Honoree: Warren Home Restorations, Inc., Excelsior
The owners of a 1970s-era ranch-style home, situated on a lake in Chanhassen, wanted to renovate the dated exterior into something inviting and graceful. Warren Home Restorations built over the existing roof, giving the structure more height and improving attic ventilation. The renovation expanded the home’s living area in key locations, and created visual interest with gables, columns, brackets, and copper roof details. The existing stone was incorporated into the new design, per the homeowners’ request. A newly roofed porch facing the lake includes retractable screens. Its octagonal shape blends with the existing curved staircase and adjacent landscape waterfall.
