Cape Cod Reveal - Upper Level

Kitchen Spotlight - Independent Spaces

Some other products we used in this rebuild are a Bosch dishwasher (it's so quiet!), Amerock hardware for the cabinetry, and Hinkley light fixtures. When designing this space, the…


MADE IN AMERICA!

  Creating something beautiful and functional is always a source of pride at JP&CO. However, we had a special sense of accomplishment during this year’s Parade of Homes Showcase. This is because the refined South Minneapolis rambler we revealed was not only stunning and functional, but also constructed with more than 95% of the products used made in America.
