BEFORE

A less than impressive porch entry and a deteriorating brick porch floor, coupled with a truncated
porch roof, detracted from the overall curb appeal of this 1989 home. A combination of brick and
rough cedar beams dated the home and buried its full potential.
Overdue for an Upgrade
Image is not available

AFTER

A budget friendly design build project replaced all cedar beams with hand tooled Limestone. A new porch roof, with
a graceful arch was framed. A stamped and stained concrete porch floor, that matches the sidewalk, replaced the
deteriorating brick on the floor of the porch. The front entry now features two dry stack stone pillars that are crowned
with a graceful arch. A standing seam copper roof was added over the porch for architectural interest.
A Gracious Welcome

BEFORE

A massive composition roof, a random collection of different size windows outfitted with molded
plastic shutters removed any sense of architectural interest in this home. Large brick columns
supported a tiny hip roof over the front porch. This roof, in turn, covered the cave like entrance to
the home. Overall this home was totally lacking in curb appeal.
The Gateway to Blah

AFTER

A new porch with a graceful brick arch now provides a welcoming feeling to the front of this home. Two dormers
were added to the massive slope of the roof to provide architectural interest. A new front entry door with a glazed
circle top arch were incorporated into the design adding both requested privacy and interior lighting. The brick was
painted after which new Windsor windows and custom wood shutters were added to the entire home.
Symmetrical Accents

BEFORE

Aluminum windows surrounded by rough cedar framing were hidden by overgrown trees and shrubs
on the front of this home. A less than impressive deteriorating front door complete with pealing paint
provided a creaky welcome to family and friends.

AFTER

Window openings were enlarged and relocated. Pella Architectural Series casement windows were installed.
Wilshire Copper Dormers were custom fabricated, by Beech Sheet Metal of Sunnyvale Texas and added to the
roof for architectural interest. A new cast stone porch, two patios and cast stone trim were designed into the new
face of the home. Over 500,000 lbs. of custom cast stone was manufactured by Stone Legends of Dallas Texas
and meticulously installed on the home’s exterior. New landscaping was added as construction was completed.
Extraordinary Estate

BEFORE

The rear of this home was dominated by a leaking flat roof porch and a bank of aluminum framed windows.
Direct access to the rear yard was limited to a circuitous route through the kitchen. The floor of the porch was
composed of cracked concrete and a random layout of brick pavers.
Patchwork Porch

AFTER


A new hip roof was designed and installed over the porch to allow additional light into the interior. Pella
Architectural Series windows and a door were added, providing direct access to the Great Room and its 20’
ceiling. Custom cast stone pillars and crown molding were fabricated by Stone Legends of Dallas Texas.
Copper guttering and a new concrete tile roof were added to complete the remodel of the porch.
Grandeur with a Splash

BEFORE

The outdoor kitchen consisted of a Propane fired mobile gas grill which was stored under a low-lying flat leaking
roof. It shared space with the pool maintenance equipment in a corner of the rear yard overlooking the in-ground
pool. Rarely used, it was more of an eyesore than an appliance that enhanced the entertainment experience.

A new game room and covered entertainment patio were constructed as part of a total remodel of this portion
of the home. Now housed under a double French Vault ceiling the new outdoor kitchen features a complete
compliment of DCS outdoor appliances. Danver, total stainless-steel cabinets provide maintenance free storage.
Pella Architectural Series doors anchor one end of the patio, while cast stone columns and trim from Stone
Legends integrate this area into the balance of the home. (the attached video will tell the story of this project.)
Ready for Entertainment

BEFORE

The leaking flat roof of this covered patio had totally rotted out several of the supporting beams.
Complicating the problems of a deteriorating structure was the fact that the 1000sf covered patio
had been illegally built over a public easement.
Poolside Potential

AFTER

This covered patio includes and outdoor kitchen,1000sf of entertainment space and seating for up to thirty guests. A
double French Vault ceiling is covered with concrete roof tiles. The cast stone floor and columns were custom fabricated
by Stone Legends of Dallas Texas. Copper guttering diverts water run-off into an underground collection system.
Bring a Friend

BEFORE

The deteriorating redwood deck, the poorly constructed family room addition, the rear windows and the
siding on both the home and garage were removed during the demolition phase of the project. This provided
a clean slate for a new addition that would tie the free-standing garage into the home.
Room for More
Image is not available

AFTER

This creative addition integrated the former free-standing garage into the house. The added space allowed us to create a
new kitchen complete with walk in pantry and a new powder room and family room. It also provided direct access to the
living room dramatically improving traffic flow within the home. The bank of fixed Rogue Valley doors in the family room look
out over the 300ft deep rear yard and the rock lined stream that runs through it.

BEFORE

This 1930 vintage Traditional Tudor home occupies a prominent corner lot in Tulsa’s Maple Ridge neighborhood.
Following the remodel of the kitchen and basement we were asked to expand the master bedroom suite on the
second floor. The walkout deck over the sunroom provided the airspace and opportunity we were looking for.
Undeniably Tudor
Image is not available

AFTER

A new home office, master bathroom and master closet were added to the second story over
the sunroom creating an expansive master suite. Three quarries were contacted and became
sources for the multi-colored slate roof. As a result, the new and existing roofs are perfect
matches. The unique stucco appearance of the second level was duplicated by our stucco
subcontractor, who “punched” the fresh stucco with rag wrapped hands.
The Perfect Transformation
Image is not available

BEFORE

Conveniently located in the popular Brookside neighborhood, this home was searching for curb appeal. Its exterior
was covered with a combination of composite & vinyl siding. An ill -fitting stamped metal garage door tilted to the west
on the crumbling concrete driveway. The front stairs and porch were in a state of disrepair. A flimsy ornamental iron
post supported the porch roof. The front door was constructed of molded plastic and the original concrete block stem
wall peaked out from behind the shrubs.
Easily Overlooked

AFTER

Simulated cedar shakes from the Louisiana Pacific Strand Board collection replaced the existing jumbled assembly
of siding. A new brick paver covered porch was built, complete with matching brick stairs. For the safety of the Owners
and their elderly parents the stairs and porch are electrically heated by a SunTouch outdoor heating system to create
a year-round, ice free entry to the home. Dry stacked stone was installed over the concrete blocks, a custom walnut
entry door and overhead garage door overlay were installed A new driveway outlined with brick pavers was poured
complete with a spot for guest parking.
Colorful Cottage

BEFORE

The concrete patio had been built prior to the area being designated as a flood plain. It consisted of a raised
half-moon shaped concrete surface surrounded by a waste high brick wall. Covering the patio was a weather-
beaten aluminum patio cover that not only leaked, but also was architecturally incompatible with the existing
home. Complicating the issue was the fact that the local brick manufacturer had closed its doors.
Neglected and Unused
Image is not available

AFTER

We started by removing and salvaging brick from the existing patio wall and then lowered the patio surface
to ground level. By doing so, we created a larger storage area for potential flood waters making the flood
plain officials very happy. We located a brick factory in Indiana, that could replicate the brick. Using a
combination of new & old brick we built columns & a surrounding walls that perfectly match the existing home.
Stainless steel cabinets from Danver Cabinets, appliances from KitchenAid, a Delta faucet and a granite
countertop finished off the outdoor kitchen.
Invitation to Relaxation

BEFORE

Deteriorating vinyl siding, molded plastic shutters and single pane glass windows were all targets for
replacement on this whole home remodel. Rotting Masonite siding and a broken wooden overhead
garage door were removed and replaced on the free-standing garage.
Unflattering Façade

AFTER

Custom cedar shutters by Timberlane Wood Crafters surround the Windsor divided light replacement windows on this
whole home remodel. Fixed Rogue Valley true divided light French doors finish out two walls of the sunroom. Crane-
Board foam backed vinyl siding provides added insulation and unifies the front, sides and rear of the home.
