Once Moorhead residents, Mariah and Jamey Jessen loved spending their summer weekends at their Cotton Lake cabin with their three children. With plans to transform their seasonal lake retreat into a year-round lake home, they listed their Moorhead house assuming they'd have time to spare for the renovations. When the home sold immediately, they contacted architect Jan Mevold of Mevold Studio to complete the renovation of their 1940s cabin. With no less than two additions having already been done on the lake cabin, this was an architectural endeavor with jaw-dropping results.
A cousin of my husband Tate’s recently asked how long we have lived in our house. I started to say, “we just moved in last summer.” Then I paused and realized we have now been in our “new” home for two-and-a-half years. Where has the time gone? The old adage “time flies” has never been truer than it is right now as I look back over some of my favorite remodeling projects in our home.
Kelsey Morrison and her husband may reside in the F-M area, but their life-long dream has led them to Northwestern Montana. Although we don’t typically show homes from outside of our area, the Morrison's Montana vacation home happens to be primarily constructed using reclaimed wood from all over Minnesota and North Dakota.

Every great design project starts with a great consultation. After meeting with Sarah and Sean Fredricks and seeing their home, I knew this project was going to be fun and create a dramatic transformation. They loved their Charleswood home, but just desired a few updates to the overall finishes. After pulling together the finish choices and proposing them to the Fredricks, the tone was set. We would focus on a monochromatic space vying to keep each room's color and textures, warm and homey.
The Clara Barton neighborhood is known for the kindness of its neighbors, but when Air Force veteran and retired special education teacher, Steve Street moved back into his South Fargo home, little did he know he'd soon be relying on the interior design expertise of his next-door neighbor, Christy Brawner. After a kitchen sink flooded and caused thousands of dollars in damage, Street leaned on Brawner and a fellow veteran, Robert Myers of Crestview Construction, to help fix the damage and redesign the home he could happily retire to.
Ahhhhhh, a new year!
A time of fresh beginnings, positivity and resolutions. I am a big believer in setting goals, writing them down or better yet, printing them out and putting them on my bathroom wall, so I’m reminded every day of how I want to improve myself and my life.

For the Kerbers who both work in the medical field, coming home meant replacing their sterile work environment with a warmer, farmhouse-chic ambiance. Joe Kerber, a chiropractor at Strive Chiropractic and his wife Kelly, an Internal Medicine Physician at Sanford, recently completed their Krueger Construction build in the coveted Rocking Horse Farm development in South Fargo. See how this creative team was able to overrule the reigning trend of white trim and cabinets, in lieu of richer, inviting tones.
