TreHus Architects Artisans

‘It is more than being passionate about the details of design and craftsmanship. It’s about the study and reflection of your lifestyle, perceptions of what is important to you, and transforming those ideas into something inspiring.’

We’ve been Featured on Houzz!

Check out the Houzz article below!

Houzz writes about the Minnesota wine room conveniently located next to the family room is designed to draw a crowd.

Room of the Day: An Inviting Space for Sipping Wine With Friends

Wine rooms or cellars are usually enclosed, climate-controlled spaces for quiet, intimate tastings of the wine enthusiast’s favorite vintages. The owners wanted their wine room, located directly off the family room, to be a warm and inviting space.

The space was previously a wet bar and kitchenette, so the plumbing was already in place for its transition to a wine room. TreHus senior project manager Dave Carson and his team created a space where guests could peruse the extensive wine collection, open up a bottle and then take a glass back to the family room.

The custom wine cabinets are refrigerated, with airtight seals surrounding the quarter-inch tempered-glass doors. A ventilation and temperature control system allows the homeowners to ensure that the various cabinets are kept at the appropriate temperature for the different wine varietals. The ceilings and walls are insulated to add even greater temperature control.

The wine room’s cherry cabinets have LED lighting on the top and bottom for easy viewing. The clients requested a wine barrel in the room. Carson and his team found a barrel, cut it in half to insert sink plumbing and fastened it to the wall. Reclaimed-wood ceiling beams sit below a tongue-and-groove ceiling that was distressed to make it look aged. The countertops are granite, the floor is slate laid in a random staggered pattern, and the backsplashes below the liquor and glassware cabinets are clad in field tile from Encore Ceramics. Martha O’Hara Interiors found the cheese table and the bronze chandelier to add to the wine room’s old-world ambience.

2016 B.L.E.N.D Awards

October 21, 2016

We are proud to announce that two TreHus projects won 2016 B.L.E.N.D Awards for Addition/Remodel! The BLEND Award organization recognizes that redevelopment of the residential parts of the neighborhood is both a given and a positive indicator for the neighborhood.


Kenwood Park Remodel

A new porch was added to this 1905 home to give it a more attractive front façade and a stronger connection to neighbors and the outdoors. The porch design incorporated space for a new, generous entry vestibule to house all the functions of a mudroom in a more elegant setting. At the rear of the home, a new deck and staircase provides access to the exterior patio while creating space for a dining table. A tasteful privacy screen creates an intimate setting, and a chain downspout is used to deposit rain water into a new planter. The result of the project is a reinvigorated, more welcoming home with strong connections to the neighborhood in the front and rear, and with all projects designed and constructed in a way that honors the historic character of the home and its surroundings.

Creekside Craftsman Addition

The owners of this early 1900’s Craftsman-style house, now feel like their home is a true match of the family’s personality, and are thrilled they didn’t have to give up the character they love. The addition’s architectural details blend beautifully with the rest of the home and surrounding neighborhood. New brick and stucco were matched flawlessly to blend in with the existing exterior. Along the same lines, matching beadboard soffits and window mullions were chosen for historical accuracy. Before, the tiny room off the living room lacked purpose, now the addition holds a comfortably-sized study. A mix of soft colors, textures, and bold patterns in the living room enhance the quarter sawn oak trim and the client’s collection of Arts and Crafts furniture. Large unused doors leading to the porch were replaced with high windows, allowing for a more functional seating arrangement.
