Basswood Residence

Another great design and install project. We’ve been working on this project over the last several years. It’s one of our favorites. Here’s a little taste to show how the gardens are coming along in the front yard. Notice how the steps we designed shift gracefully through the gardens. The gardens are really taking shape. They were planted about a year ago. Keep posted. We’ll get photos of the back soon. IMG_0878 IMG_0880 IMG_0887 IMG_0879 IMG_0883 IMG_0884 IMG_0882


We have really enjoyed working on this project. You may remember a couple of posts from last summer and fall showing some of the installation process and materials. The transformation of this space is beautiful. It demonstrates what good design and detailed execution can do especially when working in a small space.

This project near Cedar Lake in Minneapolis is one we’ve been working on for a while now.  A beautiful modern home… wow!  This will be the first of a couple posts chronicling the progress and completion of this project.
