Eden Prairie Kitchen Remodeled in One Day

Monday, June 25th, 2012

We just wrapped a great kitchen remodel in an Eden Prairie home! The house was part of a town home development built in the 1970’s. The homeowner wanted to update and beautify her kitchen and bring some extra life into the room. This meant replacing her laminate countertops, trading out her stainless steel sink, and otherwise upgrading the space.

To begin, we went shopping with the homeowner to assist her in picking out the perfect granite countertop and plumbing supplies. In addition to making the changes noted above, we also replaced a broken faucet and installed a garbage disposal, making her kitchen more functional for everyday use.

However, our real feat for this project was the timeliness within which we were able to complete it. For this project we were able to get in and out in just one day! Our homeowner was excited to learn that in just twenty-four hour we could organize the carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and granite installers necessary for a project of this size. We started construction first thing in the morning and by the end of the day we were able to provide a brand new space!

“Each morning I come down to my living area and find myself smiling as I run my hand over the gleaming new surfaces in the kitchen! This was my gift to myself for my 85th birthday. A design expert and most courteous gentleman by the name of Paul Weld came by after I contacted Sass. He orchestrated the project, carefully listening to my vision and brought material samples until we had the perfect choice. He was on time, courteous, helpful and quick to grasp my ideas-making the process truly enjoyable. I’m having fun inviting my friends over to surprise them! Thanks to Paul and the exceptional workmen!” – Norma

Minnetonka Home Remodel – Kitchen and Addition

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Over the past three months we had the opportunity to take on a great home remodel, complete with one of our favorite projects – a home addition!  A Minnetonka family asked us to help them update their two-story 1960’s home by remodeling their kitchen and expanding with a home addition.  We started in the kitchen, opening up the space by removing three walls and eliminating the home’s drop-down soffit.  Next, to move the room into more modern times, we replaced the family’s dark stained, flat panel cabinets with custom white enamel cabinets and traded out their old and outdated Formica for new countertops!  To add warmth to the room, while also helping to establish a sense of continuity with the rest of the home, we replaced the outdated linoleum with oak hardwood floors.

With their newly brightened and more functional kitchen in place, our homeowners were ready for us to tackle phase two – the addition!  The family’s existing home had no first floor bathroom or laundry room.  To remedy these issues we designed an 18’ x 20’ addition to the back of the house – the perfect space for a first floor laundry room complete with laundry tub, washer, and dryer.  Also, in this space we constructed an elegant yet functional first floor bathroom.  To move the room from utilitarian to utopia we included a ceramic shower, a ceramic tiled floor, four foot wide vanity, and water closet.

Last, but certainly not least, we carved our space for a family room.  This particular lot backed up to a great wooded area which inspired us to add lots of windows – including a bump out bay window – and a glass patio door, perfect for viewing the wildlife that frequented this family’s backyard.  Finally, we installed oak hardwood flooring for warmth that flows throughout the rest of the first floor.

When all was said and done, the homeowners were particularly pleased with the way in which the new construction melded naturally with the existing structure.  And we were pleased to have another satisfied customer!  Are you ready for your own home renovation or addition?
