www.paradeofhomes.orgParade of Homes Remodelers ShowcaseSM|19Now it is their new Tuscan room, their favorite gatheringplace situated beneath the new lake room upstairs. Massivestone arches frame a light-filled, breezy open room, anchoredat one end by a gas fireplace. It's simple, elegant, and comfort-able almost any day of the year.The major remodeling finished up in October, with Amekcoming back this summer to update the kitchen. The six-plusmonth project was arduous, yet the family took everything instride. "I knew we were in a big project when I came home oneday and walked into our bedroom and the entire wall wasgone," laughed Mark. "I just stood there and looked, it wasopen air, and of course, it was about 95 degrees that day."Mark did admit the process was easier on him, being atwork all day. And Pam gets a bit philosophical when she talksabout the experience. "It was actually a really positive journeyfor us. Paul Schmidt, AMEK co-owner who was our projectsuperintendent, kept saying it was going to be beautiful, every-thing was going to be fine. I just believed it. I really trustedthem."requires a firewall be built between each floor, which reduces the odds thata fire will spread from floor to floor. Despite having endured the trauma of fire, Cindy and Ron slept sound-ly the first night in their new home. "We spent a year in a rental about fourblocks from the house," Ron says. "I could stand in the middle of the bath-room and touch all four walls. The first night in our new house was likebeing in heaven."taking." The pool required separate mechanicals with a heater and air-exchange system.The family moved into its remodeled home in March 2010. Anne andLance now have the perfect set up. They relax and play with the kids in thelarge new family room, but entertain and enjoy adult companionship in thehome's formal living and dining rooms. And the family continues to enjoythe city life, riding bikes and scooters around the lakes, throwing fishinglines into Lake of the Isles, paddling the lakes in canoes, playing ball on thesoccer fields across the street, grabbing a bite to eat in uptown, or headingoff to a play, concert, or sporting event in nearby downtown. »COVER STORY CONTINUED FROM PG 7 »OUT OF THE ASHES CONTINUED FROM PG 9»THE CITY LIFE CONTINUED FROM PG 10visit us online atPARADEOFHOMES.ORGSaturday, Sept. 18Top 10 Common Kitchen DesignMistakesIncludes: NKBA guidelines for kitchendesign, including code issues on electricaland ventilation.
