Changes in the #header css attributes in the in-line styles:

background: url(http://www.coonce-ewing.com/images/kp/banner.jpg) no-repeat top #cb3a26;
background: url(http://www.coonce-ewing.com/images/kp/banner.jpg) no-repeat top left #cb3a26;


padding: 15px 10px 15px 10px;
padding: 0;

should get you pretty close.
