Custom Homes and Renovations
EDINA • MINNEAPOLIS • LAKE MINNETONKA
We have seen a transition of design themes over the years from traditional architecture to individualized design. New materials and techniques, together with new attitudes, have opened the door to exciting new personality focused designs.
Whether building a new custom home, or remodeling an existing home, everyone wants to make their home special. However, for many owners building a custom home or starting a remodeling project can be overwhelming. Where do you start? Are there budget considerations? What about the style, design, and plans? Is the property in the right neighborhood or location to make changes that will increase its value? Are there community or homeowner association restrictions that may impact the design or plans?
Others wonder if there is a professional that they can trust who will take full responsibility for the entire project? Should you form a team? Which professionals do you need, and how do you select them?

"The 5 Simple Steps"™
Exciting design ideas drive every project. It all starts with our listening and idea session.
Schrader & Companies understands that you want your own special place that reflects your style and taste.
STEP ONE: “Let’s Talk.”™ This is a listening and idea session to establish the scope and estimated budget range for your project. Your space needs, design preferences, and personal details are all identified.
STEP TWO: “Storyboard Process,”™ This step is when your design team is selected and ideas are transformed into a preliminary schematic floor plan. Your estimated budget range is revised to reflect the accepted plan and a chart of allowances is created for the selection process that follows. Specific code or structural issues will be assessed and resolved at this stage.
STEP THREE: “Rendering to Scale,”™ is where selections and specifications are finalized to complete the bid process. A full set of construction plans are created to maximize design, innovation, and value engineering to meet your budget. Upon completion, a final construction agreement is presented for your approval.
STEP FOUR: “The Big Event,”™ is when the Schrader & Companies construction team transforms your plans into reality. Your plans are built to specifications.
STEP FIVE: “Happily Ever After.”™ Your project has been completed, on time, on budget, and Schrader & Companies has earned your 5-Star review.
