Sauna Life…

Beyond pleasure and relaxation, emerging evidence suggests that sauna bathing has several health benefits. The only Finnish word to make it into everyday English is “sauna”. This bathing ritual has been performed across Finland for thousands of years, ever since the first settlers dug a ditch in the ground and heated a pile of stones. […]

Duluth Forest Kinderhaus

Knutson had the privilege of working on the Duluth Forest Kinderhaus project. The founder of the forest kindergarten wanted an open concept “classroom” area inside with a large outside classroom area as well. The mission of the school was to provide an outdoor base primary education for 4-6 year old that weaves academic learning with […]

“RUSTIC” STYLE OFFICE MAKE OVER

Recently we did an office crash at Minnesota Coaches. The client wanted a elegant office that made a statement to their clients. KCC came up with a reclaimed barn wood idea but unfortunately the budget wasn’t going to let us do that. So we ordered 1×12 rough sawn lumber from H&H lumber in Superior ( […]

GARAGE TURNED SAUNA

“I have always wanted a sauna in my house” was what one client came to Knutson Custom Construction with and a sauna she got. They had an old garage/basement space that they wanted to turn into their dream sauna. Since they knew everyone in their family (including their children) were going to use the space they […]
