This award winning victorian home was in need of much love. The exterior was eroding, the windows were all original and the home's envelope leaked like no other.
Along with some obvious physical needs, the home also lacked the beauty and elegance it once had for the Summit Ave neighborhood in St. Paul. The rooms were small, dark and dysfunctional along with other historic elements that were eroding due to improper care.
We took on this whole house remodel head first, salvaging the entire footprint and original old flooring. We also installed a geothermal heating/cooling system, recycled the old millwork, installed Marvin low EII windows, installed water efficient appliances along with other energy-saving lighting techniques, while harnessing Southern lighting.
Bella can argue that her favorite spot is the new sunny and restored front porch and newly finished sunroom above. Here she can watch year round the cars go by while collect daily pets from passerbys.
