The Vikings have done it; they’ve won the NFC North with their 34-7 win over the Bengals yesterday. They take on Green Bay in WI next Saturday and if they win, they’ll clinch a first-round playoff bye. There’s still a ways to go, but this win makes us one step closer to dare we say it… Superbowl 52 at US Bank Stadium!
The Canabury crew is tackling the remaining resident doors today. Thank you to all of the residents for having us onsite the last 6 weeks or so! It has been our pleasure sprucing up your community and we hope you enjoy the freshly painted common areas.

A: Wookieleaks : )

TIME Magazine has named it’s ‘2017 Person of the Year’ and they’ve selected the Silence Breakers, “the individuals who set off a national reckoning over the prevalance of sexual harassment.” The magazine bestowes the title upon an individual or group of people who the magazine’s editors believe have most influenced news and events of the past year, “for good or ill.” The #metoo hastag also emerged to unify those millions of people who have come forward with their stories. Check out the full article here.

Thursday, November 30th: This is it, don’t get scared now. Though, I don’t think December is quite as scary as Kevin McCallister taking on the ‘Wet Bandits’ in Home Alone. We just can’t believe December is right around the corner – where has the time gone? It looks like we’ll at least be able to ease into it with another 40, almost 50 degree day : )

Yesterday, there was a run-in with Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers riding the subway in NY post shoot around. They were in town to play the Knicks.

Thursday, November 9th: Good afternoon Canabury Square!
Last night the Country Music Awards put on their 51st Award Show. Hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisely were up to their usual antics, but refrained from any polical jokes and instead, conveyed the message of family and banding together. There were numerous great performances and also a major blip from the Entertainer of the Year, Garth Brooks… let’s just say our lips are sealed.
One of our crew is finishing up the ceiling repairs and spraying texture on the first floor and then tomorrow they’ll move up to the 2nd floor. Another crew is working to finish the hallway painting in Section 1. They’ll then move onto Section 2 and begin spraying the ceiling in that section.

Wednesday, November 8th: Greetings and Happy Hump Day! We’ve made it to mid-week!
Is anyone watching the Netflix craze ‘Stranger Things?’ Recently one of the young characters was sporting a Science Museum of Minnesota sweatshirt with a Brontosaurus featured on the front. It didn’t take long for the museum’s online shop to crash and for their in-store stock to be sold out. The Museum is excited to have TV characters that are interested in science and to put the Minnesota Science Museum on the map and they’re assuring that plenty of purple sweatshirts are being printed.
We’ve got one of our crews wrapping up the ceiling texture on the 1st floor today. There is another crew prepping and painting on the first floor in the North corridor – near the main lobby. They’re working on prep work, ceilings, woodwork, and walls. They are making their way East in that corridor.
Our crews are no ‘strangers’ to hallway painting projects.
Thorough prep work is key to a smooth and clean finish!
Tuesday, November 7th: Hello residents of Canabury Square! In case you missed the recent article– the Wall Street Journal recently named Minneapolis as one of the Top 10 Places to Travel in 2018. Though we may have been put on the map due to hosting the Superbowl come February, the article boasts our rising foodie scene with 13 James Beard 2017 Award finalists. Cheers to that, Minneapolis!
The crew at Canabury will be onsite after lunch today. They’ll be spraying texture on the areas where they completed ceiling repairs on the 1st floor. Pictures coming soon!
Monday, November 6th: Good afternoon and Happy Project Start Day!
We have two of our crew members off and running at Canabury Square. Today, we’re starting will ceiling repairs on the entire first floor of the Building.
Throughout the project, you can stay fully apprised of progress, pictures, scheduling, and any changes that may come up right here on the blog. And we’ll try and have some fun along the way, too!
Thanks again for having us and we’re looking forward to getting things going!

Monday, October 30th: Greetings residents of Canabury Square in Little Canada and welcome to the official blog for your interior painting project. We are thrilled to be onsite with you! Huge thanks to Natalie, your board of directors, and for all of your community members that were involved in selecting your color schemes! Also – special thanks to the design team at Sherwin Williams for presenting a fantastic, on-trend color scheme! The votes are in, and we are certainly excited to be part of the transformation!
The crew will get things rolling (literally) on November 6th and work will begin on the ground floor and we will be making our way up to the 3rd floor as the project progresses. The goal is to complete the project by Christmas, with work stoppages, of course, to accommodate the Thanksgiving holiday. Having completed countless hallway projects over the course of the last 17 years, we’ve developed a pretty darn good system, and many days after work has been completed for the day, outside of your fresh new paint job, you won’t even know we were there! OK, that might be a bit of a stretch but when we do these projects, we execute them in a way to minimize the disruption to you as residents.
Your unit doors ARE being painted as part of the project and to ensure consistent/completed finish, they will be painted in the open position, which will require participation from you! We will work with your onsite team to accommodate your schedules and you will have the opportunity to schedule a specific time that works best for you and your schedule to open your door for painting. Scheduling can be done right here on the blog, but for those of you that aren’t quite as web savvy, we intend to have a sign-up sheet posted at the office onsite.
Thanks for checking out the blog and we’ll see you on Monday! Have a great rest of the week!
