The client's goal for their new home was to create a family gathering place for children and grandchildren, high on a wooded bluff above the Cannon River. The design of familiar traditional residential forms and pleasing outdoor spaces were specifically sited for views of the river valley and the surrounding forest. Extensive millwork and custom paneling offer sophistication, and built-in cabinetry honors a lifetime’s collection of antique furniture, table linens, and pottery. The 35 profiles create a rich interior of an older home but incorperates a modern sensibility.

"When I was growing up, my parents had a ramshackle cabin on Lake Pepin with lots of painted woodwork and bead-board. What I wanted in my new house was that childhood cabin where I spent my summers, but it needed to be bigger, more sophisticated, and cleaner in design." -owner
