Orono Total Remodel Project Featured in the December Issue of Lake Minnetonka Magazine

Excelsior Design Group did a Total Remodel in Orono. They converted the home into a quaint, farmhouse with elegant interior touches.

When lake-area residents Randy and Shelly Chesley first laid eyes on the home in the Casco Point neighborhood of Orono, they knew right away it was their dream house.

“When we came driving by, it just stood out to me like that’s where I needed to live,” Shelly says. “It reminded me of a farmhouse, but it wasn’t too country.”

The home’s quaint, farmhouse feel and elegant interior touches are the handiwork of Jeff Danberry of Danberry Building Corp.

Excelsior Design Group was featured in the Star Tribune!

The story featured a Tonka Bay kitchen makeover inspired by mid-century modern roots. 

The home was originally designed and built by architect Jackson Griswold in 1956 on a wooded bluff in Tonka Bay. Griswold raised his family there and stayed until he died in 2008. The architect was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright.

The homeowners were looking for a contractor that could help them convert their dreams a building a practice lake home, ideal for the pro fisherman on Lake Minnetonka into reality. They wanted a cozy home for family gatherings while also keeping the ability for resale an option.

This home, a fish house for pro fisherman Ted Capra, inspired local authors and publication, Tonka Times.

“I waited several years to find the right time and the right lot to build my lake home. After interviewing several contractors I turned to Jeff because he was able to take the plans that I had spent years working on and design something that fit my needs while also keep an eye on resale.  I was impressed with his expertise and knowledge of Orono’s zoning regulations.  In the end, we partnered together to build the lake home of my dreams.”
