Home and Garden show a showstopper

| No Comments

A 1,700-square-foot house was erected inside the Minneapolis Convention Center for the Home and Garden Show, an event that ran from late February to early March.

In a video posted to the Star Tribune's website, trees stretched to the height of the convention center, and a small pool and garden-size waterfall were together the culminating point of a stream that ran nearby.

According to Dan Frosch, builder of the house, it was designed to cater to empty-nesters. The rooms are compact and spread across one level, though nothing is cramped. The house showcased an especially beautiful, small, black and white kitchen with high ceilings.

In addition to the specially-built house, nine professional landscapers worked to contribute gardens based on movies, including Camelot and Lord of the Rings.

Chip Wade from HGTV and the Style Network's Mark Brunetz, an interior designer for that network's show, Clean House, made an appearance as well, offering their expertise in matters of design and home improvement.
