Willow Creek Apartments – Plymouth

Project Complete

Greetings and welcome to your project blog for the painting project at Willow Creek in Plymouth. We are excited to be onsite with you!

Tuesday, November 6th: Good afternoon! 

We can’t believe it’s already November – it will be December and the holidays before we know it! 

The crew has wrapped their painting in the hallways and lobby. The only area remaining is the leasing office and we are coordinating schedules and trades for that work to be completed, likely mid next week. Thanks! 

Monday, October 22nd: Good afternoon! 

We hope you all had a great weekend! We are loving this continued clear and sunny weather! 

The crew is currently completing their touch ups and will continue over the next day or two. 

Thursday, October 18th: Good afternoon! 

The crew is continuing to clean up in the lobby area and blue tape was placed throughout the south corridor. Please leave the tape as it indicates to our crew where there are touch ups that need to be resolved. Thanks!

Monday, October 15th: Hello and happy Monday!

After a chilly and shockingly snowy wake up call yesterday morning, we are thrilled to see the sun today and resume our ‘fall’ programming! 

The crew is finishing up the entry lobby and then our site supervisor will be completing a walk through on the property to check on our workmanship in the next few days. Thanks!

Friday, October 12th: TGIF! 

We couldn’t be happier to see the sun as this week of rain has got our exterior crews stopped on their projects. Thankfully when you’re painting inside, you’ve always got the green light. 

The crew should be wrapping up the entry lobby and then the wallpaper is scheduled to go up early November. Our job supervisor is headed there shortly and I’ll post an update soon. Thanks!

Monday, October 8th: Good morning! We hope you all had a great weekend! 

The crew is onsite completing touch ups throughout. They’ll also soon tackle the front entry lobby area. Thanks!

Thursday, October 4th: Good afternoon! 

The crew has just about wrapped at Willow Creek. They have a few areas remaining and some touch ups as well- mainly in the leasing office. It has been our pleasure working with and for you the last few weeks and we hope you enjoy your newly painted alcoves and select common areas. Thanks! 

Tuesday, October 2nd: Hello and just like that it’s October! There sure is a crispness to the air and we like it! ‘Tis the season for apple orchards, all things pumpkin, Halloween costumes, and Hocus Pocus. Happy Fall ya’ll! 

The crew is on the home stretch at Willow Creek. They are painting in the front elevator lobby area, pool/fitness hallway, and business center. They’ll then move on to paint the entry lobby area. 

We’ll post some pictures as we get them from the crew. Thanks!

Friday, September 28th: Hello and TGIF! 

We had ourselves some Friday fun at the Roell Painting Office this afternoon – Painter Appreciation BBQ, complete with a Dunk Tank! 


Check out our Facebook Link for more of the action.

Wednesday, September 26th: Good afternoon!

The crew is prepping and painting on the 1st floor – prepping and patching walls, applying paint, and painting fire doors. They’ll then move to prepping and painting your amenity, lobby, and leasing areas. 

Lights on to make sure application is silky smooth!

Prep and clean up in progress.

Tuesday, September 25th: Hello and good afternoon!

Today is ‘One Hit Wonder Day‘- participate and take a walk down memory lane to relive briefly successful songs through the decades. Some of our favs are, Video Killed the Radio Star by The Buggles, Tubthumping by Chumbawamba, or fitting for today, Milli Vanilli’s Blame in on the Rain?!

Today the crew is applying the 2nd coat to the doors on the 3rd floor as well as the 2nd coat to the door alcoves on the 2nd floor. They are starting to prep and paint on the 1st floor.

Wednesday, September 19th: Good afternoon! 

At the least the rain won’t stop our interior crew! They’ve started the wallpaper removal in the fitness center and hallway. They’ve also started to skim coat and prep the walls with mud. The plan is for tomorrow to sand it all down and also begin painting.

Monday, September 17th: Good morning! 

The border battle was a game for the books, but not where either is excited over a win or defeated with a loss. Instead, the green and purple teams ended their first show down of this season in a tie. Missed kicks, defense misses, and penalties piloted the game in a flip flop of emotions. The teams will face each other again on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, in which I’m sure both teams will be all-in to get a W!

The crew is painting on the north section and working on patching the walls of the door alcoves.

The crew is continuing to paint your door alcoves in the north building – starting up on the 3rd floor. Thanks!

Wednesday, September 12th: Hello and good afternoon! 

The crew has made their way over to the north building and are starting patching and prepping on the 3rd floor. We’ll post some pictures soon- thank you!

Tuesday, September 11th: Good afternoon residents of Willow Creek! 

The crew has made their way down to the first floor of the south building. They are prepping areas for painting and also doing some touch ups and clean up on the door frames of the completed floors.
