Housing Day on Capital Hill

2019 Housing Day 

When you think of home builders and remodelers, you may not think of politics. It’s also pretty unlikely that you imagine tradespeople gathering together at the Capitol. It might seem unlikely, but that is exactly what happens every year at Housing Day at the Capitol organized by BATC-Housing First MN and Minnesota Association of Realtors. MA Peterson was proud to gather with our fellow industry professionals at this year’s event on March 4th.

We spent our morning attending a rally with all the event attendees where we heard more about the issues facing housing, specifically regulatory burdens placed on builders and remodelers by cities and the state. Minnesota carries one of the highest regulatory burdens in the country making it almost impossible to build an affordable home. Unfortunately, there is not one or two large regulations that we can have reassessed, but instead hundreds of fees on each home that add up to an unrealistic amount. 

Our afternoon was spent going to our scheduled appointments with our local representatives and senators. This is a really exciting opportunity as we find ourselves in front of the people who can truly make a difference for our business and our bottom line. As we were walking around the Capitol grounds we were also happy to see so many young professionals taking part in the event, as well as more women than we have seen in the past. It was also a great excuse to ogle the amazing architecture at the Capitol building. Our inner architecture geeks were loving it.

We ended our day with a celebratory reception where we were able to connect with long-time industry friends and peers who we don’t often get to see. It is always fun to hear stories from other builders and remodelers who deal with the same challenges and have the same passions as we do here at MA Peterson. Overall, the consensus seemed to be that the event was a success and our legislators were open to supporting our issues when the time comes.

Great job to BATC-Housing First and MAR on a great event. We will be back next year!


MA Peterson Wins Two Coveted Roma Awards


Edina, MN, October 29, 2018 - The Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) has awarded two Remodeler of Merit (Roma) Awards to Edina based MA Peterson, the residential resource for design build and custom remodeling in the Twin Cities and surrounding metro area. Categories include Additions over $300,000and Bathroom over $60,000. 

Since 1982, BATC-Housing First Minnesota has presented the ROMASMAward to remodelers to recognize creativity, design, and the remodeler’s ability to meet the client’s requirements. Winners were selected by a team of remodeling professionals from the Builders Association of Sioux Falls, South Dakota after evaluating photographs, floor plans and descriptions of the remodeling project.

“We are humbled and honored to be chosen, among so many fine entries,” said Dave Peterson. “We work with clients to create custom homes and large-scale home remodels that are respectful to families, neighborhoods and communities. Our clients love their homes and as a result, remain there. For us, it’s about family values and doing the right thing every time. It’s wonderful that these homes are being recognized by BATC.” 

MA Peterson is the residential resource for design build, custom remodeling and home repair projects in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the surrounding metro area. Our team of experts provides superior craftsmanship and a passionate, relentless attention to detail in everything we do. 

About the award-winning MA Peterson projects:

Additions over $300,000

The homeowners wanted to create a unique space that captured the backyard views. We designed and built the circular porch addition with its own personal bar to meet all the homeowners’ needs as well as offering breath-taking views overlooking the lovely neighborhood creek. The airy four-season porch was designed as a place to entertain in a casual and relaxed setting. Access to the outdoors from the either side of the curved, spacious room makes enjoying all the sights and sounds of great backyard living an escape of its own.

Bathroom over $60,000 


Previously, the space was dark and congested and shared its walls with two walk-in closets that created the entry into the space. Now, the owner’s closet has its own designated area and allows for the bathroom to have more symmetry, a larger shower and toilet area, and brings in natural light above the vanity. Beautiful finishes throughout give the new bathroom space a luxurious feel and put the final touches on a completely transformed space.

Challenges and Creative Solutions: Keeping the entrance into the bathroom where it was provided a challenge during the design process. It was overcome by creating a more unique entrance into the room with two arched alcoves and cabinetry that provide symmetry and simple beauty. A new pocket door at the entrance also gives the bathroom more privacy. Another challenge was finding a way to bring in natural light without disrupting the spaces. A small window centered between the mirrors above the vanity allows for natural light to tastefully enter the space. 

The Results: A more prominent entrance into the bathroom featuring two arched alcoves provides unique design elements and better privacy. A custom-built vanity and smaller cabinets at each alcove complete with blue-tone marble tops, as well as a laundry cabinet in the toilet room, create more functional storage areas. Arched mirrors at the vanity provide consistency with the alcoves at the entrance, and a smaller window between the mirrors brings natural light into the room. An expansive blue-tiled rain shower is complete with an arched niche that matches the other arched elements in the space. Opposite the shower, a new pocket door allows access to the toilet room equipped with the hidden laundry closet.
