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

Signs of Foundation Failure:

Inside of the House

– Cracks in drywall

– Doors and windows that stick

– Cracks in floors and tile

– Misaligned doors and windows

Outside of the House

– Gaps around doors and windows

– Cracks in foundation

– Stair step cracks in brick walls

– Fascia board pulling away

– Chimneys tilting or pulling away

Garage

– Separation from door

– Walls rotating out

– Stair step cracks in brick walls

Basement of House

– Walls leaning in or out

– Cracks in the poured or block walls

– Water leakage at base of walls

There are many causes for these issues, but if you live in Kansas City you probably know by now that we’ve got some of the most expansive and unstable soil anywhere…and this is typically the root of the problem.

Soon we will be offering these services on our website…but I was too excited to wait.  I’ll be back soon!
