Exterior

How do you make a split entry not look like a split entry?
Several challenges presented themselves when designing the new entry/portico. The homeowners wanted to keep the large transom window above the front door and the need to address “where is” the front entry and of course, curb appeal.

With the addition of the new portico, custom built cedar beams and brackets along with new custom made cedar entry and garage doors added warmth and style.

Final touches of natural stone, a paver stoop and walkway, along professionally designed landscaping.

This home went from ordinary to extraordinary!

Photos in progress? - Hello! I was wondering if you have any pictures of the work in progress? How much of the original roof were you able to save? I love the entirely remade roofline. What was the impact to the interior? What is the living room like?

Hi! We do not have any during photos that I could find. The new front "bump out" roof actually just was built over top the existing roof. The existing roof did not change. There was a little window seat added in the living room which has a soffit over it so it didn't change the interior ceiling. I hope that makes some sense! Good Luck!

Anywhere between $75,000-$100,000 based on your final selections, landscaping and size of home. It is hard to give a ballpark number for this type of thing. Thanks and good luck.

Does this house have an entrance from the garage? - Our house looks very similar and does not have an entrance from to garage due to the front door being in the middle. I'd love to make an entrance from our garage, just wondering if this house did. Thanks!

Thanks for your question! It is not hardie board, it is painted cedar board and batton. We did a custom color match for the paint. Good luck!

Hi! We did not bump out the entry but we did add square footage to the living room window area which allowed us to create the additional roof line. Thanks for the question!

Thanks...we LOVE this re-model. We plan on doing something similar as ours is an extra long rectangle with a recessed entry (bumpouts in the Living room & Bed Rooms) with no visual appeal.The lower area is 70's red brick which will paint and then eventually stone like yours...One step at a time :)
