These before pictures are all too familiar. When driving through suburban neighbourhoods across the GTA you are guaranteed to see a version of this 1970s 2-storey home. The façade lacks dimension, the roofline is void of architectural details and the colour scheme is outofdate.
Our client was inspired by Craftsman style architecture. The exterior portion of the renovation included an addition over the garage, a 2-storey addition behind the garage, an enclosure of the front porch, and a complete overhaul of the facade. The home was recladded with grey wood shingles and board-and-batten siding. Natural stone surrounds the base of the home in a complimentary colour palette. Lowpitched gables were added to the roofline. A front portico framed by white tapered columns, exposed rafters and wood tongue-and-groove soffits creates the picture-perfect craftsman style front entry.
