Bringing a House back from Disrepair, the Falls, Miami - Remodeling Project

This was a foreclosure which was in terrible disrepair. Even the center of the roof was falling in. But through the work we did, we created an exposed wood ceiling with a combination of double rafters and collar ties.

Look all the way to end to see the "before" photos to see the extent of the disrepair.

The beige part of this front had to be rebuilt because it was originally an illegal addition and it was in terrible condition. Go to the bottom and see all the "Before" photos. Photo by XPR Photography

The living area of the house is a large open space with the beautiful exposed beam ceiling. The whole roof had to be reconstructed and this gave us an opportunity to do something interesting. Photo by XPR Photography
