Giving Back

Cook Bros. Construction was involved in an amazing project of love this November when we had the privilege along with several other organizations who volunteered to complete some much-needed home improvements and upgrades to the home of a United States Air Force veteran. We, along with other organizations, partnered with Rebuilding Together Knoxville, a group that organizes home improvement projects for veterans, the elderly, and the disabled. Staff Sergeant Lale and his family have had quite a year for bad news, but at least these projects are now taken off his to-do list — as well as his budget. The effort of Cook Bros. and all who participated was received with most grateful hearts. You can find more information on this project here: Rebuilding-Knoxville-Nov2014-01 Rebuilding-Knoxville-Nov2014-02 Rebuilding-Knoxville-Nov2014-03 Rebuilding-Knoxville-Nov2014-05

What’s in Your Ideal Kitchen?


If you could have anything you wanted in a kitchen, what would you choose? Clean, sophisticated lines or rustic log cabin? Maybe you prefer a country kitchen with rooster curtains and a farmhouse table. Would you rather have the clean look of fresh white paint on your cabinets or the log cabin look of stain? The convenience of a walk-in pantry, perhaps. Stainless appliances? Electric, gas or smooth cook-top?

We have friends who have a large family, and they eat at home 99% of the time. They would LOVE to have a kitchen designed around their family with a larger stove, oven, and dishwasher. A walk-in pantry would be a dream come true for them, and appliances that wouldn’t show the fingerprints would be like heaven. Cook Bros. Construction can make this happen for them, and we can do the same for you, no matter what you design.

Rebuilding Together Knoxville – Elijah James’ Home

Elijah James is a sweet three year old with the most severe form of spina bifida, rachischisis. His family and friends banded together to get him a wheelchair, but his house was not accessible with it. An organization called @Rebuilding Together Knoxville has been working with about a dozen construction companies to give Elijah an accessible home. We were so proud and honored to be a part of this effort by assisting with building a much needed ramp from his driveway to his house. The fist bumps we received as he used that ramp melted and stole our hearts. Visit his Facebook page to learn more:

Happy Halloween from CBC

Happy Halloween! It seems there will be many little Elsas and Ninja Turtles this year, but do you know any little trick-or-treaters who will be wearing construction hats and vests with tool belts fastened to their waists?
