The addition of the porch created a true focal point to the facade, something that didn’t exist previously. It also provided functional outdoor entertaining space for the family, as well as a covered entry for guests. Stone details, tapered columns, and dark cedar decking added texture and life to the façade. A new oval window, exterior cedar window trim, a defining frieze board, and decorative shake siding further enhance the overall look. High contrasting exterior siding and trim paint colors were chosen in order to allow windows and accents like railings and flower boxes to stand out (and pop!).
In the end, this budget friendly transformation has had a very positive impact on the neighborhood and the home, with very minimal impact on the family’s budget. And as an added bonus, this exterior facelift was honored with a “Best of the Best” award from Professional Remodeler Magazine!
