Exterior traditional-exterior


The homeowners were tired with the look of their home and in need of creative help! With a Mansard style roof they thought there was no hope for creating an updated look and were just going to settle for a new front door and windows.

With a worn out picture they had saved for years of an arched style entry they loved, frankly at first glance just looked impossible to duplicate, we went to work!

Finishing touches include new copper roofs, custom made African mahogany entry door system and perfectly sized pendant light made the homeowners picture a reality!

May I have permission to use your image and link to your website? - I absolutely love the curved copper roof that you used on this dutch colonial. It was truly the picture that gave me the courage to have a little copper added to our side entry. Do you mind if I use your photo and either link to your website or your Houzz portfolio?
