The exterior of this home, originally built in 1939, was only enhanced. The goal was to leave as much of the facade as unchanged as possible, to blend seamlessly with the rest of the beautiful suburban NJ neighborhood. An addition was added on the right side. The existing garage was leveled and reconstructed without demoing the original structure. Copper flashing and new trim was added. Landscaping and an unconventional yet still traditional-minded paint scheme finish the exterior renovation.

Stone front - Hi, this is just beautiful! We are looking to do a similar type of stone work around the main door area all the way to the roof. Can you still do this and maintain the original vinyl on the house? Or does the vinyl need to be replaced? »
Michael was the general contractor for the home, so he and Ellie decided to make minimal changes to the exterior of the house. The couple wanted to maintain the home's original look and fit the rest of the neighborhood. A new garage was added to the home, but the only other changes outside are copper flashing and new trim.
