Ride to Give to benefit Callie TrueloveThis month, Construction Resources’ Builders Floor Covering & Tile will have the honor of sponsoring one of Sunshine on a Ranney Day’s latest projects. The mission of the non-profit is to create safe, fun and uplifting dream-room makeovers for children with long-term illnesses. The organization accepts referrals from local hospitals and children’s health organizations for children in the greater Atlanta area. Builders Floor Covering & Tile will be contributing to the project by installing flooring into a made-over home for the deserving Callie Truelove.

Callie Truelove is a vibrant ten-year-old girl who has been burdened by Williams Syndrome since birth. After an MRI scare this March, Callie was rushed to have emergency heart surgery. Almost two years ago, a family friend who was a contractor started building the Truelove family a garage and a room above it for Callie’s therapy and safe room, but then left it unfinished, taking the family’s money in the process. When Sunshine on a Ranney Day heard about this, they decided to step in and finish off the family’s garage and give Callie the therapy room she needs. Read More→

Sunshine on a Ranney Day BathroomRecently, Construction Resources had the privilege to team up with Sunshine on a Ranney Day, a non-profit that creates dream room makeovers for children with long term illnesses, to help with recipients Tashawn “Ta” and sister Alissa’s bedrooms. The company’s Atlanta Kitchen donated Cambria countertops for the children’s newly renovated bathrooms.

This brother and sister were adopted into their current family through the foster system. Eight- year-old Ta was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and a seizure disorder at a young age. Ta uses a wheelchair to maneuver around and enjoys playing wheelchair sports and swimming. Ta’s sister Alissa has severe acid reflux disease and digestive disorders. The children’s mother Ali is a social worker who is passionate about making children’s dreams come true, making them the the perfect family for a Ranney Day makeover.

The makeover was revealed on June 21, 2014 and featured new additions including laminate flooring to increase accessibility of Ta’s wheelchair, an electric chairlift from the garage to the main living area and a roll-in shower. Atlanta Kitchen’s Cambria countertops in Bellingham coloring complements the greens and neutrals featured in the bathroom decor. The strength of the quartz will offer the family durability and low maintenance upkeep.

“We loved having the opportunity to work with an organization as incredible as Sunshine on a Ranney Day,” explained Sonny Hires, co-owner of Construction Resources. “We hope that our contributions helped make a difference in the life of this deserving family.”

The family was more than ecstatic when they were finally able to see their new home. To learn more about Ta and Alissa’s story and to see pictures of the makeover, click here. To browse Cambria countertops and the other products that Construction Resources has to offer, visit www.crhomeusa.com.

Atlanta Symphony ShowhouseOne of the most recognized historic homes in Atlanta is now more modern than ever. Originally designed in the Italian Baroque style by architects Neel Reid, Hal Hentz and Philip Shutze, “The Pink Palace,” on West Paces Ferry Road recently underwent a huge transformation thanks to being the Atlanta Symphony Associates’ 2014 Decorators’ Show House and Gardens. Construction Resources’ Atlanta Glass & Mirror helped during this renovation by installing specialty bath products in the home’s pool house and master bath.

“We were honored to be selected as one of the elite companies to participate in the event,” explained Joseph Horne of Atlanta Glass & Mirror. “It’s great to see our products in such a charming and historic home. Knowing that the proceeds from this event help fund the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s education and community engagement programs is also very rewarding. We can’t wait to help out with the event in the future!”

“The Pink Palace” was on display from April 26 to May 18. Attendees were able to explore the home’s lavish interior and gardens, which included Atlanta Glass & Mirror’s frameless shower shield in the pool house and large double entry shower enclosure with notched panel around the tub in the master bath.

As a previous 1979 and 2003 show house, “The Pink Palace” is a mixture of new technology and original tapestries from the early 20th century. The home is even considered a “green” house with an innovative geo-thermal heating and cooling system.
