New Home Building

It’s that time of year again! The Fall Parade of Homes is right around the corner. This year’s tour features 390 newly constructed homes throughout the Twin Cities metro by some of the finest homebuilders in the state! Here are a few reasons why you should attend the Fall 2015 Parade:

Get Inspired!

One of the best reasons to tour the Parade of Homes (POH) is to gain insight and information on the latest trends in home layout and interior design. Perhaps there is a room in your home that needs remodeling, or you are simply bored with the way your living room is decorated. The POH is a great way to get inspired! Our custom Kootenia model is a gorgeous reflection of the latest trends in the home industry. With 4,600 finished square feet, this home is built on a gorgeous walkout lot in the Rapp Farm neighborhood of North Oaks. Enjoy stunning views of a natural pond from the beautiful cedar deck or screened porch. Since more and more people are building homes with outdoor spaces, Kootenia utilizes the latest advancements in materials and technology to make the most out of outdoor spaces, even in Minnesota! This home features EZ screens, which transforms the typical screened porch into a fully enclosed room, allowing greater use throughout the year! From patios to living rooms, the leisure life is moving outdoors, and homes with any type of alfresco area will ultimately rank higher in both luxury and resale.

Homeowners are also becoming more aware of their effect on the environment, opting for homes built with materials that better sustain the earth. In recent years, the demand for reclaimed materials has increased considerably. The most popular features among these environmentally conscious homebuilders are reclaimed wood beams, flooring and doors. Our model contains each of these elements. The main level has an open floor plan with intricate reclaimed wood beamed ceilings, wide wood plank flooring, and solid core Masonite interior doors. The arched stone detailed walls, custom built-in cabinetry, and enameled millwork creates a stunning space that reflects the highest in quality craftsmanship. The wood beaming spans across the entire great room into the kitchen, an exquisite touch and a must see. The kitchen contains an extra large stainless steel refrigerator and a walk-in pantry, while a private library is situated off the back staircase.

The upper level contains more than just bedrooms. In fact, a second family space, wet bar, and laundry room are all on the upper level. These are other popular home trends, especially upstairs laundry. The top level rounds out with 4 bedrooms, including a spectacular owners AND guest suite. The lower level is finished and contains another bedroom, bathroom & fireplace, with a rec room, wet bar, and lots of storage.

See & Hear Exciting Opportunities!

Inspiration aside, tour our custom home in North Oaks and learn a little bit more about our process! At Kootenia we believe that customization is key. Unlike many homebuilders, no 2 Kootenia Homes are alike. There are no cookie cutter blueprints to choose from; your home is 100% customized to suit the needs of you and your family. Work closely with David Frosch, the owner of Kootenia Homes, and the Kootenia design team throughout the entire process. Even if you have no idea what type of home or design you want, our team is ready and willing to help. Together we will sit down and listen to who you are, learn about your taste, your style, and come up with 3D designs that bring concepts to life. Live your life in the home you’ve always wanted with Kootenia!
