Even while growing one of the regions premier law firms, Jeana Goosmann knows her vision and style for the interior and exterior of her office building could not have been fulfilled without the help of BlankenshipMeier Painting and Decorating and Spaces Interior Design.
Goosmann Law Firm is a full service law firm that has grown to more than 28 employees. Part of the growth plan was to purchase and renovate a historic building downtown to grow the GLF team. Initially the first floor was renovated, and more recently the second floor was renovated to accommodate new staff and provide more office and conference room space.
From the beginning, BlankenshipMeier has been part of the process. Jeana states, “BlankenshipMeier Painting has been with me from the start. From my very first office in a bank downtown, to renovating the Lerch Building on 5th Street. They have always been very professional and recommend what we need to create the end result I want for the firm.”
In Jeana’s first office she remembers the lobby was in need a fresh paint job as she made plans to open. She called her trusty friends at BlankenshipMeier to assist and they were able to make it happen over a weekend, painting all day and night, and allowed her open her doors with a freshened lobby on Monday.
Fast forward a few years and the same type of craftsmanship and attention to detail was once again the focus of their work while renovating the Lerch building.
“For our new office we worked together from color consultation to furniture selection and also partnered with Spaces Interior Design for finishes. You’d be amazed at how many different colors of white there are. John and his team were able to pick the best colors based on our taste and understanding of our desired end result of the space. I trusted their whole process and knew they would recommend the best color and type of paint for our project.”
Along with sharing the best recommendations for your business or home, BlankenshipMeier Painting staff will also share what not to do. Jeana was considering the option to paint the outside of the building and John shared his concerns with that decision and actually shared why he would recommend they not paint the exterior, which in the end Jeana did not do based on his recommendation.
“It saved us money to not paint the exterior. I trust John’s expertise and appreciate that no matter what it means for him financially, he will still offer us the best recommendation.”
One of the biggest details that was important to Jeana was the red door in the back. She loves red and it is a part of her firm’s brand. It took the crew a lot of work but in the end the door turned out perfect. It does require some extra work to keep it just right, but the GLF team loves their red door!
“I enjoy each project we do with John and his team at BlankenshipMeier Painting. They are trustworthy, reliable and professional. I have known and worked with John for many years now and would recommend his team for any project. They are great!”
