The owners of this majestic lakeside home loved the home’s character but it badly needed upgrades. Years of waterfront living had taken its toll, damaging the home’s siding, trim, gutters and roof. An existing patio beneath the worn rear stairs served little purpose and had significant water leakage, causing decay that affected structural integrity.
The homeowner’s main concern in renovating the exterior was maintaining the home’s appearance just as it was. They had fallen in love with the arches and circular designs in the woodwork, a tricky feat for any contractor. They also loved the cedar shake siding and color-scheme.
After replacing the siding, constructing a new three-seasons room, renovating the rear centerpiece staircase and replacing the entire roof (adorning new gutters, soffits and fascia), the home was given long-lasting protection and increased functionality. A fresh paint job adds the finishing touch, resulting in a beautiful, highly livable home that’s well protected from Mother Nature.
