Calacatta Cremino White MarbleConstruction Resources’ Atlanta Kitchen just stocked up on white marble countertops, and we are excited for their future installs. If you are thinking about white marble for your home or project, here is the run down on the material.

•    Calacatta Cremino features a soft, creamy white background and warm veining.
•    Calacatta Fine Vein features a white background with dark and light grey veins.
•    Calacatta Carrara features a creamy background with heavy light grey coloring.
•    Calacatta Ondulato features a white background with dark and thick grey veins.Bianco Venatino White Marble

2014 Dove ShootLast weekend was the perfect start to dove hunting season! Mitch and Sonny Hires, owners of Construction Resources, hosted their 31st annual dove shoot on Saturday, September 6.

Held at the Hires’ family farm in Good Hope, Georgia, the event started at 11:30 a.m. with a catered lunch. Then, from 1 to 6:30 p.m., attendees were able to practice their shooting skills in the fields.

The dove shoot was not all about sportsmanship; though, it was also about spreading the word about Alliance for Lung Cancer, an organization near and dear to Mitch and Sonny’s hearts since the passing of their father, Fred Hires, Sr.

Alliance for Lung Cancer is dedicated to saving lives and advancing research by empowering those living with and at risk for lung cancer. The organization conducts nationwide education campaigns about the disease, offers personalized support through dedicated staff members and advocates for increased lunch cancer research funding. To learn more or to make donations in Mitch and Sonny’s father’s name, visit www.alcase.org.

If you missed the event, meet Mitch, Sonny and the rest of the Construction Resources team at the Cambria Celebration on Thursday, September 25. You’ll be able to see the brand new Cambria designs and enjoy a delicious lunch from a variety of food trucks, snack on popsicles or poptails (made from tasty alcoholic beverages) from King of Pops and listen to music from live bands.
