Minneapolis Prairie Kitchen Remodel
Home Portfolio, a great online ideabook for prospective remodelers, recently reprinted a short article from Traditional Home magazine on a particularly succesful Prairie-style kitchen remodel. Skip and Michelle Liepke's 1915 Minneapolis bungalow was, upon their 1991 movein, outfitted with an authentic but not tremendously usable period kitchen, complete "with harvest gold applicanes." The update addresses flow and use issues and enunciates the period feel of the home. Minneapolis architect Joe Metzler designed and built the all new and very attractive room; additional photographs are available on his site.
