M.J. Whelan Construction

Whole House Renovation and Addition - This sensational home improvement project was a quite a dramatic transformation from the original 1970’s brick facade home. Nailite vinyl shakes, cultured stone, several new gables, and a large scale porch with arches & columns were used to give this renovation enormous architectural interest. This South Lyon home improvement included a large master suite addition with a basement. The existing floor plan was redesigned for better use of space. The living room was bumped out & a new fireplace with a wall unit was added. New & refinished hardwood was combined along with new tile floors throughout the home. Home Remodeling. South Lyon, MI
