This beautiful home, completed Summer of 2020, is a perfect example of a whole-home remodel and Revision’s attention to detail and expert craftsmanship.
Of the many assets this home possessed, expanding the current view of the lake was vitally important to the homeowner. Additionally, maintaining a sense of inviting-comfort was going to be key to a successful remodel. Revision brought all of this and much to this completed whole-home remodel. Let’s start with the kitchen…
Initially, the kitchen was set further into the home, sharing a wall with the garage. Revision moved the kitchen ten feet into the living space. Now, the kitchen area is part of the main living space and has unobstructed views of Lake Minnetonka. As you look at the images, keep in mind that the dining, living, and gathering room individual rooms, and sunken – before the whole-home remodel. Revision opened up the entire main-floor by adding metal beams for support, removing walls, and raising the sunken areas so that everything was on the same plane.
Moving the kitchen into the living space opened up many possibilities for the now vacant area next to the garage. Revision created a well-placed mudroom and laundry area, plenty of storage, a small office center, and a powder room – as seen in the following images.

As we start new projects and wrap up current projects, we are reflecting back on past work with one common theme – kitchens! Most of our remodels include our clients kitchen…it is the heart of the home after all and most clients include their kitchen in the scope of our work. So, with that, we thought we would look back at some of our favorite kitchens from past projects!
A project we wrapped up in 2018 that we absolutely loved – with amazing views of Lake Minnetonka from the kitchen, who wouldn’t want to cook in here?!
Creek Valley Vista
A fresh white kitchen in Edina, we enjoyed expanding these clients space and making the kitchen a place they enjoy! We think it looks stunning.
Urban Coastal Cottage
This was such a fun project for us! Not only were the clients super fun to work with, it was a simple project with lots of white paint that gave this outdated kitchen an instant refresh! It’s amazing what white paint, new plumbing and electrical fixtures can do to a space.
France Ave Fixer
A fun alternative to an all white kitchen, we love the gray perimeter cabinetry with the white island! Even more fun is the special place for these clients’ furry friend dining space!
Country Club Reno
We get asked about this project a lot! Those pendants are eye-catching and the kitchen is bright and elegant with so much character.
Clay Cliffe Lakehouse
One of our more recent completions, this kitchen is absolutely stunning. The honed marble countertops paired with the soft warm wood flooring, two toned cabinetry and fun backsplash creates a luxury living look in a casual, livable home.
One design trend that is worth pointing out; white cabinetry! It is very much a trend we are still seeing in upcoming projects and we think it is such a classic selection.
Thanks for following along, we can’t wait to show off more kitchens as we complete them this year!

Our Urban Coastal Cottage project is the perfect nautical themed lake home where many memories are going to be made! We are excited to share the full reveal and fill you in on what was included in our project scope.
When purchasing this property, our clients were in search of a lake home getaway from their downtown Minneapolis busy city life. This home was in the perfect location, with all of the amenities they were looking for – it just needed to be updated to fit their needs and personal style!
In order to do so, they invited us in to complete their renovation! With budget in mind, we were able to make a big impact with minimal changes. The biggest transformation was made with PAINT! It is amazing what a fresh coat of white paint can do to update a space.
Below are some of our favorite rooms:
Existing kitchen cabinets were painted white, a new island with updated countertops and light fixtures, this kitchen is bright and beautiful!
This bunk room got a facelift with fresh new white paint, light fixtures and furniture! It turned out so cute and fun for kiddos!
The Bonus Room is gorgeous after removing some bulky built-ins, painting it all white, and of course some new furniture with pops of nautical blue.
The Master Suite with amazing views was once again painted all white, new light fixtures and window treatments were installed – really just cosmetic changes for a great new look!
Be sure to head to our portfolio page to see the rest of the photos!
This lake home getaway is so charming and ready for many memories to be made.
