Back to the Future

Reclaiming a family home

Honoring the past today

Craig and Virginia Petermeier reclaimed Virginia's original family farm house and asked MKMH to create a new, modern new space while honoring the heritage of the home her father had built a generation before. These are the stories (and homes) we love to build.

The little things

The bright, open kitchen allows for views of the sweeping Iowa landscape. And the warm natural textures and distinctive design details welcome family and visitors to make themselves at home.

first look

Since the home had not been updated since the 90s, the Petermeiers were able to give MKMH creative freedom to make the entire space beautiful. MarcKris’ custom floor plan opened up the home, maximizing light and creating beautiful spaces for relaxing quietly on weekend, intimate conversations in front of a cozy fireplace and entertaining new generations of the family during the holidays.

infusing design into every build

It started with an MKMH custom floor plan that maximized views of mature trees and a creek, no cactus in sight.
