Terra Firma, a Minneapolis, MN-based custom remodeling firm melds expert craftsmanship and green building practices into its conscientious remodeling work. Since my brother actually used to work as a finish carpenter for the firm, I've also been able to admire the firm's work up close and personal. I was recently impressed by the firm's renovation of a Lake of the Isles home. Built in 1973, the home's gloomy interior needed some major updates. All in all, Terra Firma renovated or added approximately 5,000 square feet of the home, while also completing extensive repairs on the rotted and crumbling windows and stucco. Take a look at the beautiful work the firm completed on this home.
