For $60, today's Groupon gets you a custom kitchen or bath redesign package, including two designer consultations, a 3D rendering with CAD software, and materials and labor estimates (up to a $250 value) from Castle Building & Remodeling. This Groupon is valid at two locations in Minneapolis and in St. Paul.
Castle Building & Remodeling transforms unsatisfactory interior spaces into resplendent rooms through a transparent and thorough design process. Each rebuild commences with a home visit by a designer, who takes careful measurements of the kitchen or bath and quizzes the client about his or her preferences. Back at Castle's studios, 3D CAD software models the space and produces detailed, easy-to-understand cutaway views of the proposed renovations, so designers can reliably estimate the cost of materials and labor for the project. During a second studio meeting, clients review the design and decide on a plan that fits their budget. Although this deal is only valid for the planning process, the price of your Groupon purchase will be applied toward project costs if you decide to follow through with the proposed upgrades.
Castle Building & Remodeling
Castle Building & Remodeling, one of Remodeling magazine’s Big 50 of 2011, hosts a team of professional designers and builders who overhaul interiors with historically inspired concepts. Two design-selection studios display the custom craftsmanship, showcasing a 1940s–style kitchen with cherry cabinets and a 1910s–style bathroom with hex tile flooring and a sink full of Teddy Roosevelt's mustache trimmings.
The remodelers create a mockup of each project using 3-D CAD software, noting any desired changes before installation. They realize projects with the help of artisanal manufacturers such as Clay Squared, whose artists craft custom ceramic tiles using time-honored methods.
