Even the exterior of this lake house got a new look: new gray shingles, white trim and gray stone accents were added. And an outdoor fireplace, screened porch and deck gave so many more ways to enjoy the view!
To update the look of this lake house's front exterior facade, designers rejuvenated the cedar shingle roof and had new copper gutters installed. Blue siding was put on the house, and the existing garage door was replaced with a mahogany one, and the Dutch door was restored to bring back the home's charm. To put the finishing touch on the home, new landscaping was added, making the home feel cozy and inviting.
Designers wanted to create a traditional, shingle style summer home for the family in Jamestown, Rhode Island. Since the home sits on a rectangular, corner lot, they needed to address both sides of the street, so they added an oversized porch to the front of the home as a nod to the summer cottages that dotted the coastline at the turn of the century. To address the other side of the street, a smaller garage was built. This space adds storage to the home as well as adds a pleasant aesthetic to the home.
