Home Remodel in Little Canada

This project touched every single room of this 4-level split in Little Canada MN.

Highlights include:

Full remodels of two bathrooms

Partial remodel of a third bathroom

Painting of all walls and ceilings in the entire home

New floorcovering in every room of the home, including carpet, vinyl, and tile

Updated lighting

 

Since our clients were living in the home throughout the project, we decided to perform the transformation in two phases:  First the lower two levels, and then the upper two levels.  A furniture moving company was hired to relocate our clients belongings prior to each phase, and again at the completion of all of the work. At the conclusion of the project, our professional cleaning team removed all traces of dust and remodeling residue.

Our designer worked tirelessly with the clients to perfect all of the numerous choices in flooring, tile patterns, and paint colors.  She even helped our client hang her pictures and artwork.  Since each room of the home was touched by the project, careful consideration was given to how the different colors and textures work together.

Among the challenges that were faced and overcome:  A hidden mouse infestation that required much disinfectant and odor-blocking primer, An alarm system installation that had wires snaked where our hardwood floors needed to go, and a sensitive fire alarm that was set off during a wood cutting operation (You’ll be glad to know that the Little Canada Fire Chief is a nice fellow).

 

TESTIMONIAL

“Eric and Ruth Bader presented a personal, professional and competent response to the project that I proposed to them.  Never did I sense reluctance or unwillingness to adjust or modify what I wanted done.  Their suggestions were also made with an understanding of my needs and the outcomes that I wanted.
They have assembled a quality team of trades-people who were friendly, professional, and competent.
Over the 2-1/2 months of work, I felt my home and the project were in good hands.  I appreciated that all the work was supervised, double checked for perfection, and generally completed on schedule.  Thanks for a job well done!”

COZY BASEMENT IN INVER GROVE HEIGHTS

Our Inver Grove Heights clients wished to mimic the cozy feel of their favorite Irish pub.  Our design team made the most of a small space and low ceiling height.  The basement remodel features a custom bar, custom cabinets with custom stained glass and integrated sound system, a gas fireplace, bedroom with egress window, and a ¾ bathroom.  The bathroom took on a hockey theme.  In addition, the laundry room and mechanical room received new paint and luxury vinyl flooring.

This was a fun project for us, as our clients gave us freedom to produce some very custom touches for them, such as the hockey stick towel rack in the bathroom, custom cold-air return grate, and stained glass cabinet doors.

FULL HOME REMODEL IN COTTAGE GROVE

This 1950’s rambler hadn’t received much updating since it had been built.  The project includes a full kitchen, master bath remodel, and a completely finished basement.  In addition, the leaky old galvanized plumbing system was replaced with modern PVC and PEX piping.

 

MULTI-FINISH KITCHEN

Built in the 1950’s, this kitchen suffered from a lack of counter space, a lack of storage space, and some scary electrical and plumbing problems.  After fully gutting the room to the studs, the mechanicals were upgraded, the walls were re-insulated, drywalled and painted.  Custom cherry cabinets, Cambria quartz countertops, and stainless appliances provided the finishing touches.

Our design team did a great job of making the most of a very small galley kitchen space.   This kitchen incorporates numerous colors and textures to appeal to every sense:  Cherry, copper, stainless, bronze, dark gray backsplash tile, and dark brown LVT flooring.

 

MASTER BATHROOM

The bathroom also suffered from some electrical and plumbing deficiencies, including a rotten floor near the toilet.  After many “behind the wall” upgrades, the space was finished off with LVT floor tile, custom cherry cabinetry, Cambria quartz countertops, and fixtures from Delta and Kohler.

 

BASEMENT

Our clients goals for the basement were:  provide additional storage, upgrade the laundry service, add a ¾ bathroom, and provide a generous multi-purpose area, which could be used for family space or an office setup.  The space was dark and gloomy, so our plan included new egress windows and plenty of recessed lighting.  One side of the basement is “utility” with plenty of closets for storage.  The other side features the large multi-purpose space.  In addition, a combination laundry/bathroom consolidates these areas to free up space for other uses.
