Perhaps the most popular choice among those remodeling is the kitchen. More than ever before, kitchens have become the hub of family activity, a gathering place when family and friends come to visit and the place where you can try out those wonderful new recipes you’ve seen on the latest cooking show.


Kitchens are being transformed into places fit for a gourmet chef to prepare a meal. Open designs, solid surface and granite countertops, beautiful custom cabinets, stainless appliances, spectacular lighting and rich flooring are the features that can be incorporated into your beautifully remodeled kitchen.

Another popular remodeling trend seen here in Minnesota, as well as across the country, is transforming the owner’s suite into something you’d expect in the finest spa.

With hectic lifestyles, stressful work environments and juggling activity schedules for busy children, some time to escape from it all and pamper yourself is as close as your master bathroom suite.


Among the most popular remodeling trends we see here in Minnesota are remodeling kitchens, finishing lower levels and adding on to create new space. Other popular choices include master suites, home offices, bonus rooms, bathrooms, porches and even whole house renovations.


For many who have built a new home over the past few years, finishing the lower level at the time of initial construction just had to wait. We understand that sometimes overall home building budgets just won’t allow for a finished basement. But with more and more families choosing to stay in their existing homes and taking advantage of favorable refinancing opportunities, transforming that unfinished basement into more space for entertaining and accommodating a growing family is a great option.

In many cases, the unfinished basement space provides an empty canvas allowing us to help you design ideal entertaining environments for you to enjoy with family and friends. Some popular features that may add value and charm to your lower level include; fireplaces, dramatic entertainment centers, wet bars, wine cellars, home theaters, exercise rooms and home offices.
