The Fridley Housing and Redevelopment Authority purchased two houses for the Home Improvement Demonstration Program. These homes underwent remodeling and residents were invited to see the transformation through a series of three open houses - before, during, and after.
Unlike typical remodeling projects, these have been open to the public to demonstrate how inexpensive various home improvements can be if savvy homeowners visit the building material Reuse Center in Minneapolis or liquidators to obtain materials.
The improvements in each house serve as a roadmap for updating Fridley's housing stock. We hope the neighborhoods will experience the benefits of investing in the community for years to come. Let the Home Improvement Demonstration Program inspire and encourage you to reinvest in your home!
The city of Fridley's Housing and Redevelopment Authority purchased a 1959 rambler at 831 Mississippi Street with the intent of remodeling it. The Home Improvement Demonstration Program brought to life some of the home upgrades showcased in the HRA-developed home remodeling handbooks. View the Cape Cod and Rambler Planbook (13 MB).
