Route Map @ Coler Farms

Wednesday, October 25th: Good morning! It seems ‘that time of year’ is here with morning frosts and the need for warmer jackets. And dare we even mention the forecasted snow for tomorrow? 

Have no fear, your crew at Coler Farms are seasoned pros and will get the job completed. Yesterday, they began their touch up work and will continue today and wrap up the project early next week, if need be!

Finishing up misc. carpentry and touch ups.

Tuesday, October 17th: Good morning residents of Coler Farms. We hope you all had a great weekend and how about that Viking win?!

The crew is onsite today completing touch ups and will have a few more days as well. Thanks!

Thursday, October 12th: It’s official, the Timberwolves agreed to a multi-year contract extension with Andrew Wiggins. We can’t wait to see what Wiggins will continue to do for the Timberwolves over the next few seasons. Preseason is underway and the regular season will commence on 10/18 in San Antonio against The Spurs. 

With the sprinkling of rain we’ve had on/off today, we’ll pulled the crew from painting today. They’ll resume tomorrow and should wrap everything up by day’s end. Thanks! 

Tuesday, October 10th: Good afternoon Coler Farms! 

The crew is working to complete the carpentry and then will begin priming and painting the new areas. 

Friday, October 6th: TGIF!

Looks like there’s some rain in the forecast for this afternoon and then also tomorrow in the earlier part of the day. The crew is working to get as much completed before the rain rolls in this afternoon. Weather depending they’ll finish up the carpentry today or early next week.

Thursday, October 5th: The MN Lynx have done it again! They’ve won the WNBA Championship and this is their 4th title win in the last 7 years. The parade and celebrations are being held outside of Williams Area on the UMN campus in Minneapolis at 6:30pm tonight. 

The crew at Coler Farms is pushing through to complete the pillar replacement. We’re hopeful if the rain can hold off that they will finish up tomorrow. Thanks!

Wednesday, October 4th: Hello and Happy Wednesday! 

If we may borrow a line from Johnny Nash’s hit song, “I can see clearly now the rain is gone.” Quite literally, the clouds have cleared and we have a sunshiney day!

The crew is back onsite and in full force. We anticipate we’ll need a few more working days to complete the carpentry, so with no weather delays, we believe this to be by Saturday. Thanks!

Monday, October 2nd: Happy Monday and welcome to October. We hope you all had a great weekend!

With all of the rain last night, today, and forecasted for tomorrow the crew is delayed. We’ll let you know when we predict they’ll be back onsite. Thanks for your patience!

Friday, September 29th: TGIF! Lots happening around the Twin Cities this weekend and a major road closure as well- 35W will be closed from Friday at 10pm to Monday at 5am from Crosstown 62 to Downtown. Check into alternate routes if you’re headed into downtown this weekend for the Twins, Gopher, Wild or Vikings games or to watch the Marathon on Sunday. Along with lots of sporting events there are plenty of Fall-themed activities- the Renaissance Fair, Sever’s Corn Maze, or Valley Scare to name a few. The Parade of Homes is also running this weekend as well. 

The carpentry crew is keepin’ on @ Coler Farms with replacement and repairs. Thanks and we hope you have a great weekend! 

Thursday, September 28th: It’s a great day to be a Twins fan!! The MN Twins clinched the second wild-card spot last night when the Chicago White Sox beat the Los Angeles Angels. The players had quite an evening of celebrating in their club house complete with champagne showers and lots of smiles. The team will travel to play either the Yankees or the Red Sox on Tuesday!

Friday, September 22nd: TGIF and Happy First Day of Fall, although with the 90 degree heat wave, Minnesota clearly did not get the memo. Regardless, we can all enjoy the warmer weather today and this weekend! ‘Tis the season of The Renaissance Festival, Sever’s Corn Maze and various apple orchards and pumpkin patches throughout the metro area if you’re searching for weekend activities.

Tuesday, August 29th: Good morning residents of Coler Farms!

The crew is back onsite after a few rain days later last week and over the weekend. They were at another site completing some touchups yesterday. As of today, they’ve completed painting up to Building #6. Today, they’ll be painting on #7 and moving along the route. There has been quite a bit of carpentry that’s come up while prepping and painting. Thus, moving forward the crew will be only painting front door frames and garage door frames until we figure out the carpentry scope and our plan of attack. Thanks!

Your project consists of the prepping and finishing select areas, including: front door frames, entry pillars, garage door frames and patio divider wall caps. 

In preparation for our arrival, we ask that you please unlock your storm door so we have access to paint the door frame, thanks! This project will have minimal interference with your day-to-day routine and you can monitor project progress here on the blog as we’ll post several updates a week. 

We’re anticipating the entire project to take about 2-3 weeks, which may be affected by weather. We’ll keep you fully apprised here on the blog! Thanks we’ll see you in a week.
