March 15th, 2010 by Peter Schmelzer

Here’s a quick update on the work we’re currently doing in the office.

Whole House Remodel on a lake near New Prague: Planning to add bedrooms, remodel the great room, expand the deck, give the house a new exterior image, improve insulation levels for energy efficiency, enhance the heating system with radiant floors, and relocate the garage for a more pleasing approach sequence. This is a master plan to be built in phases in few years.

Kitchen Addition and Remodeling near Cannon Falls: Expand the dining room and kitchen to better suit the owners desires, provide a place for family activities (making music, building muscles, and preserving farm produce,) re-side the exterior, and provide better views.

Master Suite Remodeling in Northfield: Without changing the footprint, provide an upscale master suite with his and hers dressing rooms and an updated master bathroom. Construction completion will be in early April 2010.

Historic Home Interior Master Planning in Northfield: Provide a modern kitchen, improve traffic flow, and open up views within the home.

Energy Efficient Cottage near Lengby: Design a new cottage for a lakeside lot, focusing on keeping it small, functional, and full of character. Construction in fall 2010.

New Lake Home near New Prague: Four bedroom, three bath walk-out for an experienced builder planning a home for his family. Construction in fall 2010.

New Custom Residence near Rochester: one-level living for a newly retired couple with grandkids, featuring structural insulated panels and insulated concrete form foundations. Bids are in and construction will begin in mid- to late-April, when road restrictions are lifted.

This is fairly standard for our office, a variety of larger and smaller projects, all focused on the needs and goals of our clientele. Some nearing completion, others starting design. We find each project to be unique in its pace, requirements and resolution. The variety is delightful and stimulating.

We welcome your call to help you into your new space.
