Home Remodel? Check out this rental that we’ve almost finished.

Hello there and good afternoon!

I bought this small house several months ago and every weekend I spend a few hours on it’s renovation.  Here’s a quick snapshot looking through the new huge front window:

You’d never be able to tell from this picture, but we raised the ceilings to 9′ from 8′ and maximized our look with new door openings and accenting colors.

The tile floor just needs to be grouted and then the finishing touches put on.  This little two bedroom place went from 100 year-old dump to updated and fashionable.  We started by ripping out all of the old plaster and lath, replacing all of the wiring to bring it up to code, installing new plumbing, heat and air-conditioning, then finishing with a new kitchen and granite countertops.

Why not add a little flare with a reclaimed wood wall?  Sure!  There it is on the left and you can see the living room really coming together.

So if you’ve been wondering why my blogging has slowed so much – take a look above.  The pictures don’t do it justice.  It’s not every day that you can see an entire remodel happen but at KC Key Solutions it’s what we do day in an day out.  The exciting part about it is that we see something new every day.  Looking to spice up that 100 year-old beauty that you’ve got?  Give us a call and we’ll be happy to take care of it for you!

Have a good night, Ryan

Welcome Casey to KC Key Solutions!

Hello there again, it’s a great Friday and I’m in the writing mood.

Casey started with us a couple of weeks ago and he’s doing great.  He’s managing some of our larger revolving maintenance accounts and he’s got the flair for customer service.  In fact, he’s even ridden along with me on a few jobs to see how a veteran handles his business 😉

So if you get a call from KC Key Solutions, you might hear from this young man.  It’s kind of fun to hear him say “Hi, this is Casey from KC Key”.  Say it out loud and you’ll notice a lot of “KC” going on there!

He’s made it through a couple of weeks…and he hasn’t quit yet.  Now let’s see how he does during our busy season, right?

Have a safe afternoon.  Ryan

Cabinets, of course!

Hello there!  Remember me?  It’s Ryan and KC Key and I admit it’s been a while.

Business has been…busy.  I know that I’ve been in this position before but truthfully we’ve been working 14 hour days and a few things just got pushed off.  Like blogging.   It’s always the fun stuff that goes first!

So we finished up a cabinet project for a customer today and it came out great.  We have a lot of new pictures to show you from the last couple of months but let’s start here and work our way back.

Monday we took the cabinets to our warehouse for painting.  Here’s Casey and Adam doing the heavy lifting from our trailer:

Then we got them sprayed with several coats of semi-gloss paint.  The finish came out fantastic!  This was a remodel and cabinet “match” to an existing kitchen layout.  We worked them into place, yes that’s me hiding behind the door:

And then the big reveal…the final product after we got both cabinets in with the crown molding and scribe.  they look like they have always been there!

If you’e got an eye for detail, you’ll notice that we ducted the wall heater register and rerouted it to the bottom of the pantry cabinet on the left.  It was a slick install and the customer didn’t lose her heat in the kitchen.  That’s always a plus 😉

So I’m going to try to get us back on track with a few new blogs each week and I’ve got a ton of tips and DIY stuff that will make you happy.  Need someone to help you with your next kitchen cabinet project?  Call us at KC Key Solutions.  913-686-6278 and we can take care of business for you.  In fact, we’ve got a huge cabinet project coming up.  We are building custom desks for a big client of ours and I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures!

Thanks, have a good weekend.  Ryan
