Two-Story Addition in South Minneapolis

A remodel is underway. Take a look inside.

Follow along as we build a two-story Addition on the back of this home in Minneapolis. The project includes an expanded Owner’s Suite, 2 Baths, & a Kitchen remodel.

Finished Remodel

It’s time to reveal the finished Addition! Take a look at the before and after photos.

This young family loved their house and neighborhood, but they wanted to make some changes to the home to better fit their long term needs. Their remodeling must-haves were:

  • A new larger Kitchen, more open to the adjacent Dining Room
  • Adding a main level Powder Room
  • Creating a Mudroom/Drop-zone area for coats, boot, and bags
  • Enlarging the Owner’s Bedroom to fit a king-size bed
  • Dedicated Office space

We built a home Addition to get this family everything on their wishlist. We transformed their dated, cramped Kitchen into an open, modern space with touches that echo the original character found throughout the rest of the 1923 home.

Kitchen Before | Fitting modern appliances into the existing Kitchen was a challenge. The refrigerator was tucked in a corner away from the main cooking and prep areas of the Kitchen.

Kitchen After | The finishes and fixtures for this remodel create a vintage-modern vibe, tying together elements from the new Addition to the home's existing features.

Kitchen After | The Addition expanded the Kitchen, creating room for a more efficient layout and ample space for appliances.

Creating An Owner’s Suite

Our client’s original Bedroom was small and did not have an en suite Bath. A small Bath could be accessed by walking down a hallway. The goal for this part of the remodel was to create an Owner’s Suite by enlarging the Bedroom into the Addition and adding a Bath. The existing 2nd-floor Bath down the hall can now become a dedicated kid’s Bath.

The Exterior After | The brick on the left is original to the home and the brick to the right on the Addition is new.
