NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE (Click on Photos to Enlarge)

Welcome to the winter 2002-2003 edition of our newsletter!

I would like to dedicate this edition to our friend and fellow contractor, Mike Dresser. Mike recently moved to Oceanside, CA, and left his carpentry business in Kansas City to start a new career. Mike and his wife, Gayla, lived in Kansas City for nearly 12 years. Gayla has used us on numerous occasions thorough the years as her baking experiments guinea pigs. They are avid KU basketball and Chiefs fans. Mike was originally from southern California, and served in the Army and Air Force in Vietnam. He worked with us as a sub-contractor on various landscape projects throughout our first seven years in business. He specialized in carpentry work, yet his skills allowed him to do almost everything. You could find him doing plumbing, electrical, dry wall, painting, setting tile, hanging light fixtures, etc. He assisted us with numerous projects, and he built several custom decks and arbors as per our designs.

His quality of work and construction exceeded my expectations and those of many of our clients. I was so pleased with his work that I hired him to build my own personal deck and fence, and also to finish my basement. I often joke that my house may be destroyed someday by a tornado, but that my deck will still be standing. Nate Helland, our Project Coordinator, just had his basement finished by Mike.

As I look back, I am amazed at the number of projects that he has completed for us and for our clients. Some of these projects include working for the following people…perhaps you are one of them:

• Dr. Steinbrecher - installed new water spigot on deck
• Mr. & Mrs. Ahrens - installed plumbing for an outdoor shower
• Dr. & Mrs. Murphy - installed large multi-level deck
• Mr. Clark & Mrs. Hubble - re-built deck and installed arbor
• Mr. & Mrs. Thornton - built hot tub stairs
• Mr. & Mrs. Marquardt - mounted landscape lighting transformers
• Mr. & Mrs. Henderson - repaired deck damage from a fallen tree
• Mr. & Mrs. White - rebuilt/repaired screened porch
• Mr. & Mrs. Rolofson - built TV cabinet
• Mr. & Mrs. Carter - various home repairs prior to moving into new home
• Mr. & Mrs. Dobbins - mounted landscape lighting transformers
• Mr. Richardson - mounted landscape lighting transformers

We will miss being able to rely on Mike's expertise and experience, and will continue to hope for his return to Kansas City. Nevertheless, we wish him well in his new endeavors. Please help me to salute Mike's hard work, diligence, ethics and especially his smile.

Thanks Mike, for all that you have done for us!

Sincerely, Troy, Jerry, Nate and Kristin
