Naperville Exterior Makeover

The clients purchased the house because it had good bones. The exterior was a mess of odd color choices and mixed architecture. The first order of business was to make the interior their own and now it was time to tackle the exterior. The baby blue tudor, skinny victorian columns with ginger bread brackets, and dirty beige brick presented an overwhelming challenge.

  • Substantial square columns replaced the old gingerbread supports.
  • Fiber cement siding and fiber cement shake replaced the blue tudor.
  • Country French arch trusses and window details grace the front gables.
  • New garage doors with arched glass windows anchor all of the new design elements.
  • The brick was stained to a rich complimentary color balancing the earth tones of the siding.
  • Keeping budget in mind, the cedar siding on three sides was preserved and painted to match the new color pallet of the front elevation.

The Elevations design team took washed out disconnected look and, with rich colors and graceful curves, created an elegant French country home.
