Three Things We Loved about the Modern French Country project – ROMA Award Winners!

Last night, we attended the BATC-Housing First Minnesota Building Industry Gala (BIG Night) Awards! Many of our team members came out for the big celebration at Mystic Lake Center, which was SO amazing as we don’t always get to spend time with each other outside of work. To say that our crew is fun is an understatement!!

About a half hour into the programming, we learned that our Modern French Country project WON a ROMA Award for Interior over $200,000! We feel so incredibly blessed to have this award. Without incredible clients like the Eichers, who dealt with a large renovation with such grace, as well as a hard-working team filled with servant hearts, awards like this wouldn’t be possible. So THANK You to all of the wonderful people who made this project happen. We are grateful for each and every one of you!

If you haven’t seen our Modern French Country project yet, feel free to flip through photos in our portfolio!

Here are three things we loved about the Modern French Country Project:

1. Working with incredible clients

This family. WOW. Can we work with them again, please?! The Eichers are your dream clients. Even when we completely demolished their kitchen, or when we decided to move the location of their dining room, they handled every step of the reno with grace and humor. We feel honored to have helped them create this new home and hope that they cherish it for many years to come.

2. Gorgeous craftsmanship

Sarah’s brother, Steve, worked incredibly hard on the details & craftsmanship of this project. He completed every aspect with heaps of love, and it shows. We are so fortunate to have his eye for special details and his penchant for high-quality execution.

3. Incorporating salvaged pieces

Back in March, we picked up many salvaged pieces on a road trip down south. Some of you may know this already, but Sarah actually went into anaphylactic shock while standing in line to purchase the fireplace near the front entryway…we are so glad that she is ok, but it sure does look stunning!

Lastly, a huge shoutout to our Trillium partner award-winner, Warners’ Stellian, for working with us to select the appliances for this home! Learn more about WS here >

Thank you again to everyone who helped make this project so special. We are humbled to have won this award and could not have done it without each and every one of you!
