The Schneider's

John and Cheri Schneider are building their first home - they just got married last October - but they have definite ideas about what they want. "Cheri works in commercial construction, and went to school for architecture," said John. "We both agreed we wanted a home that was 'ours,' which is why we decided to build. "We talked to several builders, but McDonald Construction was recommended to us by my uncle, who works for a company that is a supplier to McDonald. Because we are new to building, we wanted a company that we could trust," he continued. "After talking to representatives from McDonald, we went with them." "They are also active in Minnesota's Green Path program, which attracted us," said Cheri. "We toured the company's MN Green Path Model home in Woodbury before we made any plans." The house under construction - due for fall move-in - will be a five-bedroom, four-bath two-story with a walkout in Victoria. Cheri said the home will include several "green" features, including eucalyptus wood floors, low-flow and MN Green Path appliances, LED lighting and the use of fly-ash concrete."We're looking at geo-thermal heating, too," she said. The couple praised their McDonald team. "They've been very helpful and friendly," said Cheri. "They're very interested in Building Green, so they're eager to learn with us."
