The Dream:

What an honor it has been for us to work with Chad and Jenni Greenway on multiple custom home projects. Their previous L. Cramer home was one they loved—with one exception we couldn’t remedy—it was a mile or so short of being on Lake Minnetonka. When they found the perfect lot with ample Wayzata Bay Lake shore, we got to work to build the farmhouse chic, white shingle-style, casual, and generously spaced home to accommodate their active, energetic family.

Accommodating a large family on a signature Lake Minnetonka site requires a careful architectural sensitivity.

In collaboration with Murphy & Co, we worked to ensure this classic white traditional home nestled comfortably into its setting. Our savvy clients, having been through custom construction with us before, brought their sophisticated design style to the table, making it a joy to punctuate a white palette with color pops, hand in hand with the seasoned expertise of O’Hara Interiors.

"My wife and I have built two homes with Greg, the best in the business... Greg's carpentry/construction background gives him the ability to show any mockup, sample, or option necessary on site almost instantaneously.

The biggest difference we have seen with L. Cramer and some of the other big builders is that this project is personal. Greg won't just sign the contract and walk on to the next project—he will be boots on the ground working to make it happen. we so highly recommend their work."
