Two Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity homes were featured in this year's Minneapolis St. Paul Home Tour. Not only was the tour a great way to show off the homeownership program at Twin Cities Habitat, but each each house was staged with furniture commonly found from Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore in New Brighton and Minneapolis.

Amazing! We are blown away by all of the creativity and upcycling expertise in all of the entries for the Earth Day Upcycle Challenge! Many chairs were transformed into something totally new, were given a new purpose, and some were even brought back to life. The essence of ReStore and Earth Day has definitely been captured in this competition! Congratulation to all who participated!
Without further ado, here are the winners!

Earlier in January, a mother-daughter duo invited the ReStore team for a tour and luncheon at their recently “ReStored” home. Lovingly named “Vita Huset,” which means “white house” in Swedish, Marie (mom) and Kari (daughter) spent countless hours hunting, buying, building, and transforming a home in Corcoran. With a little help from their handyman Ray and items from ReStore, estate sales, and other second-hand sales, they beautifully brought this old 1956 home back to life!
When it came time for the EagleCrest community in Roseville to embark on a remodel project, the residents wanted to make sure things didn’t get thrown away during construction. This would make for a perfect partnership between Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore and Presbyterian Homes, the parent company of EagleCrest.
