The focus of this project was to transform the clients aluminum sided home into a period era character home. As part of this project the front porch was redone with additional details added to posts and beam. The windows were all re-cased with a Victorian style casing. Band boards were added between the shakes and the lap siding. A repeating square detail was added above the front porch to finish the Victorian look. New soffits, as well as gable trim boards and corner boards were added to give this house a completely new look. Certainteed fibre cement siding was used both for the lap siding and the shingles in the gable. Both the siding and the shingles were pre-painted to Benjamin Moore colors, chosen by the client, to accomplish the specific color balance the client was looking for. The project also involved the construction of a completely new rainscreened building envelope & the complete re-siding of the entire house, lifting of front porch, and construction of new a railing for the front stairs.
