home design

How we get there is unique. We know building code, we know costs, we know design. Knowledge in all three is critical to creating a personalized home within your budget. As we partner with each client, it is our goal to get creative and make sure you think about your space in a way you never imagined.

The Design Process


step 1

Meet & Greet

We love to meet people starting the renovation or home building process so we offer an initial meet & greet. We begin by listening to you and learning what you want to achieve  with your home.  We share a little bit more about us, and how we help clients make their project a reality.


step 2

Concept Planning

Next, we measure the house and start getting creative! We come up with a concept plan, blending your needs and our expertise. You know what you want and we make the vision happen.


step 3

Detailed Planning

This is the most important step in your whole remodel or building process. Taking time to work through all the design details is worth it.  Our clients have fewer spec changes and a smoother construction phase because all our construction documents and design details clearly communicate all facets of the project.

our focus

We are a Minneapolis based design studio bringing an architectural focus to residential remodeling and new construction.  We want your home to make a positive impact on your daily life for years to come.

Creating healthy homes is a clear initiative for us. This is as simple as creating vibrant spaces flooded with daylight in the design phase, to making design selections and mechanical choices that make a big impact on your indoor air quality.

As we select all that goes into your home, we love to recommend products that are practical.  Everything must be durable, easy to clean, and can take a beating from pets and kids.  That’s life —  but we want your home to look fantastic for many years to come.

Slide JP&CO Homes - Living Room “JP&CO. stuck to their timetable and to the budget. They kept us informed of the progress and because of the thoroughness of the original plan, changes, as the project progressed, were minimal.”

Slide “Our kitchen is simultaneously functional and lively while the bathrooms and paint combinations are relaxed and comfortable. For the level of expertise and knowledge they bring, they are still open, engaging and among the finest to work with.”

Slide From the beginning Pete, Samantha and their whole team worked diligently with us to make our unique requests a reality. They provided us with options that stayed within our budget, and their subcontractors exceeded our expectations in the craftsmanship of their work, and as we wrapped up, the entire team meticulously reviewed every last detail with us to make sure the space was absolutely perfect.
