Hey all, I've been losing grip as school has once again overwhelmed me and I've seriously been in lack of time with the upcoming grading season coming to a close. However I'd like to remind you that I'm still here and will be posting more in the future.

But all I've got for you today sadly is our company shirt. That will have to do for now!

EDIT: Don't try to call that number ;)

Spensieri Building Co.

Hello Blog!

Sorry for my un-noted absence for the past, wow, almost week and a half. I feel like I let you guys down without a good story. School work has really been getting to me. It's nearly unbearable, and with upcoming winter sports I'll have even less time at this. I'll try my best to keep this up!

Just a little short snippet...since it is, after all, 3 AM.

Spensieri Building Company was the first business opened by the Spensieri family on the North American Continent. Owned by 4 New York brothers, they opened shop in a 2 story building with a large lot just off of Northern Boulevard in Woodside, Queens. Originally formed as a joint company, there were two separate but equally important units within the company.

The first was the real money maker. The upstairs of the building was converted into multiple offices, with all the latest 60's-70's building fashions, including speaker systems! (Hehe,  there was one control box in an office.) This 2nd story would be the ground base for a construction/restoration business. Clients would have lunch with the brothers in the Kitchen area, where they could survey things like kitchen appliances, bricks, and paint colors. Infact, the brothers were witty enough to put a different cabinet door on each of the kitchen's cabinets, for their potential clients to pick a door for their kitchen style!

The 2nd was the more stable of the businesses. Based on the first floor (And the basement to an extent), clients would enter and purchase Masonry supply, from brick to mortar, cement to tools, you name it, they probably had it. If you couldn't purchase it in the shop, like a pallet of bricks, you would take a order out to the men in the lot, whom operated the machines to load the tools/supplies into trucks and vans. Supplies, like Gravel and Sand could be sold by the bedful or the bag. Others, like bricks, were counted in stacks of pallets and rows.

Combined, the two businesses were quite profitable for that time period. The families prospered and they enjoyed the new enterprise they were establishing in the states.

I will attempt to get pictures for the place. More to come soon!

New Look!

Hey guys, what's going on? Sorry for the delayed post, I haven't been really able to post as much recently as I just took a couple test in school. Studying tends to overwhelm me, especially at night.

I just wanted to post a quick notice to people who haven't seen the new look on the site, check it out! It's based off another HTML I found elsewhere with many tweaks here and there, links added and all good to go. I hope you guys like it!

Hopefully within the next coming days I can post more. I should be off of school for the rest of the week starting at 12pm tomorrow. (Yay!)
