We have a treat for you this year! We transformed a basic, one-story rambler into an elegant and functional two-story cottage! How did we make the seamless transformation?

With sophisticated design, smart construction, and a clear vision. We focused on making a smooth transition from the existing space to the new space. Working closely with the home owners, we made sure that our design fit their active lifestyle and growing family. The lower level was opened up to take advantage of the space and utilize natural light. It features a dining counter, fireplace, connected dining room, and utilitarian mud room. The second-story addition features an elegant owners’ suite with custom vanities, tiled shower, and spacious walk-in closet; two children’s bedrooms with a kid-friendly bathroom; and plenty of storage space.

Join us March 27th-29th (Friday from 1:00-7:00 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday from Noon-6:00 p.m.) for tours, hors d’oeuvres, and a chance to chat with the designers. Our home is number R33 and is located at 5100 Hankerson Avenue in Edina, MN.

Your Parade of Homes Guidebook is available at all Holiday Stations and more information can be found at the Parade of Homes website. Looking forward to seeing you there! In the meantime, enjoy a sneak peek of our rambler-turned-cottage:
