We had the opportunity to work with Jeff Dwyer to help the homeowners of the 5ive house in Minneapolis with phase 2, which was finishing their basement. This is a special home. The 5ive was the first LEED Platinum Residence (New Construction) in Minnesota. What's unique about this home is that it was built with extremely efficient insulated poured concrete walls, using T-mass construction. To show off this element, the perimeter concrete walls were left exposed. We also did not use any trim or casing on the floors and doors to match the home's very contemporary and minimal design. The doors were stained to a stain to match the finishes upstairs. The stunning red carpet matches the red color accents of the rest of the home. We are very happy with how the basement fits seamlessly with the beautiful design of the rest of the 5ive house.
