Sunshine on a Ranney Day's Austin and HannahTo many around Georgia, Saturday, Nov. 1 was just a regular day, and a cold one at that. But, for two special kids and their families in Cumming, their lives were full of warmth and happiness as Sunshine on a Ranney Day revealed their home’s makeover. Construction Resources is honored to have had a hand in the project, donating granite vanity tops and sinks for Hannah and Austin’s accessible bathroom.

Hannah and Austin are a very unique brother and sister. In 2009, at the age of five, Hannah was diagnosed with a rare neuromuscular disorder called Friedreich’s Ataxia. This life-altering disorder causes muscle weakness and loss of coordination in the arms and legs requiring wheel chair utilization, vision and hearing impairments, slurred speech, diabetes, aggressive scoliosis and a life threatening heart disease called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Now, in her preteen years, Hannah is in a wheel chair and wears a back brace.

This horrific disease is genetic; however, when Austin was younger, he had not shown any signs and testing was delayed. That all changed three years later when Austin was playing soccer and his parents noticed the familiar struggle for him to manage his own feet. Shortly after, Hannah’s brother was diagnosed with the same disease.

Sunshine on a Ranney Day, a non-profit organization based in Atlanta dedicated to creating dream room makeovers for children with long-term illnesses, heard about the siblings and decided to renovate spaces in Hannah and Austin’s current home. Renovations included making the home wheel-chair accessible by adding a ramp, widening doorways, installing appropriate hardwood flooring and more. The Azul Platino granite vanity tops and Chemcore Lotus sinks from Construction Resources were even installed at lower level, allowing Hannah and Austin to have easy access.

Today, Hannah and Austin have a space where they can feel safe, comfortable and relaxed. To find out more about Hannah and Austin’s story, visit For more information about Construction Resources, visit

Cambria CollybrookeConstruction Resources is proud to announce the renovation of the Cambria Gallery in Alpharetta, Georgia. Set to reopen in late November, this gallery will display vignettes with selective Cambria countertops. The gallery will host many Cambria designs from their Waterstone, Coastal, Desert and Marble Collections.

The Waterstone Collection brings together dynamic designs inspired by the stormy relationship between sea and shore. Featured in the Waterstone Collection, the Berwyn is a beautiful stone with swirls of whites, ivories and creams with subtle gray veins and delicate shimmers of gold and silver. The Hollinsbrook design will make a bold statement to any room. The black, chestnut, gray and white colors intertwine to create the look of water tumbling over rocks. For a subtle pop, the Nevern provides a striking contrast of creamy taupes and browns with wisps of berry and a silver shimmer that flows beautifully together. Read More→

Recently, team members from Construction Resources traveled to Minnesota for a two day event at Cambria University. Cambria UniversityThey had a great time and learned more about the products and services that Cambria has to offer.

Comprised of facility tours and classes, the team was treated to tours of the manufacturing plant in La Seur, the fabrication facility in Belle Plaine and the New Sweden Dairy. Students learned about the Davis family, the founders of Cambria, and their history in the food ingredient and cheese industry where strict FDA standards for food transferred into a successful quartz countertop business.

The Davis’ Welsh heritage and the love of the Cambria Mountains led to the naming of Cambria, and UK cities and towns are used as names and inspirations for new Cambria designs. Read More→

HomeAid AtlantaConstruction Resources, Inc. is honored to announce that it will once again be partnering with HomeAid Atlanta to aid in the construction of Rainbow Village. The company’s Atlanta Glass & Mirror, Inc. will be donating vanity mirrors, wire shelving and bath hardware; Atlanta Marble Mfg., Inc. will be installing cultured marble vanity tops for the project; Atlanta Kitchen, Inc. will be supplying Corian kitchen tops and Builders Floor Covering & Tile will be doing the flooring.

The six-unit apartment building will add 36 beds for families in need. Each apartment will include three bedrooms, kitchen, living room and two bathrooms.

Most of the residents at Rainbow Village are women who have fled lives full of domestic violence and poverty. While staying at Rainbow Village, residents can find refuge, recover and learn how to rebuild their lives with support from a community-based family surrounding them.

Construction is set to begin in October as part of Phase III of Rainbow Village’s “Building strong communities, one family at a time.” Once completed, the campus will have 30 family “villages” with a community center and family service center.
