Exterior Project #1
The clients had owned their home for sometime
when they decided to to tackle a remodel of the front facade
of their home. Due to their experience in other phases of
the construction the owner felt they would be able to tackle
the project without the assistance of a qualified design
After their attempt at remodeling they were unhappy with
the results. They were unclear as to why they their changes
failed to produce a front elevation that they were happy
and proud of. It was at this point they decided to get help.
A limited budget necessitated that structural changes be
kept to an minimum. Previous modifications created a front
elevation not only lacking character, but also lacked protection
over the front door to the owners and guests.
The front with it's South-West exposure created many potential maintenance issues with the wood siding and natural finished doors. Even thought it had only been a year since the exterior refinishing, the front finish was ruined from exposure.
The new porch created a protective covering to those entering. Soft arches over the new windows and new roof lines added dimension.
In the end, the homeowners found what they were looking for....CURB APPEAL!!
