Fall 2016 Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase

Showcase Home #R3
Great Room/Family Room, Kitchen, Main Level, Mud Room/Laundry and Owners’ Suite
2208 Great Oaks Drive
Burnsville, MN 55337

After living in their home for over 10 years, the homeowners felt like it was time to give their 1990s home a refresh! By expanding the walkway into the dining room and through to the kitchen, the visibility and feel of an open-concept was created from the front entry. The kitchen was reconfigured to improve ease and use space better, as well as give a fresh look. The step-down areas were raised to remove the dangerous trip-factor and give the appearance of a larger, more open space at the same time. The laundry wall and doorway to the kitchen were shifted to improve the functionality of the mudroom.

Showcase Home #R47
Addition, Kitchen, Lower Level, Main Level and Whole House
2383 South Shore Blvd.
White Bear Lake, MN 55110

This 70s rambler with stunning lake views under went an extensive main-level renovation. The cramped U-shaped kitchen has been completely transformed by removing walls to incorporate a large island and sight-lines through the home and out to the lake creating the desired open-concept floor plan. By transforming their large sun room into the dining and living room, the homeowners were able to gain an incredible owners’ suite without an addition and transform the old suite into a guest bedroom and bathroom. Their new suite includes a large walk-in closet and master bathroom. Come see how Ispiri turned shag to a modern day shiner!

Showcase Home #R52
Exterior, Great Room/Family Room and Kitchen
3312 Crestmoor Bay
Woodbury, MN 55125


This beautiful corner-lot home started by upgrading the golden oak with new painted white kitchen cabinetry. We were able to incorporate a beverage center area by removing the 90s kitchen-desk trend between the KT and dining room. Fireplace updates, wainscot panels and new wall sconces in the family room complete the main level’s new look. The second phase was a full exterior/landscape renovation. With fresh paint in a new color scheme, the exterior now has a contemporary appearance! By replacing the overgrown evergreens with fully mature spruce, firs, pines, the family now has the perfect yard to enjoy their new sport court!
