Hi there, Kingston readers! Been awhile since we’ve had time to update you. 😉 Our summer wound up being so crazy busy! We’re bursting with news. So, pull up a comfy chair, grab a lemonade & let’s get all caught up.
On July 29th, Team Kingston assembled to join the DC Metro Chapter of NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) for an “Uncorked” picnic event at Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg, VA. Most of Team Kingston was there. Shown in the photo to the left, L to R, are Mike Marek, our Director of Production; Austin Schmitt, Kingston’s owner & President; Sooz Wilson, Senior Designer & Moira Hall, Director of Operations. Sooz’s adorable son Osiris is on the right. (Not pictured are Suzanne Schmitt & Eva Hopkins, marketing coordinator & social media consultant.) The day was lovely & the site is breathtaking. If you’re looking for somewhere to have an event in the Northern Virginia area, we can’t say enough nice things about Stone Tower Winery & their staff. We recommend them highly.
But it’s not all wine-drinking & good times. Like summer itself, those times are fleeting! In between commuting to the many great neighborhoods we currently serve, Kingston became a certified dealer for the installation of Solar Innovations glass. What’s the big deal, you say, windows are windows..? Ah, you haven’t considered all the possibilities of dazzling natural sunlight in your home. Solar Innovations presents so many more different ways to make use of light, to be energy-efficient – to dramatically increase the overall beauty of your home. Stacking glass walls, retractable skylights, greenhouses, folding glass walls: Solar Innovations has it ALL. Give their website a good long look if excellent design gets you excited.
Moving forward with Solar Innovations makes Kingston Design Remodeling the exclusive representative for the company in our area. We’re so thrilled to bring dazzling options to DC Metro area homeowners that we didn’t have access to, just a couple of months ago. Mike, our director of production, has 15 years of experience installing sunrooms & conservatories in the DC Metro region. If you have a vision of glass & light for your home, you should really call Kingston ASAP & see what makes the collaboration with Solar Innovations so special.
One way that you know summer is coming to a close & fall is on its way are all the ads for back-to-school stuff. A few Halloween items are appearing on store shelves. Another sign of autumn is the fall edition Capital Home Show at the Dulles Expo center. An event jam-packed with great deals for home owners, the show is conveniently located on Willard Road, right off of Rt. 28, & runs September 25th – 27th. There’s a couple of decent places to eat in that neck of the woods, too – like Willard’s Bar-B-Q – so you can come to the Home Show & make a weekend afternoon of it. Tickets go for $10.00, but Moira at the Kingston office has a very limited supply of complimentary passes. Passes will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis, so if this sounds good to you, get in touch..!
Sounds like there’s a lot of good reasons to give Kingston a ring right now. You should. We’d love to hear from you. Let’s see if we can make your dreams of a more beautiful home, a reality.
Now..before summer’s all over..quick! One more trip to the beach! Pack up the sunscreen & the kids, & let’s go..! When you get back & you’re ready to think about your home – the holidays are gonna be here before you know it – get in touch. Remember, an initial consultation with Kingston is always free.
But for now, one more glass of lemonade..
