The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) features Spring Creek Design in their National Newsletter & Blog.
Since 2012, Sandy and I have been assembling and hand delivering goody baskets to the neighbors around each of our new remodeling projects. It's our way to reach out and thank them in advance for their patience while we are completing their neighbor's project. We know that dust, noise and traffic comes with construction, so we feel it's important to say "please call us if there's a problem". Although we do everything we can to keep disruptions to a minimum, we want people to feel comfortable letting us know if there is an issue.
It's fun to load up our goody baskets filled with local Amish treats - Shoofly pie, cheese, fresh fruit, jams and jellies. We pile them up in our bright green Mini Cooper and then head out to make our deliveries. We enjoy chatting with folks and introducing ourselves. Seeing the surprised looks and genuine appreciation for the treats lets us know that we are standing out amongst the crowd! If you see us in your neighborhood, we might just be delivering YOU a basket.
