A Growing Town Means Growing Inspiration

Yogi Bera famously said, “Nostalgia just ain’t what it used to be.” In a small town it’s easy to get wrapped up in the gold glow of how things were and lose sight of how things are shaping up to be. With the amount of growth Sanborn County has experienced in these last few years, folks are giving a second look to all kinds of traditions and habits that have been with the county since it started. Some inconveniences were assumed to be part of life because there simply was not a better option when the first version was set in motion. Take our public transportation for example. There has never been a need for more than 2 buses in town because Frank and his twin brother Hank drove the North/South and East/West buses respectively on such a consistent schedule there was no need for backup. Now our towns traffic is getting so backed up we are opening a carpool lane to help encourage ride sharing and decrease congestion. Infrastructure at the city level isn’t the only thing that folks are re-imagining.

Just about every home in town was built by the same developer when the county was first incorporated. Now that 1940’s style wood-on-wood paneling is starting to wear and folks are remodeling their homes left and right.  Bulky pine cabinets and ranch-style interior trim are being replaced with wood-grain, tile flooring and Carrera marble counter tops. Bathrooms and kitchens that previously shared the same history of the town in their worn wood and distressed years are being redesigned into unique and modern statements. Creaks and cracks were simply a symptom of a town that did not have time to care about the layout of a living space. Inspiration is now striking these forgotten dwellings and delivering a stunning show of form and function.

There are some things that should not be left with a bygone era: craftsmanship, longevity, and service. Fortunately the new remodeling contractor that moved into town shares these same values with the foremen before him.

There is a profound impact that a bathroom or kitchen remodel has on a home. It’s takes the hand of a truly talented remodeling contractor to elevate the warmth and tradition of an old house into the timeless elegance of a long-standing home. Nostalgia makes for excellent stories but it has a tendency to weigh too heavily on the potential for progress. To live is to grow and it takes an inspired eye to add progress to history like the rings in a tree. Give Inspired Remodels a call when the itch for inspiration overcomes your resignation to reminiscence.

Take a Seat

You know that feeling when you’re at a barbecue and the food is finally ready so you grab a plate, pile it high and search for a place to sit – only to find the cramped house and patio have 4 chairs and a couple stairs between them? Nothing like cutting a steak with 1 hand as other guests squeeze past you to the cooler. Unfortunately many business owners feel the same way. After spending months or years building something big enough to hire employees, those first team members start to file in, only to find some dilapidated card tables and kitchen chairs for the entire work day. Today’s workforce is presented lavish comforts compared to previous generations. The layout and design of modern work-spaces is a huge point of interest in burgeoning markets.

Creative office design is a hot new topic where employers are challenged to keep talent on their team. Gone are the days of grey cubicles and hard backless stools. In today’s office you’re most likely to find a sit to stand adjustable work space with a multi-dimensional adjustable executive mesh chair. It makes sense that a work space affects the quality of work delivered. This is the guiding principle behind offices like Facebook and Google that set talent retention alongside profit as business priorities.

What’s the most exciting part of this comfort revolution? The winnings for small towns like Sanborn County. In our little city that’s growing like a weed with new businesses, everyone has to find a place to sit. Companies are all clamoring over one another for top talent and the best way to keep a new employee in a seat is to ensure she is comfortable. That’s where companies like Creative Office Design come in. Creative Office Design specializes in turning the office environment into something of a power plant – optimally efficient by design. That starts with elegant and ergonomic office furniture. Conference rooms, lobbies, communal spaces, and executive suites play different roles in the corporate drama and require different furnishings to match the need. Creative Office Design has furnishings to meet the need and budget of any business. Now before you start shopping down at Jimbo’s boot, jerky and furniture emporium to find a better deal, consider that Creative Office Design has a constantly updating inventory of pre-owned office furniture and used cubicles for sale at top quality and bottom dollar. No it doesn’t come in a package deal with a new set of lawnmower blades but small towns have to adapt with the times the same as any.

The moral of the story is that we are about to get a whole lot more supported and a whole lot more productive around here in Sanborn. Never underestimate the power of posture with your project production. The way you work affects the way you live if you work for a living. Might as well work with some ergonomic intention. On that note, this blogger needs to go roll out some spine cramps and take a power nap.
