M.J. Whelan Construction

This charming lakefront is layered in details and style. This exterior renovation was done using James HardiPlank fiber cement lap siding and shakes in Mountain Sage. New cultured Bucks County Carolina ledgestone replaced older river rock on the home. All new Pella windows were installed. What really sets this home apart are the decorative gable trellis' that were designed by M.J. Whelan's design team. Our carpenters custom built and installed these unique embellishments on the peaks of the home, adding a very unique architectural element to the facade. A disintegrating chimney was demolished and rebuilt. The new chimney design included Bucks County ledge stone. A welcoming new porch features a tongue and groove
barrel vaulted ceiling with new architectural pillars on stone columns. Home Remodel, White Lake, MI

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Seal the Deal With Fiber Cement Siding
Many newer homes with traditional styling use fiber cement siding. For a house with a large exterior surface area, the material can be used in a variety of textures as well as for shingles in the upper gables.
