TAKE A GANDER AT SOME OF OUR WORK
At Charlie's Angles, it's been our goal from the start to please our customers, so we can provide you with a long list of excellent references. We’ve been in business for over nine years and have completed over seven hundred projects for hundreds of happy customers. You name it, we can build it, fix it, remodel it, restore it. Here’s a small sampling of just some of our work. Stop back again to visit as we build our web site's photo gallery.

HISTORICAL RESTORATION
This beautiful home (the original construction dated back to the late 1800s) is located in an historic St. Paul neighborhood. The house was purchased by an investor and was in rough shape when we arrived. Working within a tight budget and the historical society standards, we went to work restoring the beauty and character of this home.

We replaced the siding and roofing; rebuilt the front stoop; installed new porch footings and reframed the porch structure; replaced the old porch floor with tongue and groove flooring; restored windows, and shored up the structural integrity of the balcony; added custom trim and millwork detail throughout and dealt with deteriorating interior walls. Our part in the project was completed for under $50,000 and the house now has a whole new life to live.
A CAR COLLECTOR'S DREAM
This nine-stall garage with upper level office and bathroom was the realization of the homeowner's dream space for his prized vintage and sports car collection.

Using natural materials, which was key to the homeowner's vision, we installed cedar shingle sidewalls and roofing, along with natural stone wainscoating. It was a heavily treed area and the structure was thoughtfully positioned to save the trees and maintain the beauty and privacy they brought to the landscape.
RETREAT IN THE CITIES
To create a sense of rustic, casual living in the cities, this house on Lake Minnetonka received a whole new exterior facade.

The homeowner was a busy, single doctor whose house was his place of serenity. A walk out the front door brought in views of the lake. The interior renovations had already been completed, so it was time to have the outside match his intentions.

The owner wanted to work with one contracter, who could coordinate everything from start to finish, so Charlie's Angles was hired for the job. We installed a new roof, new cedar shingle sidewalls, natural stone wainscoating and a gorgeous cedar garage door.

The homeowner absolutely loved the work and one of his neighbors ended up undertaking an almost identical project with their home.
MAKING A HOME YOUR HOME
In today's real estate market, it makes sense to consider if the house you're in can be made into the home you'd like to stay in for the long haul. This Eagan family didn't like the look and feel of their house and thought about moving, but chose to stay instead and build in the charm they wanted.

We brought in low-maintenance James Hardy siding; 30-year asphalt shingles on the roof; all new clad windows with low-maintenance outside frames and all natural wood interiors. We restored the brick and reused bricks from other parts of the house to create columns for their new front stoop and an overhang that created a front porch entryway. We also added a third stall to the garage so the homeowner would have a place to house his sportscar and motorcyle.

A two-season, all-cedar porch with two skylights was built - screened in all sides and under the floor so no bugs could invade their new backyard retreat. Charming exterior light fixtures and a new concrete driveway with a stamped red brick border completed this picture-perfect house. They love it there now and plan to stay for a long time to come.
