Town and Country Club House Tour


Fri, Jun 11th, 2010
Posted in Arts & Culture

Three Rushford residences and two Peterson Bed and Breakfast Inns will be featured on a June 27th house tour sponsored by Rushford's Town and Country Club. The Sunday afternoon tours will be conducted from 1 to 4 p.m. A $10 ticket allows entry to all five locations, with all proceeds going to support community projects. Tickets are currently available at Witt's Pharmacy in Rushford and from Town and Country Club members and will be sold June 27th at each tour location.

After floodwaters reached 18 inches on the main floor of David and Andrea Brand's home, their renovations included opening up the floor plan of that level, updating structural and electrical systems, as well as extensive remodeling of the second floor. The Brands were intentional about keeping the Craftsman/Mission style of the home, replacing a wall-mounted air conditioner with a stained glass window and installing compatibly-styled light fixtures, cabinetry, and a wooden staircase. A number of pre-flood items were restored and added to the home's décor; a former transom window now serves as a decorative shelf. Visitors will notice extensive landscaping, done soon after the house was purchased from Scotty Hoegh's family and re-done and expanded following the flood.

Roger and Marcia Colbenson replaced their flood-devastated family home at 308 N. Maple St. with a Craftsman-style home, a style popularized in the early 1900's. It was designed and built by their son, Derek, with ideas and construction assistance from his parents. Complete adherence to the Craftsman style is evident in the wall colors based on natural earth elements, the window placement and style, the cherry-stained quarter-sawn white oak woodwork throughout the house, and the radius curves at each corner of the sheet-rocked walls. Craftsman-style furnishings and accessories complete the décor. A geo-thermal heat pump and in-floor heating supply economical comfort throughout each season.

Plans and preparations for Glen and Tish Kopperud's home in South Rushford spanned at least 15 years. The overriding concern was elevation, since the property is located near the Root River and on the site of an old canal. Glen's father, Norman, worked for three years filling in the low-lying area with dirt from his adjacent fields, insuring that the house is at the level of the dike system that surrounds Rushford. The family planted thousands of trees and maintained the park-like property where both Glen and .....
