HOUSE EXTERIOR, BEFORE
We removed the brick, changed the roofline, installed new windows, redesigned the front porch and dormers, changed the gutters, replaced the front door and painted everything a warm white.
HOUSE EXTERIOR, AFTER
The original dormer design was chunky and over shadowed the small windows. The original windows were divided into too many lites and all those lines made the small windows look busy.
DORMER DESIGN, BEFORE
The new dormer design is slimmer in profile and the windows look larger and more in proportion to the house.
DORMER DESIGN, AFTER
The original roof was peaked over the front door and was made of standard brown/gray asphalt shingles.
THE ROOF, BEFORE
Removing the peak over the foyer added architectural interest while also showcasing the new slate roof.
THE ROOF, AFTER
The house's old vinyl windows were not symmetrical and they were divided with too many lites with lots of distracting lines.
WINDOW DESIGN, BEFORE
The new custom wooden windows are symmetrical with fewer lites for a cleaner, less distracting look. The first floor windows are floor-to-ceiling length so plenty of natural light enters the house.
The 6" half round, copper gutters pack a visual punch while serving the practical purpose of protecting the house from water.
THE GUTTERS, AFTER
Because of the awkward spacing of the original windows, there wasn't room for shutters on the right side of the house.
SIDE VIEW OF HOUSE, BEFORE
By centering the new windows, we created space for these custom, working shutters.
SIDE VIEW OF HOUSE, AFTER
The entry to the house lacked both a porch and an appropriate sized rain overhang.
VIEW OF THE STOOP, BEFORE
The newly redesigned entry has both a stoop and a larger overhang.

THE FRONT DOOR, BEFORE
The new front door has a custom designed pattern and antique brass hardware.
