I realize it is not Thanksgiving but, as I was thinking about what remodeling related tid-bit I should share I found my thoughts drifting to the many things that are going well in Blackdog. We are in a point in time where we have a bunch of great clients who are fun to work with and who seem to get what we aspire to be about(it is an ongoing evolution). We also have been able to create a great team here. All our people from our Talented designers to our skilled field/production team to our ever vigilant administrative team are pros in there area of expertise. They work hard to deliver a great experience and do it in a way we can all take pride.
The reason I wanted to share this is because at Blackdog, not unlike most companies, we tend to get bogged down in the things that don't go well. The window that was mis-ordered or the counter that cracked during installation takes up a lot more space in our heads than the 50 windows that came in right and 15 counters that looked fantastic and went in on time. Such is the price of caring and wanting to always be better at what we do. It is a price we pay willingly but, it is also important to be able to take a step back and be thankful for those clients who entrust us with their homes and those team members who deliver on our promises.
