The intent of the Rambler Revolution Demonstration Project, located at 3790 McKnight Road in White Bear Lake, was to show the public creative and affordable possibilities for renovating a post-WWII rambler. The City's hope has been that the project educated homeowners about the design, permitting and construction process. The goal has been to provide examples of how to remodel a rambler-style, three bedroom house of 1,000 sq. ft. or less by opening up the floorplan to create a spacious and inviting great room feel, with a more functional kitchen, generous master bedroom, and energy enhancements. The City held four open houses, where the public toured the home before, during, and after the improvements were made. Hopefully you were able to experience the transformation for yourself, but if not, go ahead and check out The Evolution page (see tab to the left)!
