In the spirit thankfulness, we would like to express ours, by putting Jonathan Hahs in the Employee Spotlight!

Jonathan is a Project Manager in our commercial division.  He is responsible for overseeing jonathan-hahsa number of our larger commercial projects, from the initial walk through to the final check list. Most importantly, Jonathan makes sure his projects are completed on time, and accurately. One of his recently completed jobs was UAS headquarters in Paoli. When he is not on site or in the office Jonathan can be found working on projects around his home. He can also be found, family man that he is, vacationing at Myrtle beach with his wife and two daughters. Thank you for everything you do Jonathan!

We had the chance to visit one our projects out in DE, and we have to say, we’re impressed. This home started out as a small 2,525 square foot ranch and was transformed into a 6,200 square foot masterpiece. The only remaining pieces of the previous house are the family room chimney and foundation. You can read about the complete project here.

We started with the kitchen and dining room. The open floor plan and high ceilings gave us plenty of room to install tall windows, for lots of natural light. The spacious kitchen has ample counter space with all white cabinetry, and a gorgeous marble back splash.

The kitchen is accented with purple pendent lights, which connects us to the dining room. The beautiful dark colors of the cabinetry play off the white marble dining room table (sensing a theme here?). To add in a pop of color, the home owner chose a bright magenta for their chairs.

Attached to all of this is the simple family room, with an all new fire place mantle.

The master bathroom construction included a built in marble tub, his and hers sinks, and a glass enclosed shower with jets.

Finally, the backyard! The home owners created perfect space for entertaining with a beautiful flagstone porch, custom stone table, and fire pit.

amy-delmonteWith her work anniversary coming up on October 28th, we figure who better to throw under the employee spotlight than Amy Del Monte!

Before coming to work with us, Amy was a hairdresser in Broomall. Now she wears many different hats in our company from accounting and billing to managing HR.

Much like her job, Amy’s free time activities have a wide range, she enjoys: reading, tennis, Frisbee, and recently discovered that she loves yoga thanks to Beloved Yoga Studio, in Newtown Square. She also enjoys spending time with her son and grabbing lunch with her best friend, her mom.  Thank you for all the hard work and long hours you put in to keep us all sane at Gardner/Fox, we appreciate everything you do!
