Well-planned and beautifully adorned lower-level spaces are more than just an extension of usable space in the home. For many, the basement is a space that represents comfort and enjoyment, a place to rewind or indulge. At Sawhill, our approach to basement finishing and remodeling is centered around the idea of creating a retreat that reflects our homeowners in the best possible way.

From unfinished blank canvases transformed with impeccable design to previously finished spaces modernized to meet the needs of growing families, Sawhill designers take great pride in cleverly addressing the unique needs of basement design including lighting, space planning and access. In today’s environment, many homeowners choose to finish or convert their lower levels into multi-functional spaces to accommodate guest retreats, wet bar and entertaining areas, game rooms, home theaters, spa-like bathrooms, home gyms and even golf simulators. Whatever your desire, our Minneapolis design team has the experience to craft a truly remarkable basement space that will enhance how you use your home for years to come.

I cannot say enough nice things about Sawhill Kitchens. We hired them in January 2020 to completely remodel our 30 year old kitchen. Sue Palmquist listened to us and designed a fabulous new kitchen that is both beautiful and more functional. She was willing to make changes that we asked for but also was willing to politely stand her ground when she felt we were asking for something that would not be ideal. And this happened because earlier in my career I worked in the kitchen industry, so I had “opinions.” We greatly respected how Sue addressed my opinions and it led to a substantially better result. Sawhill also has a fabulous team of subcontractors that are focused on delivering high quality workmanship while simultaneously treating our home with respect. Everyone should contact them if they are looking for the best people, design and workmanship.

Top notch team turned our dream into reality! Great listeners, high quality, professionalism and talent! Such nice people to work with. Even when things didn’t go as expected, they handled everything with grace and it all turned out beautiful! I think our dog misses seeing them, lol!”

We did a kitchen remodel with Sawhill and are thrilled with the results! Susan was a pleasure to work with in the design process. She gave attention to the little details that make the room super functional as well as attractive. She incorporated our input along with her professional expertise and was willing to give advice on other areas of the home as well to make everything work together. She is the best! The contractors used were also professional and did a great job. Thank you, Sawhill, for a great new kitchen!
