Old world craftsmanship, Edina custom home builder

This is why I love this business! Working with the best craftsmen in the custom home building business. Few carpenters can design & build such a complex structure, much less from simple 3/8″ plywood.

In less than 2 weeks, our team designed and fabricated this 3 story staircase onsite. Still early in construction, no piece of this stair is more than 3/8″ thick, yet it supports the weight of several people with very little movement.

This stair is in the foyer of our 2011 parade of homes™ model in Edina, Rolling Green. It’s a custom built home, not for sale.

Lake Harriet masterpiece!

This home is being built just off Lake Harriet and will serve as our fall Parade home.

4400 sq. ft., 3 bedroom, designed to fit well into a developed neighborhood by Kathy Alexander (www.AlexanderDesignGroup.com This custom built home is truly hand crafted. Custom Millwork details, hand made cabinetry designed by Stonewood staff designer Mona Hurkadli, leaded glass, quarter sawn maple flooring.

Visit this home during the fall parade of homes™ in September.

Curved Stair Building, Edina Custom Home

Usually curved stairs a pre-fabricated in a factory… It’s not too many builders that build them from plywood, on site. The angles and radius’ involved are complex and can be confuse even a seasoned carpenter.

Our finish carpenter on this project has been site building curved staircases for over 23 years. Starting with raw plywood, cutting and laminating custom supporting beams… It’ll take him over 3 weeks to build this 3 level stair. Check back for progress photos as he installs the sections!

This stair is being built in our Edina, Rolling Green, model home for the 2011 Spring Parade of Homes™.

Architectural details, Edina Residence

It’s this sort of detail that makes a house special. Detailed design or consecutive archways in the main gallery. Hard to visualize even standing in the space… But with 3D tools in the hands of talented architects, it comes to life. In this case, Peter Eskuche, of Eskuche Creative group.
