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

It’s the busy season for construction.

Hello again my friends…there’s another reason that we’ve been so out of touch lately; it’s because we are admidst the busy season here at KC Key Solutions and we’ve been working 7 days a week to catch up! I decided early this morning that I needed to stop and get in the office to do a few “house cleaning” projects and to write a few blogs.  I like the “blogging” part of the business I need to do more of it.

Have you seen our trucks running around town?  Out fleet is growing and we are also NOW HIRING.  So if you’ve got a trade that you’re amazing at in the construction industry, give us a call at 913-686-6278 to set up an interview.  We need only amazing people to apply and there is a mandatory drug screening for all new hires.  We don’t do illegal drugs here, the construction site is no place for them, thank you for your understanding!

So we’ll be back out on the road here shortly and if you see us, be sure to give us a wave.  You’ll get a wave and a smile in return.  Until then, I’ll be headed back the the basement in Overland Park we’ve been working on in a few minutes.  These basements that we are working on are looking amazing!

Have a good morning, Ryan

Grand Opening at KC Key Solutions this Friday!

Good morning everyone!

I know that it’s been a little bit since I last blogged…that’s because we’ve been busy gearing up for our Grand Opening that is this FRIDAY right here at the KC Key Solutions office!

We are taking the afternoon off to spend a little time with our customers and friends in Spring Hill at noon – July 22, 2016.  This will mean some good BBQ and maybe even a fun surprise or two.

Take care, Ryan

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
