The Twin Cities are filled with story-and-a-half homes that are perfect for a certain kind of addition, called a shed dormer. Learn more about this popular remodeling project.
Modern Addition, Traditional Minneapolis Home
A remodel is underway. Take a look inside.
Follow along as we build a contemporary 2-story Addition on their traditional American Foursquare style home.
Drywall & Mechanicals
Heat, Air, Fire, Power! We’re roughing-in a fireplace gas line, and the electrical for the lighting, a ceiling fan, and outlets. We’ll also install the Addition’s HVAC system.
We are roughing-in electrical and running a gas line to fuel the fireplace. An unused gas line running to an original bedroom light fixture has been removed, as well as some old knob and tube wiring. The Sunroom rough-in includes electrical for the recessed lighting, a ceiling fan, and outlets.
The Master Bedroom’s needs are similar but will include electrical for two wall sconces on either side of the bed. The porch and exterior off the second-story Master will also require electrical rough-in for lighting.
We’re installing mini-split HVAC ceiling cassettes in the Sunroom as well as the Master Bedroom on the Addition’s second floor. These units will help heat and cool the Addition. The minimal mini-split cassettes are quiet and integrate sleekly into the ceiling.
As walls go up, the new Sunroom and expanded Master Bedroom are taking shape!
It’s time to cover the Addition’s framed up bones with a smooth skin of drywall. The new Sunroom walls meet the existing Dining Room walls in an oversized open doorway. In the Master Bedroom, the new Addition walls have to transition smoothly into the home’s existing walls. We’re striving for seamlessness between the new walls and the existing.
