A 1922 Prairie-style home renovation in St. Paul, Minn., manages to be historically inspired without resorting to imitating the past.
This 1922 Prairie-style house in Saint Paul needed a complete remodel to restore its historic details and improve the layout and function of the first floor.
A new light fixture and refinished cabinetry uplifts the dining room.
Designer David Heide's 360 sq.ft. addition to the rear of the house includes the new kitchen, mudroom and powder room.
The remodel included opening up a second floor room to create an informal library/family room. Removing the wall also brings more light into the stair hall area.
Heide converted the former kitchen into a breakfast area. The granite countertop in the kitchen extends to the built-in storage in the breakfast room.
The new powder room has a custom vanity designed by Heide.
The outdoor living space has screened windows.
The roof pitch on the summer house matches the existing house.
A new summer house complements the main residence. The structure provides a focal point for the backyard and rear entry, which the homeowners and guests use on a regular basis.
