REMY Awards for RARE!

REMY Awards for RARE!
Sheila @ 5:52 pm

All the hard work has paid off.  From the initial design consultation through to the final photographs, this Country Club Heights remodel project has been a gem.  Our team of dedicated employees worked passionately to pursue our company philosophy that “our clients’ satisfaction is our best long term investment.”

“REMY…Remodel of the Year…Local Remodeling Projects Honored By NARI
Twenty three remodeling projects completed by NARI professionals were recognized as 2010 REMY winners.  Projects, completed in homes throughout the metropolitan area, represent some of the highest quality projects in Kansas City. The NARI REMY Awards is held annually to honor contractors for their craftsmanship, professionalism and their commitment to excellence in remodeling.

Entries for the 2010 program were judged on a 100-point system that included project overview, before and after photos, budget considerations, overall aesthetic appeal and communication with the homeowner. Winners had to score at least 85 points. All Star Awards were presented to those entries that achieved 94 or more points. Each entry included a homeowner survey that was worth 15 points. Homeowners judged the remodeling contractor in three areas—completion of contract, communication and finished product. Remodeling contractors from the Idaho NARI chapter judged the entries this year.” NARI Kansas City

This project will also be featured in the annual Remodeled Homes Tour the last weekend in April.  We look forward to seeing all of you then.  Enjoy the photos below.

We will be at the American Royal this weekend Feb 11-13 at the Remodel Homes Show.  come see us in our new booth #1217.

Our Fabulous Finish in Country Club Heights!

November 17, 2010

Our Fabulous Finish in Country Club Heights!
Sheila @ 12:43 pm

Can you believe RARE Construction, Inc. began this almost “Whole House Remodel” in August and now, before Thanksgiving, our homeowners are moving in?  The Kitchen and Master Bath remodels turned out so well, we have decided to enter them in our local NARI Chapter Remodel of the Year contest.  We have put countless hours in pulling together the before and after photos, floor plans and completing the write up of the job specifics.  We will let you know in January after the awards presentation how we fared.

You ask, “What all have you accomplished?”  Beyond, what was has been discussed in our previous posts we have completed several other projects.

The old deck, which had many rotten wood planks, has gotten a new layout.  The old deck only existed outside the French doors.  With our new back entry location, the homeowners chose to expand the deck to connect the two areas.  This new larger deck will work great for family time and entertaining.

A new Laundry Room is concealed in the Mud Room.  This new multi-purpose space used to be a small Breakfast Room/Butler’s Pantry that connected the Dining Room to the Kitchen.  With the Kitchen and Dining room now open, we enclosed one of the doorways and adjusted the placement and height of the other so that the laundry area could be moved up from the basement.  The new front loading washer and dryer have a useful granite, folding surface above and additional storage within a wall cabinet and open shelves over that.

When we re-routed the basement stairs, it required us to build new structures to support them.  These new basement walls created an alcove for the clients to use as a workbench.  We were also able to adjust the placement of the hot water heater and re-route some HVAC Ducting to make the space function better for storage and wood working projects.

Additionally, the enclosed stairs to the second floor allowed us to open up the space in the bedroom above.  This wonderful, large, open room will now work great for their daughter to grow up in.

We have accomplished, “everything and a bag of chips.”  This new home, for our clients, will definitely have a short “honey do” list.

Enjoy some of our “After Photos” below.
