Decade the home was built: 1960s
Type of remodel: Whole-house renovation with second-story and master suite additions
Remodeling timeline: Nine months
Before: The house was narrow and cramped, with very little room for a growing family.
Challenges: Trying to find a way to keep the character of a rambler while adding a second-story addition.
Unique elements: Many items within the home were given a second life, including the reclaimed mantle incorporating railroad ties into the design, bar shelving built with reclaimed wood from the local 3M plant, and a handcrafted reclaimed barn door, featuring the original barn door track.
After: This property now includes a four car garage, a spacious bonus room, and a large main floor gathering space, plus an eye-catching backyard designed with rock walls, and a swimming pool.
