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

Double doors. How about you just close that hole up in the side of the house Ryan?

Hello there and good afternoon!

Yes, we are at it again here at KC Key Solutions.  Need an appointment?  Set up a no-obligation appointment for a free estimate now!

We’ve been doing a lot of different projects for customers all over Kansas City, and we are just getting warmed up for the holiday season.  Typically winter is a slower period of construction companies like KC Key Solutions, but it appears that we are going to be busier than expected.  We’ve got 6 offices to build in a large warehouse, another house to paint, a basement to remodel, a door to install, some waterproofing to be done on a basement wall – plus some other big projects that are starting to fill our schedule.  It’s fantastic…thank you to all of our customers for the business.

Here’s a recent project on flip house that we finished; this house had somewhat of a
“bay” window, but we simply boxed it in, extended the cantilever floor and installed french doors.  BAM!

Here I am contemplating the situation, it’s a good thing it wasn’t raining:

Here’s the finished product from the outside:

Now it’s just time to add some steps, finish the trim, paint the house, and get it on the market.  Flip houses don’t do much for us until they are SOLD.  That’s how I feel about it anyway 😉

Have a great day, and remember we can make a mess at your house too if you’d like!  (We always sweep up!)

Take care, Ryan

 

 

We’re on the Map!

Hello there friends – this business requires long hours and and it’s one heck of a workout.  Yesterday we were in the middle of a house painting job and we are currently stopped due to bad weather.  The joys of mother nature!

So this has given me some time to work on the website and do a little magic for KC Key Solutions on the Internet.

Screen Shot 2016-04-26 at 10.06.09 AM.pngI’ve got our new location listed in Google Maps and have submitted to Apple Maps as well.  These are important for our customers that are looking for us on the Internet.  I’ve got a lot of experience with the Internet and these things take some time…

Need directions?  Check out Google Maps or just give us a call.  913-686-6278.  I’ll help you out.  Stay dry!

The night is still young, how about one more blog.

It’s Friday night, where else would I rather be?  Well, other than work I can think of a lot of places…however here I sit, working away finishing up for the night.  Dandra has fallen asleep on the couch in the customer waiting area; I won’t take a picture of her now but she brought me dinner which was a special treat.

I needed to run out to the car and I snapped this pic outside of our building a few minutes ago:

With the lights on, it’s starting to come together.  Our building is about 110 years old, and it’s the original “Bank of Spring Hill”.  Yes, there’s a vault still inside and we’re making it our “break room”, check it out.  Maybe it should be called our “break in room”?:

This place is old and has a lot of character.  But late at night I still get a little shiver when I go into the vault because I’m afraid some of the local “spirits” might lock me in there!  Maybe that’s just the childhood fear in me but it gets me out of the refrigerator quickly.  We locked the vault door into a permanent “open” position so I’m pretty safe 😉  Yes, there is a combination and it still works.  It’s a fantastic piece of early American craftsmanship in itself!

We will be having a grand opening soon and I will certainly send out some information to make sure that you’re invited too.  We’d love to see you here and have you check out our new space.  Come see our design room; you might just need us yet!

Have a good Friday night, stay safe – Dandra, time to wake up dear…

Well, I guess we are roofers too!

Hi there friends, this is my first blog here at KC Key.  I’ve been professionally blogging for over 8 years; and I’ve found that I really enjoy typing blogs and it in turn really helps my customers stay in touch with my business and industry news.

KC Key Solutions is a new business for me and it’s taking off better than expected.  After developing and building Mission Repair from 2008 until last month, it was time for me to make a change and get into a new project.  That’s why KC Key Solutions was born.

You might not have known this, even though you may know me…but I’ve got a background in construction and over the years while working with electronics I’ve continued to perform repairs, basement installations, painting, and other general handyman work.  I guess I’m not one to sit around and do nothing.

So we officially got a job installing a new roof on a large shed, and as of yesterday we were also roofers 😉  Roofing is not something that we particularly want to do, but it was actually fun and interesting and the completed project looks amazing.  Here’s a shot of the old roof coming off:

We are finishing the final clean up today so I’ll take a few more pictures as we progressed.  I didn’t think that I would need to invest in so much sunscreen (my arms are burnt!) but now I know I’m going to have to get the rest of my body tan before I hit the beach in June.  I don’t want to be “that guy” the the worst farmer’s tan in St. Lucia 😉

Ok, back to work – that roof isn’t going to finish itself.  Have a good day, Ryan
