It's a great day --- we are one step closer to the weekend, the high temperature is going to break the fifty degree mark, and the "Madness" has begun! It's that time of year folks, 68 teams have earned their entry into the tournament which starts today! Get your brackets completed before the 10 seed Gophers tip off at 11:15am (CT) versus the 7 seed Louisville Cardinals. By the time games are complete on Sunday, 16 teams will remain. Looking forward to showcasing Minneaplis as the Final Four comes to town Saturday, April 6th and then the Championship game on Monday, April 8th.
The crew is completing touch ups in the next day or two and then we'll be on our way! We just wanted to extend a huge thank you to the board, your manager, and all the residents for allowing us to refresh your space; it has been our pleasure working with and for you!
Have a great rest of the year!
Thursday, March 7th: Good afternoon residents of Bush Terrace!
The crews have wrapped in your hallways and stairwells and are now tackling the prep and painting of the common areas. Again, please be mindful of the wet paint when traversing through these areas.
Our supervisor Jesse was also onsite today and performed a walk thorugh of completed areas. He has marked areas needing some touch ups with blue tape. Please do not remove the tape, as the crews use this to see areas that need 'brushing up.' Thanks!
The Blue Tape Guy was here!
Wednesday, March 6th: Good morning!
We have some great news, despite some pending snow this weekend, the crews will be wrapping up your hallways and stairwells today!
The crews will be wrapping their painting in Buildings 7 & 8 today. We'll also begin in the common areas - laundry rooms, hallways, and lounge areas soon. Thanks!

Another day and the crew is back onsite in Buildings 7 & 8.

The Parade of Homes started this Saturday and will run through March 31st. The homes are open to tour on Thursdays through Sundays from 12pm - 6pm. We're honored to be a part of new construction home #122 in Plymouth with Jyland Construction Management. Roell Painting is responsible for all of the trim, wall, and ceiling painting throughout the home. Grab a guide book from any Holiday gas station and check out this beautiful home!
The crews are starting on the last two buildings today, #7 & 8. We'll begin again with prep work and then make our way through the hallways and stairwells. Mid-week, we'll begin prepping and painting in the common areas - laundry rooms, hallways and lounge areas. Thanks!

Friday, March 1st: Not only is it Friday, it's also the start of a new month!! We are so ready to welcome March and put the snow of February behind us... though it seems Mother Nature has a repeat agenda for March as well!
The crews are completing their work in the 5 & 6 Buildings today and then we'll return on Monday to begin prep and painting in the 7 & 8 Buildings. Have a great weekend!

Tuesday, February 19th: Greetings! The crews are underway at Bush Terrace and we are looking forward to sprucing up your hallway walls and stairwells.
All of our projects begin the same way -- with thorough prep. This ensures paint ends up where it is supposed to and not on any other surface. The crews have completed prep work in the stairwells and hallways of Buildings 1 & 2. They'll also be applying the first coat of paint in the hallways on the walls and then to the stairwell ceilings. Then the crew will be applying the 2nd coat in the hallways and the 1st coat ion the stairwell walls.
Prepping and covering in the stairwells.
It's all in the prep - paper, plastic, and tape to cover areas and prep for paint.
Friday, February 15th: Hello and welcome to your project blog!
For this winter's project we'll be prepping and painting in the hallways and stairwells of your eight buildings. The hallway painting includes the prep and painting of the walls, end windows, and entrance door frames. We will also be prepping and painting the stairwell of each building - including ceilings, walls, and railings in these areas. Lastly, we'll be painting in a few common areas - 3 laundry rooms, 2 lounge areas, common catwalk hallways on the main floor of each building and select "tan" doors/frames as directed by manager.
We'll be painting two buildings at a time, as indicated in the map and schedule above and we anticipate each set of buildings to take about 5-7 days to complete. Once the crews get started and can better gauge their pace we'll update the projected start dates to reflect that information.
Also, as we're completing your project there will of course be wet paint, so we please advise you to exercise caution when traversing the hallways and stairwells - thanks in advance for your cooperation!
Stay tuned here on the blog for frequent project updates, schedule changes if they come up, and progress photos. We hope you all have a great weekend and we're looking forward to getting started next week!
