Taking the plunge of putting in a pool was something that Dick and Evelyn Berger had thought about many times over the years.

“We always wanted a swimming pool, but I loved the landscaping and my Eastern Redbud trees were so beautiful that we kept putting it off,” says Evelyn, whose landscape would have to be completely remodeled—including removing her favorite trees—to accommodate a pool.

As spring arrives each year, the concept of renewal inspires new projects. Pat Eckert, of Eckert Construction, remodels homes with an eye toward conservation and energy efficiency as well as aesthetics and utility.

Two years ago, Eckert purchased an older home near downtown Rochester. It is now two delightful apartments, but when he first bought the property it was a duplex with a nearly gutted upper floor, outdated interiors and an energy inefficient infrastructure.

remodelers-cornerAs a young girl living in the Twin Cities, Cindy Rapp often visited the rural Rochester home of her aunt and uncle, Paul and Marie Hennessey.

“I remember running through the pasture, swinging on the porch swing and playing with the kitties in the barn,” Cindy recalls about the 150-year-old home her relatives owned. “My Uncle Paul would open the hatch to the cistern in the kitchen floor and tell me, ‘that’s where they throw naughty kids.’”

Nicole Curtis, host of the DIY Network’s series “Rehab Addict,” was in the right place at the right time. Reality TV was just an idea when she met a producer at the DIY Network and shared her mission to save every last old house through home restoration and preservation. Now in its third season, “Rehab Addict” features Curtis up to her neck in drywall dust and old floorboards as she curses and sometimes cries to bring new life to old homes.
