TreHus Legacy

August 27, 2018

That tradition and culture of craftsmanship, passed down from boat builders, is still practiced by TreHus (TreHus is a Norwegian word that means “house of wood”). Founded in 1982 by David Amundson, a descendant of Gus and Adolf, the company employs a unique system called the Master Carpenter System to ensure that their carpenters provide focused, dedicated craftsmanship to each and every project. Whereas the organizational details are handled by a Project Manager, carpenters are free to concentrate on their craft. This freedom allows TreHus carpenters to create esteemed works of beauty and lasting quality.

Today, TreHus has developed into a full-service design and build remodeling company. Together, they have over 115 years of combined experience from historical restoration, residential remodels or additions, to custom home building and interior design.

Of course, TreHus’ expertise doesn’t end with the design and construction of your remodeling project. Their longstanding reputation for unparalleled customer service means that they will be around well after your project is completed to address any needs that may arise.

Thank you Chrysalis Awards for the recognition and to our amazing team of architects, project managers, carpenters for all their beautiful work. We also want to thank our customers for trusting us with your homes!

Wine Spectator Magazine

Drinkers Wanted
A St. Paul collector strikes a balance between refined design and grab ‘n’ go wine service

“I wanted wine around me that I like and can enjoy with other people without getting too into the library, antiquarian aspect of wine collecting,” says Tom Votel, of Sunfish Lake, Minn. “Our cellar was made intentionally small and practical. It was designed as a drinking cellar.”

On that count, the space succeeds with aplomb. The open design trades clinical glass panels and vaultlike aesthetics for an accessible, welcoming appearance, enabling an easy flow from serving station to sitting area to patios. Climate-controlled cabinets and an ingenious air-vent system moderate temperatures across the room, keeping Chardonnays racked on the left cooler than Cabernets on the right.

TreHus, the Minneapolis-based architects the Votels contracted, had constructed several traditional home wine cellars, but never anything like Votel’s horseshoe-shaped storage-and-serving hybrid facing out on a room for family gatherings and social events. “They were up for the challenge,” Votel says of TreHus. “It ended up being beautiful.”
