The owners of this 1923 South Minneapolis Center-Hall Colonial home needed more space and the home itself needed updating, however, the owners did not want to lose the period feel of their home.


Castle constructed a two-story addition on the rear of the home, allowing for the kitchen to be remodeled and enlarged, and a half-bath to be added.


In the kitchen, custom cabinetry by Chelsea was installed and both Cambria quartz and butcher block countertops were used.


The home also boasts a quaint family room addition.


Lowering the basement floor allowed for a new ¾ basement bath and a new sauna.


Energy-efficient upgrades were also made.


To help preserve the original feel of the home, the existing floors were sanded and refinished and the stucco was re-dashed.


At the end of remodel, the owners had a beautifully enlarged and updated new space without sacrificing the period feel of their home.


This project was featured on Houzz for its compact storage in the laundry area!

This South Minneapolis family bathroom was pretty groovy before Castle arrived! Old shiny wallpaper, outdated and crumbling tile and an inefficient floor plan were not serving this growing family any longer.


A new floor plan opened up the natural light to the entire bathroom and allowed a much-desired double vanity to be installed. The homeowners wanted direct access from their master bedroom as well, so a new door opening was created for easier access without disturbing the rest of the household.


A bright space was important to the homeowners, so a solar tube was installed with an integral bath fan. The old window was converted to more private glass block, and a wall of mirror was added to reflect natural light throughout the space and to make the space feel bigger. A fresh, transitional color scheme was chosen with timeless materials like marble and white.

The biggest complaint with barn doors is they're not the best sound barriers. Tip: don't plan on using them where you need privacy.

Projected to make a comeback in 2019: wooden vanities, bathtubs and matte nickel.

This project was a unique kitchen refresh project. The original Northeast Minneapolis home was built in 1920, and sometime in the 90’s an addition with a remodeled kitchen was completed.

While the current homeowners appreciated the size and general layout of the kitchen, they wanted a more open floor plan to the dining room and to add some additional storage within the existing kitchen space.

An old desk area was not useful for them, so that was removed and the fridge was moved to that area. New cabinets were added in the corner for some additional storage space for the homeowner’s baking goods and was set up as a coffee area.

Where the old fridge once stood, the wall was opened up to create a new, wider opening to the dining room with a new peninsula for their kids and guests to sit. With some challenges in finding significant plumbing and HVAC in the wall being opened, the end result is a little different than originally planned – but that is the story of remodeling!

All the original oak and new, matched oak cabinets were stained darker on the bottom, and painted white on the top.

New Cambria countertops add a classic touch to the space, and the homeowners did a fantastic job of installing their own tile backsplash and Adura luxury vinyl tile flooring. They now have a more classic yet eclectic space to entertain their guests (and children) in for years to come.
