Business Description
John Kraemer & Sons, Inc. is a luxury residential builder and remodeler, based out of Edina, Minnesota.

Founded in 1978 by Gary Kraemer & his late father John, the firm focuses on luxury residential projects of all shapes, sizes, and styles. While the firm is based out of Minnesota, they are uniquely positioned and willing to take on projects throughout the U.S.

Unique in the fact that JKS employs all of their own job superintendents, project managers, and finish carpenters. The firm works closely with each client on a 100% open book basis where everything is transparent, and all bids, invoices, and receipts are available for client review at any time.

Gary Kraemer, John Kraemer & Jeff Kraemer are personally involved each project, both large and small. Furthermore, each of John Kraemer & Sons' clients are assigned a job superintendent who are devoted solely to one job, and will be on site all day everyday until the project is complete. This makes John Kraemer & Sons unique from most builders whose superintendents manage multiple projects at a time.

John Kraemer & Sons was the recipient of the Builder of the Year award in 1999, 2009, and again in 2013. This honor is given to the builder who best exhibits trust, ethics, and customer satisfaction. They are the only three-time winner in the history of the award.

With two of Gary's sons, John & Jeff entering the business, the firm is now a third generation company.

Check out www.jkandsons.com for more information. We look forward to speaking with you, and are happy to provide an extensive list of references and tour you through past projects we've completed, as well as new homes and renovations we currently have in progress.

Sincerely,

John R. Kraemer

They do not keep heat in like a regular insulated window, so I would not use the room in the Winter. Use them if you plan on having the porch utilized as a three season porch. Durability-wise, they hold up great! Good luck.

With the exception of the third photo, all of these TVs are way too far from the seating to take advantage of their high resolution. You might as well be watching a 24-inch TV in some of these rooms. And don't get me started on the crick-inducing angle of the TV over the fireplace... THX offers an easy set of distance guidelines that ensure you're getting the full impact of that ginormous TV you bought: http://www.thx.com/consumer/home-entertainment/home-theater/hdtv-set-up/

Site finished floors allow the finisher to mix a custom stain just for that project. White Oak is an excellent species and easier to stain than Red Oak.

I'm seeing a lot of great outdoor spaces but notice there isn't much use of outdoor lighting. If anyone has any suggestions for good outdoor lighting, please let me know. (Preferably a taller light that can be installed on the lawn.
