STYLISH COUNTERTOPS: HOUZZ ARTICLE FEATURE

October 6, 2022

In a feature article on Houzz, Designer Morgan Froemming was interviewed for our ‘Interiors on Harbor’ project to share her insight on how she used the countertops to create a dynamic kitchen look.

Morgan Froemming stated:

“The Homeowners wanted to maintain the existing footprint of the space while getting a more functional and timeless kitchen. We reconfigured their kitchen to have a more centrally located sink and relocated their existing windows to allow for more natural light in the space. We used rich wood stains throughout the main level while still keeping the kitchen light and airy. We used the same stain color on the floor as we did on the island, but the island intentionally appears to be darker since it is a vertical plane.”

HOME REMODELING: INTERIOR MOTIVE

June 11, 2019

The owners of a traditional-style home in St. Paul, Minnesota, adore their house, but they did not care for its interior design. Built in 1909, the residence had largely been preserved over the years other than a kitchen that underwent an ill-advised remodel in the 1990s. Pickled bleach cabinetry and a dark, cramped layout inhibited the active family of five and compelled them to seek a resolution.

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.

CELLAR IN SUNFISH LAKE

May 11, 2018

This article from the Home & Garden issue of the Star Tribune tells the story of a Sunfish Lake basement that is transformed into a sophisticated wine tasting room. The owners wanted their wine room, located directly off the family room, to be a warm and inviting space that would draw in friends and for a glass of wine.

WINE SPECTATOR MAGAZINE

November 30, 2017

Our ‘Sunfish Lake Lower Level Project’ was featured in 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.”

TREHUS FEATURED ON HOUZZ AS THE ‘ROOM OF THE DAY’

December 5, 2016

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.

ISLAND OF TRANQUILITY

November, 2012

A 110 year old Victorian home needed remodeling – a new kitchen, addition, and family room. During the planning process, the owner, an avid woodworker, decided he wanted to make the island himself. The asian-influenced style of the island and other furniture he had made throughout the home was carried through to the design of the rest of the project, making it not only a beautiful, light, open space but uniquely theirs.

SPRING, SUMMER, FALL: ONE SPACE DOES IT ALL

October, 2009

 

The Southwest Journal featured this three-season screen porch in an
article by Carly Reynolds.

It’s summer and the Tait family is together in their secluded backyard porch, enjoying the evening breeze and a good book.
When fall comes they can light a fire in the stone hearth.

The Tait’s 250-square-foot three-season porch feels like a summer cabin, with exposed cedar beams and antlers set above the mantel. With the comforts of electricity, overhead lighting and a wood-burning fireplace, it’s no wonder the family chooses to spend a majority of their summer in this room.

December, 2008

 

“The competition for these awards is very fierce. I am both pleased and humbled at this show of peer recognition,” said TreHus owner David Amundson, left, at the acceptance of the COTY award for Residential Historical Renovation/Restoration in November of 2008. “I am very proud of our team of architects, interior designers and master carpenters. It’s their hard work, their thoughtful craftsmanship and passion for design as agents of beauty that continues to win awards, and, more importantly satisfy our clients.”

The TreHus COTY award winning architect is Meriwether Felt. She has decades of residential architectural experience and says she is especially proud of this Greek revival restoration entry.

TreHus was also awarded Honorable Mention for their Residential Interior Speciality entry.

Each year, Minnesota remodelers are recognized for remarkable local remodeling projects with the Contractor of the Year Award, commonly referred to as a COTY Award.

 

The COTY Awards were established more than a decade ago to foster a sense of achievement and pride among members of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and to increase public awareness of NARI professionals. Remodeling companies large and small have said that winning a COTY is a key factor in enhancing their image within the industry and with prospective customers.

Entrants were judged by a panel of remodeling professionals handpicked by a NARI of Minnesota committee. All entries are judged on functionality, problem solving, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty, and entry presentation.

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) is the only national not-for-profit association dedicated to solely promoting the remodeling industry.
