About Project

The exterior of the house was modernized, rather than simply restoring it to its original glory. The roofline was raised and extended, creating a monoslope roof and becoming a key focal point. Cedar was used on the soffit, providing a natural contrast to the new black paint. In the rear of the home, the upper deck was given a new horizontal, cost-effective railing and a new patio was built below.

The home also received all new Marvin Integrity windows. With wood interior and black fiberglass exterior, these modern windows also improved the outdoor view by reducing the number of panels. The living room went from having six window panes to two large panes. Asymmetrical, tall windows give an added interest and openness to the space.
