What's Happening in the Basement?

Loud noises and concrete cutting! We're in the middle of more basement construction work and want to share it with you!

Using our basement for storage space, restrooms, offices, and conference rooms means we need a drain tile system in place to keep things dry. 

Team U.S. Waterproofing is in the middle of the work now and we have a full photo story up on the blog

Collective Resource Compost: "This time of year, as we express gratitude for having more than enough to eat, we’re reminded of the Food Recovery Hierarchy that lays out ways to recover the resources in food. The graphic is located and explained on US EPA’s website and even translated into languages other than English. Because feeding hungry people is a priority, we offer a discount for our container-swap compost service to organizations that do that. Our customer Niles Township Food Pantry is a shining example because they both feed hungry people and compost what is no longer edible."

We're not making calls to Owners right now, but you may still reach out to us to invest.
