than interior projects. Things are happening outside. Not in your kitchen or bathroom. But we love ‘em all.

Know that it is all worth it, however! And you will absolutely love your new (fill in the blank)!

We, our industry, in general, and us, specifically, celebrate you as you launch your 2021 dreams.

Happy trails 2020 and welcome 2021.
