Caroline Sunshine on a Ranney Day Just like most teenage girls, Caroline loves shopping, make-up, cheerleading, going to the beach and Starbucks Frappuccinos. Born with a rare neuromuscular disease, Caroline has Arthogryposis along with other medical diagnoses that can make these simple tasks a challenge. Sunshine on a Ranney Day is back to create another fantastic room makeover for Caroline with the help of a few Construction Resources companies including Mohawk, Atlanta Kitchen and Builders Floor Covering and Tile.

Caroline relies on her family for assistance with daily activities; however, being a teenager means she also desires independence and privacy. Sunshine on a Ranney Day plans to make Caroline’s dream a reality by renovating her bedroom and her bathroom to accommodate her wheelchair.

For her new bedroom, Builder’s Floor Covering & Tile will be installing Mohawk’s SmartStrand Forever Clean Carpet in Crystal Stream. This luxurious gray carpet uses the most advanced fiber innovation for the highest level of beauty, comfort and performance available. With built-in Nanloc spill protection technology, cleanup is a breeze. To help make her bathroom more wheelchair-friendly, Atlanta Kitchen will be installing Cambria countertops at an appropriate height for Caroline. The Bellingham design will add elegance to Caroline’s bathroom with marble-like waves of dark grey and black swirls on a cream canvas. Read More→

Haley Carroll Atlanta Kitchen Haley Carroll joins Construction Resources as the new Design Consultant at the Design Center for Atlanta Kitchen, a Construction Resources company.

Haley is passionate about art and design, and as a Design Consultant, she works with clients to help them fulfill their visions for kitchen and bath renovations.  Whether a client is just updating a few products or creating an entirely new space, Haley enjoys seeing the designs and helping the products come together to personalize a room that meets the client’s vision.

“I enjoyed helping my parents when they were building their home. Seeing it all come together from the ground up was fun. In high school, I always loved art, but I played travel soccer so I never had time to really focus on art or design. When I decided I did not want to play soccer in college anymore, I looked at the ending of my soccer career as an opportunity to finally explore something that I was always passionate about,” says Haley.

The renovations for Bobby will include wider doorways and new flooring which will make the daily routine easier and facilitate the use of Bobby’s motorized wheelchair throughout the home. The renovation of two bedrooms will create a therapy suite large enough for medical equipment and a room with a sleeper sofa where one of his parents can rest without needing to leave his side.Bobby Sunshine on a Ranney Day
