People Serving People is a family focused homeless shelter that serves the greater Twin Cities area. For over 30 years, People Serving People has been helping Minnesota families get back on their feet and on the road to success. They also offer early childhood development classes and after school programs for children, as well as employment services and education for parents. The ASID Partners of Minnesota were asked to help renovate two of their classrooms for childhood development. We donated the cabinets for the classroom that store all the games and learning materials the teachers need to conduct their classes. We could not be more honored to be helping this great charity and strongly believe in its mission to help at-risk children and their families get the support they need to succeed and return to self-sufficiency.

We recently had an interesting request from a client that lives in a condo unit in downtown Minneapolis. They wanted to have built-in nightstands and upper cabinets to surround their bed as well as a new platform bed with hidden storage underneath it. We also added lots of LED lighting to the unit to make night time reading easier for them.
The client chose a Hard Rock Maple finish to match the cabinets in the rest of the condo. We made the side nightstands deeper to give enough space for their alarm clocks, phone chargers, and photos. The platform bed has 6 push to open drawers as well as a hidden compartment at the foot of the bed. An EcoResin panel, made with thatch fiber, was used to provide the finishing touch to bring the whole project together.
We had another great year for our 15th Anniversary and we would like to thank everyone who made it possible. From our customers to our wonderful employees we couldn’t have done it without you. We will be closed on Monday, January 2nd to give our employees a little extra time with our families. We hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year!
When a couple moved into a new home in Wayzata ran into one big problem. The master closet in the bedroom wouldn’t be big enough to fit both of their wardrobes in it. Luckily there was a guest room in the basement that wasn’t being used for anything and was the perfect candidate for a closet makeover. It was big enough to fit an island and had ceiling tall enough to accommodate double hanging his extra tall shirts and pants. He also had lots of ties, belts, and watches that needed to be organized.

1. Which way will the door open?
When in the planning stages its extremely important to think about accessibility and how you will enter your pantry. Sliding or barn doors will allow the most amount of space both inside and outside the pantry. Having an outward opening door will give the most amount space for shelves in the pantry but you’ll have to be sure you have enough clearance for the door to open. If you opt for an inward opening door just be mindful that you will lose some space inside the pantry to give the door enough clearance. Continue reading

Garages have become the catch-all storage place for the home. When something doesn’t have a place inside the home then it usually finds it’s way into the garage. Everything from tools and sports equipment, to memorabilia and off season clothes gets stored in the garage. With so much being stored in the garage its easy to become overwhelmed if you don’t have a sufficient storage solutions for everything. A family in Minnetonka decided enough was enough and set out to remodel their entire garage. They contacted us to design, build, and install all new garage cabinets as well as Garage Floor Coating of Minnesota to have their concrete floor resurfaced and refinished. They also had new sheet rock put in to give the garage a more finished look. Continue reading
The Artisan Home Tour by Parade of Homes is going on now through the last weekend in June. This year’s tour features 22 new and remodeled homes from some of the best builders in the twin cities. In each artisan home you can see the craft and attention to detail that goes into each home. This year we were ecstatic to be selected as the closet company for one of the homes in Edina built by our friends at Great Neighborhood Homes. The home is located at 5115 Wooddale Glen in Edina, just across the street from the Edina Country Club. The home is gorgeous and complete with 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, 4,700 square feet, and a 3-car garage. It even has a microbrewery in the basement!
We were thrilled to work with Mpls/St. Paul Magazine and ASID MN Designers for this year’s ASID Showcase Home Tour. This is our 3rd year being a part of the ASID Showcase Home Tour and each year is a little different and each home brings exciting challenges with it. This year’s home is located in Edina on Knoll Drive South, right by the lovely Bredesen Park. Dario and Jeanne Anselmo live here with their three children. The Anselmo’s wanted their new home to have a traditional flavor but with a modern twist by using modern textiles, fabrics, and textures to liven up more traditional European style furniture. We worked with ASID designers Peggy Augustine and Teresa Antonneau of Augustine Interiors on the mudroom and every closet in the house to help the Anselmo’s achieve their goal.
