Welcome to California Closets Twin Cities
Why choose California Closets - Twin Cities? Here are just a few reasons...
This local franchise was started by a cabinet maker who had a vision of doing much more beyond basic closet design. Our machinery, staffing, and technology has all been selected to offer the greatest opportunity in design solutions that are top quality and innovative.
We are 100% dedicated to offering a solution that best meets the client’s needs, even if it is not a solution we provide. Our goal is to exceed the client’s expectations and therefore we take on only projects where we can reach that goal.
High quality is a standard in our franchise, not an upgrade option. For example, our standard drawer is dovetail, wood construction with soft-close runners. Clients receive the best option right away.

Meet Moe and Michelle
Moe Sweeney and Michele Skjei, both residents of the Twin Cities area, have been the proud owners of California Closets Minneapolis for over two decades.
Moe and Michele both come from strong design backgrounds and have a passion for making storage spaces in Minneapolis homes the very best they can be.
Here are their unique stories:
Moe Sweeney was a banjo maker and cabinet maker at the beginning of his career. After seeing a California Closets display at a homeshow in Denver in 1983, he went to work for corporate for a short period. Originally from Wisconsin, Moe moved his family back to the Midwest in 1989 to start up the Twin Cities franchise. Moe currently resides between his home in Edina and cabin in Wisconsin. He has two wonderful sons who live in Twin Cities and pursue their own professional passions and aspirations.
Michele Skjei was Moe’s first hire, and the original Design Consultant for the Twin Cities franchise. Her love for the company and product led her to be a natural fit to ownership for the franchise. She and Moe became partners in 1996. Michele resides in Lakeville with her husband and two sons, who are still in high school. Michele and her husband are real estate partners and keep busy with their son’s hockey and football schedules.
