OUR AWARD-WINNING TEAM

The Scherer Bros. team has won more Trillium awards than any other closet company in the Twin Cities.

OUR DESIGNERS

You will love working with our designers. They make the whole process fun. It’s probably because they love their jobs. Who wouldn’t, when they get to use their talents every day, creating beautiful spaces and changing lives for the better?

Kristi Gongoll, Designer

A closet designer since 1999, Kristi loves collaborating with her clients and the challenge of turning a blank space into one that is both functional and beautiful. Finding the best storage solutions, all while staying within a builder’s budget allowances, is a balancing act she deftly manages every day. She is her son’s biggest cheerleader at his basketball and baseball games, and when he zips past with his mountain bike team. Kristi enjoys yoga, boating, and mountain biking. She recently adopted a little Maltese-Yorkie mix named Tooty.

LOCAL MANUFACTURING

After your design is finalized, skilled artisans build your custom storage solutions locally, at our shop right behind our showroom, in Brooklyn Park. This convenient location creates efficiency. When our designers have a unique idea for customizing a client’s project, they can simply walk over to the shop and brainstorm with a team leader in manufacturing. And if, in a year or two, you decide you want to add an extra shelf in your closet, you can call your designer and pick up the new component within a short period of time since we manufacture our own products, locally.

EXPERT INSTALLATION

Installation is included with all of our storage solutions. Our dedicated installers are not contract employees, but part of our team at Scherer Bros. They’re the best in the business, and work on high-end homes throughout the Twin Cities area. If you’ve built a home before, you know that the closets are the last thing to go in, after the painting, trim work, and carpeting is complete. Our installers work with diligent care not to damage all this freshly completed work. They will install your storage solution to perfection, and then clean up when the job is done. When your closets are finished, your home feels like it’s complete.

You dream it. We build it!
