Winnetka Exterior Makeover


Adopting A New Nationality

Here’s an interesting case study: Converting a Swiss Chalet to an English Tudor. The homeowner dreamed of living in a home designed in her favorite architectural style and Elevations was happy to oblige.

One of the design challenges was to make better use of the front enclosed porch. The client was thrilled that Elevations had their own in-house designers to help put her dream on paper. After several design sessions paying close attention to all the details that define the Tudor style – sizing the new windows, batten boards, detailing the fill-in pattern, designing the shutters, etc. – we successfully transformed the home’s style. Best of all, the client moved into a new Tudor without even changing her address!
