Lake Superior Home for Sale - 1424 Middle Rd, LaPointe WI 54850

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Wayzata Lakes Realty: Eric Kodner Sells Twin Cities Homes

Co-listed by Madeline Island Realty (Apostle Islands, Lake Superior - Wisconsin) and Wayzata Lakes Realty (Minneapolis & St. Paul Minnesota)

You'll also see this Madeline Island waterfront home listed For Sale on our other ActiveRain site 


So many of our Minneapolis & Saint Paul Minnesota clients also vacation on Madeline Island in the summer months (or own property there) that I like to keep them aware of what's for sale in the Apostle Islands area of Lake Superior.

This listing is a remarkably-executed renovation (not just in terms of style and design, but also structurally). The owners brought in the folks at DBS Residential Solutions, Inc. in Duluth, Minnesota to oversee the structural part of the project.

The result was sheer genius. DBS' goal was to, among other things, to install support piers and add a supplemental beam in the home's crawl space. "SmartJack" supports were installed to support the floor joist system. Engineered steel plates were also brought into the crawl space. Cross beam supports were installed between the smartjacks. The finished product was a permanently stabilized foundation and a crawlspace that was properly ventilated and floors that are leveled and strong.

In addition to the above, DBS installed a "SmartSump" pump system with a WaterWatch alarm system, installed 20 MIL CleanSpace 7-ply moisture barrier and SaniDry Sedona to keep humidity under control. The newly-completed structure/crawl space project diverts water away from the foundation and keeps the crawl space warm and dry.

These were all extensive structural improvements to the dwelling. The owners deserve credit for not just cosmetically renovating the house, but also making sure that the aesthetic improvements will last for a long time.
