Heather and Noelle had just finished building their dream home and were exhausted by the time we got involved. They’d had some tough relationships with contractors and, at the beginning, seemed pretty skeptical when we assured them of our interest in approaching the project with love and commitment to quality.

We started with a plan they’d received from the Colin Oglesbay of the firm they’d worked with on the house but, it didn’t fit with their budget. We reinvented it so it provided the functional aspects they needed, connected with the house in spirit and worked with their budget.

This project has received several awards from the AIA-MN.
