Rebuilding Together Kansas City project completed
Rebuilding Together Kansas City took on a raised ranch home built in 1961 as a local project, which was completed in December 2018. The house was given to the non-profit by the City of Excelsior Springs to rehab and sell.
The home contains 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom on a 7,405 sq. ft. lot. The revitalization includes a fully remodeled bathroom and kitchen featuring granite counter tops, farmhouse sink, and new stainless steel appliances. The original hardwood floors were saved and have been beautifully refinished. Home renovation includes new HVAC, water heater, plumbing and electrical, as well as upgrades to the exterior and back yard.
Rebuilding Together, Inc. (RTI) is one of the largest volunteer organizations in the United States that is focused on transforming the homes and lives of low-income families, seniors, people living with disabilities, and veterans.
Advisory: Construction begins at Royal Hotel
Workers for the Royal Hotel redevelopment project have begun erecting safety fences for pedestrian traffic. Drivers should also be cautious when using Marietta and South streets for workers and equipment in the construction area as the exterior porch is removed and replaced.
