Happy New Year, Happy New Home Gym!

Happy New Year, Happy New Home Gym!

The first thing on everyone’s minds as the New Year starts is health and fitness. Whether we overstuffed ourselves during the holidays or we just want to become or stay active, we all feel inspired.

At Great Neighborhood Homes, we take the family’s lifestyle into consideration during our design process.  Most of our families want us to design and create a home gym for both parents and kids.  Whether we are building a sport court, free weight room, or wishing to make sure you have a sauna close by, we will be sure to think of everything.  We can personalize anything in your custom home in Edina and the Minneapolis Lakes area!  Here is a list of a few items to include in your new custom home gym.

Sport Courts


This floor is personalized with the Villanova logo, since both owners attended Villanova.





The stripe along the wall is the same color as the Finnish Flag.



This Sport Court is painted green for Edina Hornets.

Music and Television



Whether you want to watch the Wild Hockey game or your favorite exercise video, being entertained on your 4 mile run is essential.  Music pumped through the room is another way to either stay motivated or relax while practicing your yoga poses.

Treadmill, Cardio-Strength Training Machines


This gym has a rowing machine along with a treadmill. We also incorporated other options for free weights and cross training.  The owner wanted to workout with a variety of movements for strength training.


This room has a clean and simple approach and can be designed into the home from the beginning of the design and build process or can be added later to an extra bedroom.

Steam Shower


The homeowner of this custom home in East Edina wanted to have access to a steam shower close to the lower level workout room.  The floor to ceiling tile makes this hidden spot a steamy sanctuary.

At Great Neighborhood Homes, we build a small amount of homes each year in Edina and the Minneapolis Lakes area to be sure that we are building them the right way with the customer’s needs coming first.  We use the finest quality building products from start to finish.  If you dream up an idea, we can make it happen. We want you to love being in your new home and spending time with your family the way your family lives.

We are gearing up for the New Year and would love the chance to meet you and your family to talk about building a home for you in your favorite old neighborhood.  Call Scott today at 952-807-8765 or email him at scott@greatneighborhoodhomes.com.  Happy New Year!
