A stand-out home on the HBA's Fall Parade of Homes, this Epic Homes masterpiece, located in The Wilds subdivision, is a must-see if you're in the market for a new home. Epic Homes may be newer to the area, but they've quickly made a name for themselves with top-notch craftsmanship and a unique spin on finishes. Mix in a partnership with architect Jan Mevold of Mevold Studios and they've got themselves a recipe for success. After originally building custom homes in Western North Dakota, see how this young team is now spreading their wings on the other side of the state.
On a quiet, picturesque street near the Fargo Country Club, you'll find a Mediterranean-styled home that's recently received a contemporary overhaul. A beautiful home with great bones, the homeowners worked closely with Dan Elton of Chris Hawley Architects, to fuse the original home's style with their own more contemporary style. Revamping the layout meant creating a space that would be a perfect fit for their family of five.
Just over the Horace bridge to the west of the Sheyenne River, is 220 acres of land that has been treasured by the Samuelson family for six generations. Nestled on the riverbank, the Samuelson's 1889 homestead is part of the landscape that includes an abandoned river bed which is nothing short of postcard perfection. Jack and Rachel (Samuelson) Dwyer moved into the original homestead in 2009 after purchasing the home and part of the land from Rachel Dwyer's grandmother, Sherry Samuelson. Like many family members before them, the Dwyers and their four kids eventually outgrew the home. Wanting t…
Have you ever been to a live auction and wondered what it would be like to attend one of the elite dinners that are often up for bid? This Fall, we were invited to the beautiful, Sheyenne River home of Vonda and Jim Leiner to get a glimpse inside their authentic, Italian, wood-burning pizza party. This event was donated by the Leiners on behalf of Make-A-Wish, North Dakota at the 2017 Wine & Wishes event held this past Spring. Casting the winning bid, Angela and Joe Kolling had a reason for supporting this cause that was close to home. In 2009, their own daughter Morgan was once the recipient…
This month, I challenged myself to create a Fall-inspired tablescape, amidst the vibrant colors of the historic Ivers building in Downtown Fargo. In a setting like this, there was no shortage of inspiration. To complete the tablescape, I gathered a couple of dear friends that I'm thankful for and asked them to be my guest in a bit of festive, Fall dining.
With Midwest Nest's first issue hot off the press, we wanted to properly thank those that have supported our vision from the very beginning. So, in celebration, we gathered our team, family and friends to toast to a successful first month, sharing ideas for many more to come.
Thanksgiving is not too far away, and that means it’s time to start menu and table- setting prep. Thanksgiving is about tradition and we all have our go-to recipes, but sometimes a little refresh is in order. With a small twist on tradition, those classic cranberries, stuffing, turkey and green beans will reach a whole new level of tastefulness. For some, it is hard to stray from the typical Thanksgiving menu, but this menu is simply taking a different approach to classic dishes. Perhaps finding a new family favorite dish is simply adding a small twist on traditional dishes.
Leave it to the art community to create an event pairing food, wine and a tour of three amazing homes, all in the same night. The 2nd annual Progressive Architecture Tour from Plains Art Museum took place on September 23 and walked guests through three homes of area architects and owners to share their stories and insights about the making of their dream homes.
If you watched the MTV Movie Awards last year or love to shop sites like Etsy or Amazon, you may have seen my work. My name is Christy Remmick. By day, I design and manufacture custom bags with my company Rilos & MiMi. Taking a break from designing bags and working with fabrics, I decided to accept a new challenge and design and manage a complete first-floor remodel of my home. Having just moved from Grand Forks to Devils Lake, N.D., amidst a slow real estate market, our new home had plenty of potential projects. We started in January this year and gave ourselves only three months to complete …
