Progress Report- White Bear Lake Custom Build

Here Comes the Sun

The sun is shining , the sky is blue, and chirps and tweets are beginning to fill the air. On this beautiful Tuesday afternoon, we wanted to share a progress photo of a home being built on White Bear Lake. The architectural design of this home is stunning, and we cannot wait to see the finished product. As you take a look at the photo, you can see three levels with rounded walls.  The bottom level will become a music room, the middle level will one day be a three season porch, and the top level will be the master bedroom. We also included a photo of the view the homeowner will have from any of the levels; this specific photo is taken from the top floor, looking out at White Bear Lake.

Fall 2014 Parade of Homes features Stonewood Dream Home

This fall, the Parade of Homes will not only feature a beautiful Stonewood project, the house that has been selected has earned the title of the “Dream Home”. Nestled in the heart of Edina, this home exudes calm in a resort-like setting. A Japanese style spa bath, large screened porch with a stone fire-place, fire pit, and open air kitchen, exercise room overlooking an attached sport court and sunken media pit are few of the many wonderful amenities of this spectacular design. We’re looking forward to show off this home and share the published article with all of our followers.

Dream Home

Just a week to go until the Parade of Homes begins!


3341 Shore Drive, Excelsior    
Parade of homes Luxury home lake minnetonka


Cozy. Lake. Cottage. This is one of those homes that, upon walking through the front door, you’ll feel right at home. Great views of Lake Minnewashta in a home that was designed from a “no more than we need” perspective. Smaller in scale, but refined and well appointed. Custom built for a family that is approaching the “empty nest”. The basement bedrooms allow room for the kids to return for the summer, and later return with the grandchildren. All the detail you’d expect in a Stonewood home, on a smaller scale.


Highway 7 to Dogwood Avenue; south to Shore Drive; left to model on the right.


PRICE:  $1,525,000 (SOLD)
STYLE: Two Story
REGIONS: Southwest

Stonewood’s staff Architect, Tom Flint, brings a new level of creativity to our design department

As you may be aware, Tom Flint, AIA joined Stonewood earlier this year.  Tom will be bringing a new level of detail to our interiors and focusing on our remodeling projects.  He’s done some great work thus far!  While we will continue to work with the great local architects that have designed so many of our homes in the past, Tom is another resource for our clients to consider for the design of their new home or remodeling project.  Here are a couple of examples of his work on a new home in the Palmer Pointe development on the west end of lake Minnetonka:

We’ve broken ground in Locust Hills, Wayzata on a new Custom Home!

Check out the mess we’ve made at Locust Hills!  Actually, it’s a very well organized job site, but a huge excavation in the woods.  This will be an amazing home.  Designed by Peter Eskuche, it’s a tudor style home that will be very authentic in detailing.  It’s a stand out project, and we’re proud to be a part of building it for a great family.  Check back for more photos…

Casco point, Orono custom home

We’ve got the foundation in and back filled at this custom home site in Orono. Like most of our Lake Minnetonka new construction projects, this Orono project began with a tear down. It will be an east coast inspired shingle home for a couple moving to the lake from Eden Prairie. Designed by Kathryn Alexander, Alexander Design Group. Check back for progress photos.

Yes, we build cabins.

We’re working on a design for a cabin in Northern Minnesota.  It’ll be a replacement for an existing cabin that the family has enjoyed for generations – built by our client’s father.  We’re working on renderings of the structure to aid in the design and the client’s understanding of the site – these are very early, no materials or landscaping, but are fun to look at in the early stage…
