Our Story

Thirty Plus Years of Remodeling Done Right

We’ve been around more than 30 years working right here in the south metro area of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Throughout the years we’ve developed long-standing relationships with homeowners throughout the Twin Cities, but work most often in Bloomington, Burnsville, Eden Prairie, Lakeville and other “south of the river” communities.

It really says something about our work that neighbors recommend us to neighbors much as they did in the early days.

New Spaces began in 1980 as a home “handyman” service founded by Doug and Carol Nelson. As people began to use Doug’s services for larger projects – kitchen remodels, bathroom renovations, additions and finished basements – the business expanded to include the kind of home remodeling we continue to do today.

Today, the family tradition continues with the second-generation Nelson – our company president Shawn Nelson. Though he worked every job in the field during his early years, his focus for more than 15 years has been on management and creating a process that gives homeowners a way to get “new space” in their home that fits both their needs and their budget. It’s home remodeling done right.

Pictures are great but it's simply not the same as seeing our work up close and in person. Visit our next open house and see for yourself what New Spaces can do.
