From Aging Rambler to Prairie Classic Green building principles and modern living guided the remodel of this 1969 Linwood Minnesota lake home.
Open, Airy Floorplan Designed for Entertaining
The main floor was lifted for higher ceilings, more light, and better lot presence. Electrolux kitchen appliances like the double ovens, and the high-capacity refrigerator, make this kitchen a chef’s dream. The island sink gives two cooks plenty of elbow room. A variety of natural woods, ceramic and stone are finishes perfect for a Prairie Classic home decor. Details like lighting fixtures were selected complement architectural details, like the arched doorways.
Strong, Durable and Energy-Saving Foundation
Saving energy and reducing environmental impact was important to the family. The foundation was poured with energy-saving insulated concrete forms (ICF’s).
