About

C&I CropCraig and Ivy Toquam have been remodeling homes in the Minneapolis/St Paul area since 1998.

Craig grew up on a farm in Southern Minnesota where he learned how to fix anything with duct tape and baling wire. Eventually his methods became more sophisticated… today he’s a licensed contractor and Realtor® with Edina Realty.

Ivy traded the sunny beaches of Southern California for a down-filled parka when she moved to Minnesota for college at Bethel University (where Craig & Ivy met). She handles the design side of our business (ie. knock this wall out, paint that door red).

Our company, 2nd Story Home, purchases homes in any condition then restores, remodels & transitions them to a new family, a new story.
