Mount Horeb Mail
Matt Geiger - March 29, 2018 – On Monday, March 19, leaders of the Village of Mount Horeb and the Mount Horeb Economic Development Corporation joined National Construction and BeeHive Homes of Mount Horeb to celebrate the groundbreaking of an assisted living memory care home on 8th Street, expected to open this fall.
Carol Johnson, executive director of the Mount Horeb Economic Development Corporation, thanked BeeHive Homes for selecting a local builder for the project. “Jeff Grundahl and National Construction have an outstanding reputation in our community and are committed to using local carpenters and subcontractors in all of their projects,” she said, noting both the jobs required to build the facilities and 45 new healthcare jobs available once the facility is fully open will help the local economy and families throughout the community.
National Construction owner and Mount Horeb resident Grundahl also emphasized the local economic impact of the project. “The community receives in return seven times every dollar spent in local labor,” he said, thanking BeeHive Homes owners Uriah Miller and Nicole Imbus for their investment. “It’s a great opportunity for us, and quite an asset to the community.”
Miller thanked the village and the team at National Construction. “We’re really happy to be building in Mount Horeb,” he said. “Our hope is to work with the community and make this a home.”
Tiffany King, executive director of the Mount Horeb Area Chamber of Commerce since February, welcomed BeeHive Homes to the community. Village President Randy Littel said the facility will fill a void. “We strive to be a community with a lot to offer to all residents. [This will help] to keep seniors in the community and close to family and friends,” he said.
The 8,844 square foot, 16 bedroom assisted living home is designed to resemble and feel like a residential home. The one-story facility will feature an open kitchen, buffet, dining and vaulted living space with a fireplace. Residents will have the option of either a large or studio unit, both having their own private ADA bathroom. Other features include a common bathroom and laundry room, an office and visitor bathrooms. The exterior will complement the upscale homes being built in the surrounding area and will use earth tone colors and architectural features and textures indigenous to the Mount Horeb area. The development includes two future buildings along with additional parking.
