Scandia Road - Edina, MN Main Level & Exterior Renovation

Welcome to another breathtaking creation by the Schrader Team. This claustrophobic rambler needed to open up and reveal its hidden beauty. Once the partition walls came down the owners saw the designer’s vision as a spacious, flowing floor plan with an elegant kitchen. Functionality was achieved by bumping out the garage and adding a mud room/walk-in pantry into the rear garage space & converting the tiny ¾ master bath into a full elegant master bath.

The exterior was rejuvenated from tired to alive by residing the home with James Hardie cement board siding with accented trim around the windows and outside corner boards. We added a porch and designed a pergola as an architectural focal point to the front of the home. A new stone façade with built in flower boxes was included to further increase the curb appeal. We used stamped concrete on the porch and swooping sidewalk that gives off the appearance of natural stone to compliment the new façade. The pergola posts were painted to match the trim on the home. New landscaping added the final touch to this magnificent renovation.

The project’s goal was achieved by listening to our clients, creative use of space, and attention to detail.
