Ask the Expert: The Twin Cities is my main residence, but I just bought a second home. Can you work with me on an out-of-town project? How would you find people to do work there?

Absolutely! We work all over the country on second homes in other cities, winter getaways, summer homes, cabins, cottages, even camps. Many of our clients are extremely mobile, so we have developed effective communication and presentation tools to collaborate long-distance. We don’t hesitate to hop on a plane or jump in a car when face-to-face meetings are important. We have identified top local contractors, cabinetmakers, workrooms and warehouses to receive, inspect, deliver, and install furnishings in cities around the country. We provide diligent research and find the best people available to do quality work in any designated locale.
