Coastal Chic Exterior
The Design Challenge
The challenge was to transform a small unused front room into a much-needed bedroom and update the exterior giving it personality and a fresh feel.
By relocating the front door and enclosing the porch we improved traffic flow, and added the space needed for the new bedroom.
We defined the new entrance by adding a custom gable roof and rain chains — which divert rainwater into the french drain.
“It’s all the details – big and small — that give a home its personality.”
The homeowner wanted a coastal feel, so we painted the home her favorite shade of blue and added wood shakes (common on the northwest coast), which also helped break up the front elevation.
