West Linn Facelift

This 1980's split level home lacked architectural detail and curb appeal. The home loomed over you when coming into the driveway and the entrance was utilitarian at best, but certainly not inviting. One goal was to create a functional porch because the client enjoyed sitting outside with their dog and the tiny overhang did not provide protection, nor was it attractive. The existing roof was removed and the pitch increased, new siding was applied with a white horizontal band to draw the eye across and bring down the height. This was also achieved with the addition of a quarried stone below. The porch roof was barrel vaulted to high-light the front doorway and arched transom. The final touch was the arbor constructed over the garage to hang flowers. David E. Benner Fine Remodeling-contractor
