At Northstar Granite Tops, we are very proud that we were able to be a part of the KARE 11 Backyard remodeling project. Last night, KARE 11 revealed the finished backyard on the 5 o’clock news. We were happy to supply granite and labor for the granite countertops to help complete this project.
KARE 11’s Backyard took about 6 months to plan and 10 weeks to complete. The design was chosen by KARE 11 viewers. The KARE 11 Backyard has been used for more than 30 years as part of news broadcasts. Now that it’s been remodeled, the team hopes to use it as everything from a backdrop to a set. Many cooking features and weather segments will take place in this newly enhanced area.
The redesigned space features a pondless waterfall, stone walkways, a pergola, seating areas, an outdoor fireplace and, most notably, an outdoor kitchen! The Northstar Granite Tops team installed the granite countertop at the bar-style seating area. The outdoor kitchen also features a grill to cook food and a stainless steel refrigerator.
As members of the Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC), we were approached to be a part of the project. BATC was responsible for planning and gathering the companies that would help to complete the backyard remodel. Each fall, BATC hosts the Parade of Homes. The KARE 11 Backyard is entry 11 this year, which people can stop by to tour every Saturday in September from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Congratulations to KARE 11 and everyone who played a part in this remodeling project. It was a fun project and we can’t wait to see it on the news regularly.
