The Craftsman Renovation

Before 2,950 After 4,300 SQ. FT. | Oakville, ON | Completed 2015

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 out­-of-­date.

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. Low-­pitched 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.
