Sunday Saves: Our Favorite Things

Week of December 7th, 2020


Another week, flew by. Our team is busy wrapping up three client projects and we cannot wait to show you the finished product in the New Year. #PrincetonAve, #WhitegateLane (phase II), #EleventhAve and maybe a sneak peek behind #30thAvenue. Sharing a recap of 'other news' this week as well as a few of our saves that continue to fuel us each week.

Preparing For a Wood Wall Install

We've received all of the reclaimed timbers for the Kath House in our cabinet shop, supplied by Manomin Resawn Timbers. But first, a time lapse capturing some of the prep here by Jesse and Charlie. Always important to paint your base layer a dark color, wood shifts and a white wall will be visible in some areas.



Bayard Avenue Preview

Our design team is always weeks, if not months ahead of the field crew. Bayard Avenue, which we kicked off in November, has been many months of planning. We're sharing a behind the scenes look into the design inspiration here. A second story addition in St. Paul with a new owner's suite (bedroom, walk in closet and bathroom). Timeless and neutral color palate with selections to honor this homes original character.

Favorite EASY One Pot Dishes

Sharing a few life saving quick and easy dinner recipes our family loves this time of year. Sunday's remain our day of prep and planning for the week, a quick menu and ingredient list sent off to an online service for shopping and delivery helps with meal time planning. Since we've paired down for the winter living in my niece's home (while ours is under construction) I am only using this ONE cookbook from Half Baked Harvest.
