We recently shared some great news; Knight Construction Design, Inc. won a Roma Award and three CotY awards in 2020! Now that the big news is out, we wanted to share a closer look at the project that won a CotY award in the Residential Detached Structure category. Let's dive in! When the homeowner approached our team, their exterior lacked curb appeal. The home's front originally featured an entry structure composed of bulky stucco columns topped with painted wood beams. Because the structure matched the home's exterior, there was no visual appeal to draw the eye. The oversized columns also blocked natural light, which made the walkway feel dark and boxed in. Determined to give the home's exterior new life, our team got to work designing a brand-new structure. We created a natural timber pergola and paired it with a lighter brushed concrete walk. The Douglas Fir structure contrasts beautifully with the exterior of the home to create a welcoming focal point. Slender columns allow plenty of natural light to warm up the front entry. An architectural detail inside the home inspired the custom hand-crafted banding and bolts around the posts. This fun detail gives guests a peek of what's to come while creating a cohesive design inside and out. Ready for a closer look at this award-winning custom exterior project?

Project Feature: Minnetonka Main Level Transformation

We're excited to finally share the details of this stunning main level transformation our team recently completed! The homeowner of this Minnetonka, Minnesota rambler, felt like her main level had become dated and a little cramped. The original floor plan featured a large fireplace that extended from the basement up through the roof, which separated the kitchen and family room. To create a more functional, open floor plan, we removed the entire fireplace structure. Once we started demolition on the main level, our team found some structural issues with the roof. The repair required removing and rebuilding the roof structure in the middle of winter. Despite the setback, the final design turned out beautifully! We love the mix of white cabinets with stained cherry, which adds warmth and depth to the space. The kitchen is so much more functional now, thanks to the ample counter space and a generous island topped with a gorgeous quartz countertop. Creative storage solutions in the drawers and cabinets keep the kitchen organized and clutter-free.  The great room's wood beams and fireplace mantle perfectly complement the built-ins and give the space character. Rounding out this main level transformation is the newly remodeled sunroom, which features shiplap and wood beam ceiling accents. Our team had so much fun working on this project, and the homeowner was a joy to work alongside! She knew her vision was from the beginning, which made it easy for us to bring it to life.

We'd love to help you complete your home transformation! Design Details Cabinets: Modern Design Cabinetry Fireplace: Sherman Masonry Countertops: Cambria Appliances: Warners' Stellian
