The Dream:

Kyle Rudolph, a 10-year NFL tight-end for the Minnesota Vikings, along with his wife Jordan, are committed to raising their four children in Minnesota, the state they love. Inspired by the architecture they've seen in California, and the glistening waters of Lake Minnetonka, they set out to build their custom, comfortable, modern-farmhouse-style home.

It’s no easy feat to incorporate seven bedrooms, a bunk room, theater, fitness room, sport court, and plenty of gathering spaces into a home that feels comfortable and not mansion-esque.

With a collaborative team, structural expertise, and architectural finesse, we excavated thirty feet below the driveway to make this one-of-a-kind custom home feel welcoming to its happy owners and visitors from the first approach. This “come-on-in” feeling instantly transitions to “stay-awhile” as the easy comfort unfolds after stepping inside.
