The Best Holiday Present Ever

Running out of gift ideas for your special someone this holiday season? Well, how about creating a perfect space just for them? With winter on the way, you may not be thinking about starting a remodeling project, but maybe you should!

Winter in Minnesota isn’t ideal for outdoor construction, so anything that breaks your home’s building “envelope” may be best left for warmer months. But building indoors during winter has lots of positives.

Choosing to build over the winter can save you both time and money. Construction slows in winter, leaving subs and trade partners looking for work — helping remodelers keep costs low and scheduling tight. Additionally, material and product prices tend to rise as construction revs up in the spring, so your dollars will go even further right now.

From finishing the basement to making use of that extra bedroom, here are a few ideas for you to give the best holiday present ever.

Man Cave Mania What husband or dad doesn’t want his own little slice of heaven? You can give him a place to relax and hang with his buddies over poker or football. Add a pub bar or maybe a climate-controlled wine cellar. If his hobbies lean more toward electronics or gaming, make sure to wire his man cave with the latest technology. And of course, these spaces are perfect for mom’s book club too.

Spa Anyone? Who doesn’t love a little pampering? How about creating the perfect spa experience right in your own home. If your master bath isn’t up to snuff, consider confiscating an adjacent bedroom to create your private spa oasis with walk-in shower complete with multiple shower heads, lights and sound. How about installing a sauna to steam away stress? And while you’re at it, build in heated floors for barefoot comfort during the coldest winter day.

Kids Korner Whether toddlers or teens, your youngsters want their own space too. How fun would it be to turn that under-stair storage into a private kids-only hideout? And teens will love bringing friends over to watch movies in the theater or play Cards Against Humanity in the game room.
