This client came to J&R Sundberg early in 2014 with plans to build a new one-level, slab home on rural Woodland Ave., Duluth. Due to a sharply sloping lot and the desire to build on the high ground – there were some challenges in fitting the driveway & house that they wanted to the site. In the course of a few iterations – we were able to come up with an in-house design that fit nicely on the lot and still stayed within the budget.
The end result is a beautiful gabled and timber traditional style home with a great Lake Superior view on an extensively landscaped hill-side that improves almost daily due to the hands-on hard work (landscaping) by the Owners. This home features polished concrete floors, dream kitchen & pantry, custom tile work, and real salvage timber beams in the vaulted Great Room and Front and Back Entrances ceilings.
