Renovations: Artists at Work

Crescent Cove is so grateful to have a team of talented artists: sculptors, painters, and designers who are helping make Crescent Cove a truly special place.  Our team is hard at work, putting a grid on the main wall of the home that will transform into a very special piece.

You’ll have to wait to see the final product, but in the meantime, here is our team!

It is truly amazing to see the vision go from a sketch on a piece of paper to a 20 x 12 foot wall!

Renovations: A Transformation

So much has happened since our last post!  We are forever grateful to our team of contractors, managers, subcontractors and volunteers who are helping us transform this special place into a home away from home for kids and families.

Our team of Gardner Builders, Cushman Wakefield, and RSP Architects are managing the process of renovations and we are so thankful for their time, energy and expertise. A special thank you to Hanson Builders, who have graciously volunteered time and resources to bring a new look to the main section of the home (see pictures below!).

We look forward to hosting a week of grand opening events November 11-18.  Stay tuned for more information!
