project update: mendota heights

November 9, 2011

Hammers are being swung, concrete is being poured and measurements are happening for custom cabinetry. Yes – our project in Mendota Heights is in full swing and there is lots to update, so here is a smidge for you today…

 

Here are some snapshots of the progress so far…

In the top ‘before’ picture you can see that there was a screen porch on the right side of the house. Inside, we re-oriented where the kitchen is and now it will be to the left of screen porch. We decided to remove the porch for a couple of reasons… now there will be  more room for the herb garden, there is a better flow from inside to outside, and view from kitchen to pond is clear, where before the porch was blocking it.

In the bottom ‘before’ and ‘after’ picture, you can see that off of the new kitchen and dining room, we designed a covered patio space for grilling, eating and entertaining outside. The family loves to spend time outside and enjoy our beautiful MN weather.

The in-ground pool will see updates this spring.

 
 
 
 
 
 
While the pool is closed for the season, once spring comes around and renovations are made, this pool will be the go-to spot for the kids (and adults) to hang out at for the summer. It’s just a hop, skip and a jump away from the tennis courts, pond, and main house.
