Modern Bungalow

WHOLE HOUSE RENOVATION AND ADDITION
Built in the 1940s, this cottage had an incredible amount of character and personality but was not conducive to the way we live today. The rooms were small and did not flow well into one another. The renovation of this house required opening up several rooms and adding square footage to the back of the home, all the while, keeping the curb appeal of a small cottage.

The roof was existing. If we recall correctly, and based on the photo, I believe it was a dark brown.

We did not supply the shutters. They were the homeowners.

We do not have the original plans for this project. The home has a full finished basement though.

I've seen similar ones at Lantern & Scroll. I bought my lanterns from them, I looked at Flambeux but the quality was not nearly as good, and Lantern & Scroll's were less expensive! Yay! www.lanternandscroll.com Ask for Karen and the free shipping!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This tiny porch and its pediment give this home loads of curb appeal. From the Chippendale railings to the comfortable rockers, a welcoming entry where you'll want to stay awhile is evident.
Element: Sidelights. Flanking the front door, they dress up the entry slightly more than the pilaster-lintel combo. Sidelights can be found on either side of paneled or French doors.How to make it your own: For the same effect without reconfiguring your entry space, try swapping out a solid door for one with windows.
Can you have a rocking good time out front? Even a small front porch calls for old-fashioned rockers. It's also a great spot for watching the world go by. Porch swings, wicker chairs and benches are other great front porch seating options.Check out 11 inspiring small front porches
