Living Well with Teens
By Fran Howard
When Ryan and Leslie purchased their east Edina home in 1999, they had a toddler and a second child on the way. The three-bedroom, four-level split home worked well even after their third child was born-but only for a while.
“The three bedrooms were adjacent to each other and the bathroom was in the middle. It worked great when the kids were little, but when they became teenagers, it was not so good,” says Ryan. The lack of privacy, a leaky pipe in the main bathroom, and a mal-functioning 1980s-era kitchen convinced them they had to do something.
After talking to a couple of remodelers, Ryan and Leslie were no further along in deciding whether to just fix the bathroom or tackle a kitchen remodel as well. They even considered buying a new home or tearing down their existing home and building new. It wasn’t until they visited a nearby model home by TJB Homes and talked to Jason Budzynski, who heads up the firm’s remodeling division, that they received some direction. “We loved him from the get-go,” says Leslie. “He was throwing out ideas right on the spot.”
TJB’s solution was to add another level to the home for a new owners’ suite, reconfigure an office, the kitchen, and the living area, replace the deck with a four-season porch, and add an open front porch. The additions gave the family an extra 840 square feet, and the reconfiguration provided everyone with their longed-for privacy. The couple’s two daughters, ages 16 and 12, who are like Oscar and Felix according to their mother, now each have a bedroom of their own, and their 17-year-old brother no longer shares a bathroom with his parents.
“The kids are so happy, and the upstairs is lovely,” says Leslie, who enjoys everything about the new and reconfigured spaces. Ryan is thrilled with his new owners’ suite sauna, and they both are pleased with how the process went. “The experience we had with TJB was phenomenal,” says Leslie. The family moved out August 16 and back into their remodeled home December 9.
“TJB was on time, professional, and personal,” adds Ryan. “They have good subcontractors and a good rapport with those subcontractors.”
