  1. It has been fun watching your design career blossom over the years. Your attention to detail is magnificent, something that is lacking in so many homes. Your features are always creative, yet functional, obviously much thought is put into everything. My frustration is that I want to move into every home you do!


  2. Your home and interior designs are truly inspiring. I especially love your Asian/Prairie Style Home with its naturally beautiful and serene-feeling interior spaces. Can you tell me what the flooring is used in the living room? Also, do you have any current models that are open to the public? Thank you.


  3. Maureen,

    Thank you for visiting the site and finding inspiration!

    The flooring you see in this home is Rustic American Cherry, an absolutely gorgeous wood. There is little waste in using the rustic woods as every part, including any remnants are used from the tree. This home design was built ‘green’ following the MN Greenstar guidelines for a silver certification.

    If you’re interested in designing thoughtfully and building wisely, get in touch or, visit the Mn Greenstar website at They have a wealth of information.

    Thank you!


  4. Jim,

    Your talent in home design, space utilization and attention to details always amazes me. Seeing the work you do with new construction and remodels truly reflects a unique and natural gift.


  5. I have to say, IMPRESSIVE! Not many homes that I have viewed will wow me like the ones that Jim Kuiken has designed both inside and out. It’s an honor to know such a great talented individual.


  6. Jim,

    We are thrilled to have received your name as a recommendation to work with for interior and exterior design. We have been extremely happy with the results thus far and are excited to continue to work with you on our home inside and out! We’re so thrilled that your design aesthetic melds so well with ours. You’ve brought so many fabulous ideas to our home which we could never have achieved on our own.

    Thank you for your continued creativity and hard work.

    The Quirk Family


  7. Thank you for showing me your home. You do an exceptional job with your designs. The wine tasting room was very original. Something I have not seen before.


    1. It was a pleasure meeting you and showing you this particular home. The project was a very rewarding challenge for both myself and the home owners. Watch the site for the newest urban design, available mid September.
