We hope these times find you and yours healthy and treasuring those moments of reason when ever possible. The last few weeks have been daunting, frustrating, scary, and confusing for us — as we assume it also has been for many of you. As with most every individual and every business around the world, our personal and professional lives are adjusting on an hourly or daily basis to this COVID-19 temporary existence.
Our office staff started working remotely early in March while our field staff took measurers to ensure safety at our occupied-home projects until Washington State Governor Jay Inslee’s Stay Home – Stay Healthy Order was placed. For home remodeling, the Order notes that “In general, commercial and residential construction is not authorized under the proclamation because construction is not considered to be an essential activity.” He makes exceptions for emergency issues – erupting plumbing, broken heat, unintentional holes in the exterior, structural concerns, or other non-elective and immediately necessary home repairs. As such, on March 25th, we shuttered our current projects.
The MHC Team is patiently waiting (along with our entire WA State community) to understand exactly when we will go back to work and if there will be any restrictions with how we can work. We wish our lives, our clients lives, and the lives of everyone everywhere were easier right now; we are also super grateful to be able to take this break for the larger good..
Doug and I feel confident in the foundation of Mighty House surviving these unusual times. We have always and continue to move our company forward thoughtfully and conservatively and are engaging every avenue possible to best support our staff. Our goal is to pick up where we left off just as soon as it is safe and allowed.
In the meantime, Doug and I along with support staff are moving forward on prospective projects. We are also available to support you with your home ideas and future needs (as best possible given the physical distance) and are available by phone, email, and video meetups.
in health and community,
Laura and Doug
