Build Out Update

Hello all! This is my latest update on what's going on with The Kids Clubhouse.  If you haven't seen my latest video post on Facebook...you can check it out here ->
Facebook Update Video

Today, I spent a few hours in the space trying to clean and organize before the build out begins.  I've received the first proposal from my general contractor and now I'm waiting for the second contractor proposal to come in.  As soon as I get the 2nd proposal, we (my husband and I) will make the decision on who to hire and then get started!! This is such an exciting time because I can finally see the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.  So if everything keeps going as planned, we will start construction for the build out in 2-3 weeks.  Construction time is estimated at 10-12 weeks...granted nothing goes wrong during construction (crossing my fingers!).

There are quite a few things to get done before TKC can open to the public. Besides the bathroom build, the play structures n…

Latest Updates for The Kids Clubhouse

Welcome back to The Kids Clubhouse blog page!  I apologize that it has taken such a long time to write this blog post but in all honesty, life and business has been incredibly hectic and crazy...trying to update all the social media pages, running the Pop Up location and closing it down, overseeing the build-out of the permanent location and the most important job of all...taking care of my family.  So now I am going to sit down and try to answer questions that many, many customers have been asking.  Here are the most Frequently Asked Questions:



Q:  When will the permanent location be open? A:  As of today, 7/11/19, we are still waiting for our plans to be approved and obtain permits from the City of Rancho Mirage.  It has been approximately 4 months since we moved into the permanent space (Suite A174). My architect and contractor have been working tirelessly to move things along.  But like any business venture, there is tons of red tape to get through.   I don't think many know how…

The latest update on The Kids Clubhouse

Once I started the Pop Up site for The Kids Clubhouse, I neglected posting on the blog.  Getting the Pop Up up and running for kids was a top priority.  I was hoping once it was running smoothly, I could focus on the #1 priority...opening The Kids Clubhouse actual location.  Fast forward 4 months later and where are we now in this project??  Well, there's a lot to tell.  Here's my condensed version of what's going on with The Kids Clubhouse.

As you know, our space at The River @ Rancho Mirage was set and ready to go for our build out.     8,000 sq ft of big, beautiful space on the 2nd floor of The River.  We were waiting (and waiting and waiting!) to get the green light from the Rancho Mirage City Planner.  After almost 3 months of wondering what was going on with the build out approval, my architect delivered the worst news he could give me.  The City of Rancho Mirage could NOT approve the build out! What!?!?  Yes, unfortunately our original plans for a 2nd floor Indoor P…

Demo Update and New Clubhouse Residents :-)

It's been about a week and a half since my last visit to check on the progress of the demo.  What a difference a week makes!  All of the walls that were separating the 3 spaces are now gone. I can see from one side, straight through to the end of 8,000 sq ft. There's still quite a bit left for the crew to take down but the schedule seems to be on track. About 1-2 more weeks and we should be golden!

Another little bit of exciting progress is that we will be taking in 5 new "residents". We're now expecting Elephant, Monkey, Panda, Unicorn and Dog ride-on animals to be permanent residents at The Kids Clubhouse for all our little customers to enjoy. Mom or Dad will even be able to ride with their child. But no need to worry about extra costs (like at the mall), the use of the ride-on animals will be included in the Open Play admission fee.








Playground equipment rolling in

I went to The River yesterday afternoon to see how far along the demo is.  It looks like a war zone in there but the walls and office rooms in the first space are now gone!  I wasn't able to snap any pictures because the demo crew was done for the day by the time I got there.  But, the manufacturer of my playground equipment emailed me to let me know that the production of my soft play carousel and mini town airplane is completed!!  They look fantastic...I can't wait for them to be put into the space.
