Design: We love designing great buildings as much as we love building great designs. Stately Victorian? Mid Century Rambler? Mill City Condo? We will make your home timeless yet unique by helping you discover surprise details along the way. As a full-service general contractor we can shepherd your project from infancy through completion. From initial sketches to fully detailed construction drawings, and from site preparation through the final (and short!) punch list, we’re with you every step of the way. We have strong relationships with quite a few architects and interior designers, including James Dayton Design, SALA Architecture, Shelter Architecture, Peterssen Keller Architecture, Studio 134, Underground Design Group, Timothy Fuller Architects, and Conlin Rudd Interior Design. We also have long list of projects that we’ve designed in-house. Please give us a call if you’d like to learn more about any of our homes!

The addition of two dormers, one for the dining area and one for Elena’s bedroom, allowed us to create a dynamic eat-in kitchen which is much more suited to the family’s lifestyle. The family also gained a valuable future basement … Continue reading →

Portland Avenue Whole House

The client’s recent move from the Southwest prompted us to remodel their dank, leaching limestone basement into warm haven inspired by the tones and textures of Santa Fe. We lowered the floor four inches for a little more headroom and … Continue reading →

Crocus Hill Music Studio

This St. Paul carriage house took on a new identity with this stylized upper level music studio. New windows, recycled denim sound batting, heated flooring, and a “sound wall” constructed of cedar 4×4 post cut-offs all contributed to a space … Continue reading →
