Madeline Chamber Music

This year, TreHus decided to sponsor Madeline Island Chamber Music’s 2018 fall fundraiser, the Chamber Music Cabaret.

This event raised funds to support scholarships and fellowships for student musicians attending the summer programming on Madeline Island. It included performances by a Madeline Island Chamber Music student quartet, as well as performances by Madeline Island Chamber Music alumni and faculty.

Madeline Island Chamber Music is devoted to educating and nurturing the next generation of musicians through concentrated study and performance of chamber music on verdant, historic Madeline Island in Lake Superior.

TreHus Legacy

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.

Decade of Excellence Award

We are incredibly honored to have won the Decade of Excellence Award presented to us by the Chrysalis Awards. It is granted to companies who have won an award in ten separate years since Chrysalis became a national competition in 2000. It’s the highest, and largest, award that Chrysalis can give.

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!

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.”

‘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.’

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.
