Countryside Make overTraditional Exterior, Minneapolis
This project features an award winning front facade make over. The existing mansard roof was framed over to create a new look that provides some solid curb appeal! The interior of the home did not need to be modified to accommodate this renovation, since all of the construction occurred on the outside of the home.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Frame the Front DoorA porch light on each side of the front door illuminates the gateway to the rest of your home and creates symmetry for your home’s exterior. The porch columns and potted plants continue the balanced look on the exterior of this Minneapolis home.
5. Mount a new mailbox. As with a light fixture, swapping out a tired mailbox makes a world of difference. If your existing mailbox is a traditional post model by the street, you may be able to remove it in favor of a wall-mounted style or a door slot — consult your local postmaster for regulations and specifications.
Many homeowners choose the color of their mailbox based on the color of their home and the other accessories on their porch and front yard. Black is our favorite choice for adding contrast and curb appeal. It is classic and clean and stands out.
