Overview Awards

These homeowners wanted to make their front entry more inviting, and build an area suitable for entertaining guests in the rear of the home. The original home had a dilapidated set of brick stairs leading to a confusing set of three entry doors at the front of the home.  The entry lacked a central focal point and character.  The rear of the home had a disjointed layout with several randomly placed doors leading to a dull patio, and large blank walls that lacked both charm and character.

The three front doors were replaced with one beautiful custom iron door surrounded by cast concrete flooring and a tongue and groove ceiling. The dilapidated brick steps were replaced with stone, keeping with the style of the home.  Juliette balconies were added to all fixed doors along the front of the home.

The rear brick patio was replaced with a covered porch keeping with the style of the entry – cast concrete flooring and a tongue and groove ceiling.  A fireplace was added for entertaining, as well as an outdoor kitchen and space for dining.  Ceiling heaters were installed for year round entertainment.
