Thanksgiving Greetings from the Feinmann Design/Build Team

Happy Thanksgiving artThe Feinmann Design/Build team continues the tradition of Thanksgiving greetings to our clients, subscribers, business associates and staff. With Thanksgiving less than a week away, we are busy putting the finishing touches on clients’ kitchens so they’ll be ready for seasonal action. We are in the process of working with some new clients on planning their kitchen, bath and living space renovations. And, of course our lead carpenters are hammering away at projects in progress.

The team at Feinmann has much to be grateful for again this holiday season. We have received glowing testimonials and Houzz reviews from clients and we are deeply appreciative. We have been recognized with awards and press coverage for our work. This is the time of year when our thoughts turn gratefully to our wonderful clients, current and past.  Read more…

Preparing for a wonderful Thanksgiving and giving thanks…

Say ‘gobble, gobble’ if you love Thanksgiving! Not only is there an array of foods that we devour at this time of the year, many of us gather with friends and family to celebrate the day. We open our homes and kitchens to those we love and share our secret recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation, whether it is the sage dressing or creamed corn dish that no one can pass up. There is no better time to share our gratitude than Thanksgiving.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas – Remodeling Style

‘Twas two months before Christmas, when all through the house
Mrs Claus was all cranky so she complained to her spouse (Santa that is).
Though the stockings were hung and the elves were at work,
Mrs Claus thought St Nicholas was kinda a jerk.We all know that Santa runs a really tight ship,
Since he has to prepare for his long one night trip.
To pull off this monsterous task once a year, we all know the crew needs more than a great mood
They depend on the Mrs to come up with the food!So one day from the kitchen arose such a clatter,
The elves and ole Santa ran in to see what in heck was the matter.
While trying to cook in her mangy old kitchen,
Mrs Claus was a yellin – some might call it bitchin’.The counters were all sticky and laminate peeling,
The oven door falling off sent Mrs Claus to a reeling.
The cabinets all broken and sink faucet a dripping,
Mrs Clause in a tirade she started to ripping.

“Get out of my way” she proclaimed as she demolished the space,
“These things that are here must all be replaced.”
Finally Santa did get it he got his wives point,

He exclaimed to his reindeer “Let’s get out of this joint”.
He pulled on his coat and hat and his gloves,
To find a remodeler to build for his Love.
The kitchen she dreamed of and wanted the most,
The one that would make her the North Poles best host.
He called to his reindeer by name to each one “Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
Let’s get to the office of Feinmann right quick
A brand new remodel will sure do the trick!
I will never forget the sounds on the roof,
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I looked up from my desk and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.We all know the story about the man dressed in fur from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
But when he opened the bag that was flung on his back,
You can bet the surprise to see a full set of plans rolled up in that pack.
He described the dream kitchen right down to a tee,
And asked us to build it for the Mrs and he.
He said it is perfect and that he did know,
He was sure she would love it just like she loved snow.
Plans double checked and permits all pulled
Cabinets and fixtures all delivered in full
The project began we went straight to our work
We all kept our focus not a one he did sherk.
Now our job is complete and punch list all done,
The elves and the Big Man are due for some fun.
Mrs Claus will be cooking all her pies and her cakes
NOW, she will happily do whatever it takes!
Now Mrs Claus never leaves her new Feinmann kitchen,
We know we succeeded with the Great North Pole mission.
So if in the future you worry about Santa’s round belly,
Rest assured it will continue to shake like a bowlful of jelly
As we packed up our trucks, to our team we did whistle,
And away we all flew like a nuclear missile.
But we heard HER exclaim, ‘ere we left for the day,
”Happy Christmas to all, and put your dishes away!”
