Meier Companies teams up with local interior designers


When it comes to new home construction, there are many facets from the beginning to the end of a custom design home project. From laying the foundation to choosing the right light fixtures for the space, there are alot of heads working to make everything come together smoothly, correctly and beautifully. As the housing market surged in 2020, regardless of the virus effecting the world, Meier Companies brought on two local designers to help cater to clients during their new custom design home build.

Meet the Designers

Aaren Reidel of Winona and Allison Jensen of Rochester came to The Stagecoach Studios, a local interior design firm that has partnered with Meier Companies to work directly with clients designing and building their home. They have developed a process to create a seem-less experience for every client, helping them along the path of building their custom design home. Each client has their own designated designer to collaborate with, design with and ask questions to along the way. From reviewing blueprints to helping select finishes for the project, they are with them every step of the way making the home building experience more comforting and fulfilling.

Aaren Reidel

Aaren came to Meier Companies after being employed at the local HOM furniture in Rochester.
She got her Bachelor of Interior Design from the University of Wisconsin Stout and has 9 years in the interior design industry. Aaren grew up in a family that built homes that allowed her to be creative from a young age and think 3 dimensionally to turn ideas into finished projects. With that upbringing she now helps clients who are building their home to take a vision of their style and bring it to life. Aaren is always pushing her design creativity, exploring innovative design ideas and the latest home products to make the client’s home the best it can be.

Her day is full of variety from job site visits and project briefings to design presentations of new model homes, all of which she loves being a part of.

Allison Jensen

Allison graduated with a Bachelors in Business Management and Marketing from Southwest Minnesota State University and has a long history of visual merchandizing at local retail shops which brought her to Meier Companies. Armed with her passion for design and highly recognized professionalism, she manages new construction projects by directly working with clients who are building with Meier Companies. For Allison, the ultimate goal is working in collaboration with her clients, listening to their needs and desires, and implementing their dreams to create a home that they have long waited to build.

A typical day finds her communicating with vendors, trades and clients to seamlessly support the design process and needs of our clients and company.
