Revision Round Up – Kitchens

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!

Ferndale Lakehome

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 Not only were the clients super fun to work with, it was a simple project with lots of white paint that gave this outdated kitchen an instant refresh!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!

Parade of Homes Remodeling Tour

2015 Fall Parade of Homes Remodeling Tour

It’s the final count down to the Fall Parade of Homes Remodeling Tour. Next Friday, October 2nd thru Sunday October 4th,  Revision will have two homes featured on the remodeling tour. Below we included a brief introduction and some photos of our two projects!


Home # 1; Entry R49; 5505 Merritt Circle, Edina

This 1950’s home underwent a whole-house renovation. In addition to maximizing the ceiling height on all three levels, the goal was to make the home functional yet unique. An open staircase highlighted by large windows is a focal point of the home. Other project highlights include wide-plank hickory floors, an updated gourmet kitchen with a butlers pantry, new large bonus room upstairs featuring French doors to a balcony, built-in reading nooks along the windows of the children’s bedrooms, and a main-floor master with a private sitting room that overlooks the backyard.

Home # 2; Entry R55; 4850 France Avenue South, Edina:

This home located in the heart of Edina takes charm to a new level. After a whole-house renovation and 2nd-floor addition, homeowners will enjoy the “city life” while living in a farmhouse-inspired cottage. Amenities include a screened-in front porch living space, brick exterior finishes, beaded inset cabinets, butler’s pantry and a new kitchen. The goal was to keep as many original features as possible including oak floors and the original fireplace – now updated with a wood mantle and wood paneled front. To complete the transformation, four bedrooms were added upstairs, as well as a 2nd-floor laundry room.

Company Field Trip


This week, the Revision and Stonewood teams took a field trip to the Roth Showroom. At the showroom one will find the brands Wolf, Sub Zero, Asko and Best. The showroom not only displays several intelligent, well-designed appliances within the luxury category, it offers homeowners who purchase these luxury brands an opportunity to take the owner’s manual one step further with educational workshops. Also offered are food and wine experiences where a guest chef will demonstrate a variety of techniques using Wolf products.

We were spoiled with a wonderful brunch prepared by Chef Colin that consisted of beef tenderloin, monte cristo sandwiches, salad, potato hash, truffle grilled asparagus, and strawberry-mango smoothies. Chef Colin explained techniques for using the Wolf products, and we were able to have a “live” demonstration and watch him use the appliances to create our meal. The food was WONDERFUL!!! Full of flavor, cooked to perfection, and I’m pretty sure everyone went back for seconds.

After the delicious brunch, we were divided into three groups and had private tours of the showroom. We learned about the different brands, new product designs, and gained a lot of insight. When our clients have questions regarding selecting appliances for their new builds/remodels, we want to help however we can.

Below are some photos from the day!




Knock Knock!

Who’s There?

Knock Knock! We wanted to share a unique feature homeowners of a recent remodel selected for their home. One would think a King or Queen, maybe even a Giant, lives in the beautifully remodeled house, however, the 9 foot tall door and 30 pound door knocker- yes, 30 pounds- are simply a characteristic reflecting the homeowners fun and unique style.

Just to give you an idea of dimensions, the door is 9 feet tall and 3.5 feet wide. The knocker is 12″ round and approximately 30 pounds!





Custom Wine Chiller

It’s 5 O’ Clock Somewhere:

We love this custom built wine chiller that just got installed in one of Revision’s current remodels. Keep an eye out for some professional photographs coming soon! See below for details:

  • Custom-Built
  • Full Glass Rectangular Wine Chiller
  • Nine feet tall
  • 300 lb doors
  • Fully insulated on all three sides
  • Controlled by a temperature gauge that is located in a faux wine bottle
  • Holds approximately 250 bottles

Revision LLC Receives Big50 Award

 Revision LLC Honored With Big50 Award

WAYZATA, MN (May 11, 2015) – John Daly, President of Revision LLC, has been selected by REMODELING magazine to join the REMODELING Big50. The Big50 awards were presented at a gala dinner at the Remodeling Leadership Conference in Washington, DC, on May 7, 2015. The 2015 Big50 winners are featured in the May issue of REMODELING, a national trade publication read by more than 130,000 professional remodeling contractors, with longer profiles of the winners posted on the REMODELING website,

Each year since 1986, the REMODELING Big50 inducts 50 owners of remodeling companies that have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their community or the industry at large. Big50 remodelers run successful, often growing, companies of various sizes that have taken the lead in raising industry standards.

The Big50 selection process has become increasingly rigorous in recent years, and the result, REMODELING editors believe, is one of the strongest classes to date. “Uniting the 2015 inductees are high standards and a determination to excel — taking the opportunity to build efficiencies into their systems and processes— ensuring that they are poised to meet their sales, production, and customer-service goals and continue to thrive,” according to REMODELING.

“We are very honored to receive this distinction,” says John Daly, President of Revision LLC. “The award recognizes excellence and leadership, and we are privileged to be named to this select group of remodelers.”

REMODELING editors, columnists, industry leaders, and the companies themselves make the nominations each year.  Following a lengthy evaluation and interview process, the editors select the 50 individuals who exemplify the best of the industry that year, and who have something to offer other remodelers in proven practices.

REMODELING, published by Hanley Wood, is the leading publication in the home improvement industry. REMODELING has and continues to be the indispensable tool that remodelers cannot do without—delivering the business know-how, product and technical information that home improvement pros need to help make smart decisions that will shape their project success.
