ROSEVILLE, MINN. (Sept. 2019) — For more than 20 years, the BATC-Housing First Minnesota Foundation has tapped the talents and resources of the member builders, remodelers and suppliers of the association to help those who otherwise might not have the opportunity to have a safe and affordable home. The Foundation builds, remodels and repairs homes for Twin Cities veterans and families in need, often in partnership with local charities and organizations.

Each time someone visits a Dream Home, their $5 admission supports the BATC-Housing First Minnesota Foundation’s work as it builds and renovates transitional housing facilities for Minnesota’s homeless, veterans, and others in need.

Remodeled Dream Homes are open three days only during the Remodelers Showcase: Sept. 27-29 from 12-6 p.m.

This fall’s four Dream Remodeled Homes are:

Remodeler: Nor-Son Custom Builders

Remodelers Showcase Home #R23

  • After a kitchen fire caused smoke damage throughout the home, the owners used this unfortunate event as an opportunity to fully update their 1942 home.
  • A wall between the formal and informal dining rooms was removed to create a more open living area.
  • Custom details shine in the updated dining room including enameled wainscoting and a built-in buffet with soapstone countertops.
  • A state-of-the-art kitchen with painted custom cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances, and a stained Alder island is perfect for entertaining.
  • The vaulted family room was transformed with painted shiplap siding throughout the space, giving the Cape Cod-style home a light, airy appeal.
  • A powder room was added near the back mudroom with slate tile for easy cleanup.
  • White oak hardwood floors and trim grace the majority of the home, while luxury woven vinyl flooring completes the exercise room.
  • The master suite was reconfigured by relocating the entrance to create space for a large walk-in closet and custom built-ins.
  • The new layout made way for an expanded master bathroom with a large shower and vanity, as well as a new laundry room with stacked washer and dryer, custom cabinetry, and encaustic tile.
  • Throughout this dream home, you’ll see a glimpse of the old, blending exceptionally with the new.

  • The interior style has a beachy, coastal feeling with sunny natural light, trendy shiplap walls and ceilings, and wooden beams.
  • Natural finishes like jute, sisal, grasscloth, rattan, and tumbled marble bring the design to life.
  • To bring the outdoor feeling into the sunroom, exterior materials such as bluestone floors and whitewashed cedar shakes were used inside, and the exterior stonework was repeated on the fireplace chase.
