Exterior facelift

30Nov12

This is a project that we had renovated the interior on a few years ago, and now it was time to clean up the exterior. There are many homes that, although they are structurally sound, are looking very tired from the outside. With this project, we wanted to add a modern twist to the standard two story “shotgun” house. Reworking the front porch and adding a flat roof over it adds some interest to the front facade, and provides a great place to relax and watch the world go by. New metal clad windows, cedar accents, and acrylic stucco (EFIS) add to the crispness of the architecture. The added bonus of an EFIS system on a older home is that the foam insulation under the stucco will add a bit of R-value to the otherwise poorly insulated house.
