Building a Home Addition in St. Louis Park
Our clients, a young family, love their neighborhood but wanted to expand the first-floor living space in their home, create a more open concept kitchen and dining space, and add a primary bedroom suite upstairs. Building a two-story addition on the back of their home will make this house a long-term home for their family. The addition will enlarge the living, kitchen, and dining areas. Upstairs it will allow for adding another bedroom and an additional bath on the second floor.
This family’s remodeling must-haves are:
- New larger, open-concept kitchen and dining area
- Add a mudroom
- Add a powder bathroom to the main floor
- Add a third bedroom and another bath upstairs, creating a new primary suite
Project Type: 2-story addition with a full-height basement foundation
Style of Home: Cape Cod
Year Built: 1950*
Project construction will take approximately 12 weeks to complete.
*Fun fact: This house was built in Robbinsdale and was moved to its current St. Louis Park location. Because it was moved to a new foundation, the eight-foot ceilings in the basement are taller than the neighborhood average. Also, the style of this home is laid out differently from the 1.5 story homes typical in this Minneapolis suburb.
