2016 Award - Residential Exterior

Our client approached us about doing an addition in the back of their house. Up to this point, they had a full walk-out basement, but the deck above blocked all the light to the basement. The house was covered with brick on three sides, but the back was vinyl siding. To top it all off, the exterior of the basement wall was pressed concrete, which was not attractive. To start, we removed the deck and re-placed it with three balconies off the great room. This allowed light into the basement. We then added a brick veneer to cover up the unattractive concrete wall. This helped make the back of house congruent with the rest of the structure. It added continuity and a simple elegance. We also replaced the vinyl siding with hardi-plank. To go along with the rest of the work we were doing on the rear of the house, the customers also wanted an addition. So, we added a covered patio off of the kitchen. The goal was to make this patio seem like a completely natural extension of the house. At the basement level, we did a large flagstone patio leading out of the basement door and creating an elegant space for outdoor relaxation.
