Who says you have to tear the whole thing down? We don’t.

Two very different homes, each with a second level worth saving, and each with a first level worthy of demolition.   Tour each of these homes in the 2015 Remodelers ShowcaseMarch 27-29.  

R39  3900 Vincent Avenue South, Minneapolis

The second floor of this home, added to this charming Linden Hills cottage 15 years ago was worth saving, however not much else was salvageable. The first level floor plan was very confining and the basement was damp and dreary. We were able to cost-effectively hold up the existing second level of the home while reconstructing the first level and basement. We welcome you to come to see this imaginative transformation. See how cramped and confining can be remade into modern and open.

R40  4431 Dupont Avenue South, Minnepolis

The owners of this beautiful south Minneapolis home came to Quartersawn with a dilemma. How to create more functional use of space without sacrificing the charm and character of the home’s original architecture? The solution was to rebuild an addition off the back of the house which incorporates a kitchen, mudroom, powder bath and family room. The full basement below is an additional bonus. Stop by to see how we brought new life to this 100 year home.

 

 

2014 Fall Remodelers Showcase

We are excited to announce a newly remodeled home on the Fall Remodelers Showcase. House number R52

Charming, classic, and refined… describe elegant homes constructed in the 1920’s. Spacious, open, and accessible do not.

That was the challenge brought to us by the homeowners of this classic Southwest Minneapolis Tudor gem.  Expand upon the wonderful home they had loved for years and incorporate modern amenities into it, including an elevator, to fulfill the accessibility needs of their family

Come visit this project to see how we took an ordinary three-bedroom, one-bath home, and gave it all of the improvements a modern family requires, while blending it seamlessly into a charming home in a picturesque neighborhood. - See more on the Parade of Homes website
