Blue Moon Construction wrapped-up the kitchenette project on Friday. It’s more than we ever imagined! From start to finish, they just kept wanting to help. Always asking what else they could do for Ryan. Looking for ways to keep giving. John Ronay (owner, in center of photo on right) and his crew are amazing! I’m their biggest advocate.
Let me explain.
To free up space, Sue and I planned on moving a refrigerator into a closet space and taking another up to the garage (after we remove an old refrigerator to the trash). In passing, I mentioned this to John. Here’s the result of that:
- They hauled away our old, smelly, broken refrigerator from the garage. This not only saved us the work of doing it, but a $100 disposal fee and whatever it costs to have the freon removed.
- They moved one refrigerator up to the garage and another into the closet space.
- Then the amazing thing, they installed something akin to a “back bar”, complete with a granite counter top and cabinetry.
It didn’t stop there, either. They swapped out the sink in Ryan’s bathroom for a deeper and more functional one. I can practically take a bath in it! I know the dogs certainly can anyhow.
I bet you didn’t notice that I hadn’t even started talking about the kitchenette yet… Did you?
John wanted us to have a granite counter top, for its beauty, durability, and cleanliness. He put this on hardwood base cabinets and hung matching overhead cabinetry, complete with a built-in microwave oven! He chose an under-mount sink that is both eye-pleasing and 100% functional.
We had a dishwasher donated to us by a friend and co-worker of Sue. John arranged for plumbing and electrical crews to hook-up these connections. At the same time, he put in a garbage disposer.
Without fail (and in my observation), a company always adopts a culture that matches its leadership. It happens all the time. You can even see this with sports teams. For Blue moon Construction, this is compassion, intelligence, honesty, and excellence. I marveled at how they kept thanking me for allowing them to be a part of helping Ryan. I am touched. Deeply.
Amazing. Isn’t it? You also might notice the gifts on the counter top. They know some Redskins and had them get the team to sign a football and certain players to sign a hat and another ball. And, yes, that is a Keurig coffee machine (complete with assorted flavors) that they pitched in to get me! I’ve been buzzing around the house since…
Home for two days and catching up on things. The kitchen job is amazing, and who would have thought to get you a coffee machine to keep you buzzing around? How clever! Hope Ryan is prepared for that. Anyhow, glad things are going ok, and keep up the good work Ken and Sue. I know you are glad Kari is home!

Hello Ken, I’m awestruck too!! The amount of work this team did, and the deeply caring attitude with which they did it fills my soul with joy. The “before” and “after” pictures are great — to see the level of craftmanship and attention to detail is to see a company that excels at what it does.
Thank you to Blue Moon!!! We are all very grateful for your generosity and caring for the Diviney family!!
And thank you to all who continue to stand by Ryan, Ken, Kari and Sue — you are an inspiration to me!!
Ken, I hope you have a positive day with Ryan, and may you always know how much you and your family mean to all of us.
Love, prayers and still keeping the faith!
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. It’s so heart warming to see that there are still wonderful caring people in the world. Your kitchenette looks so great and I hope it helps you limit your steps in caring for Ryan. What a gift to have a company like this in your community.

B E A U T I F U L !!!!!
Once in a Blue Moon will we ever find a company like this one! Thank you, Blue Moon Construction — wishing you much work over the winter and in the future, and praying for your company’s success. Love the dog in the logo, and FYI, we have a Blue Dog Saloon here with the best cook who ever cooked! One of these days, Ken, we’ll take the Chick Magnet out to the Blue Dog (right after the Gaylord at National Harbor, that is!). Always thinking of Ryan’s future with much excitement and hope. Love
I am in awe at what our great community has done for you. Ryan is such a rock star!! You only have to meet him once to want to be part of the growing community of people that know they have to do something to be part of our team. Way to go, Blue Moon Construction!! May your business be blessed!
