Friday, June 14th: Hello and TGIF! 

Lots happening around the Twin Cities this weekend to check out — looks like a beautiful weather weekend as well! The Stone Arch Festival is this weekend, Fri-Sun in Minneapolis along Main St. in Minneapolis and not far from there, Boom Island Festival is Sat-Sun. If you’re looking to cheer on the Twinkies, they’ve got a home- game stretch through next Wednesday and they are crushing it!

The crew is just about wrapped, albeit a few remaining decks and a walk through and touch ups on the 3rd and 4th buildings. It has been our pleasure working with and for you! 

Have a great weekend!

Thursday, June 13th: Greetings!

The crew is prepping and painting in the entry areas as well as painting trim. They’ll finish up in the next day or two—the decks are the last few items to be painted. Thanks!

Monday, May 20th: Good morning residents of Waycliffe! We hope you all had a great weekend!

In honor of last night’s final Game of Thrones episode and the unfortunate weather we’re having here in MN, this meme is pretty perfect for today.

One can only hope this is the last ‘cold spell.’

With the temperatures dipping lower than ‘usual,’ we’ve postponed our start date at Waycliffe. There also seems to be some wet weather upon us as well this week. We’ll keep you updated with our impending arrival — we just want to make sure the conditions are favorable and in line with our application methods and procedures. Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding!

Friday, May 17th: Good afternoon and TGIF!

The crew is taking care of the 435/665 Building today with pressure washing the exterior. The plan is to return on Monday to begin the prepping and painting of the 473/483 Building. We’ll let you know via the blog if the impending weekend rain will affect our start— thanks so much and have a great weekend!

Tuesday, May 14th: Good afternoon and welcome to your project blog for the 2018 Painting Project at Waycliffe I in Wayzata! 

We are excited to be back onsite and prepping and painting four of your buildings. We’ll begin on Thursday, 5/16 with pressure washing the 473/483 Building. On Friday we will pressure wash the 435/665 Building.

For pressure washing, we kindly ask that you please remove all personal items from your deck for the pressure washing and small items from the outside of your home to allow for safe an unobstructed access while washing. Once the pressure washing is complete, you make return the contents to your deck. 

We’ll then return on Monday, 5/20 to begin prepping and painting on your Building (473/483) and we anticipate 4-6 working days to complete your building. We’ll be updating the ‘Projected Finishing Schedule’ above as we know more on completion times or as weather may affect our schedule. 

Please continue to check here on the blog for project updates, progress photos, and any other pertinent info regarding your project.

Thank you again for having us back onsite and we’ll see you on Thursday!
