Who: Chantal C
Where: Silver Spring, Md.
I removed the porch over the original entrance, along with the black shutters. I then jack-hammered up the asphalt driveway and my neighbor and I installed a 1,000-square-foot flagstone patio across the front of the house.
I had the original entrance and the garage door opening replaced with a brick that was close to the original white-washed brick, and the original slate roof was replaced with a 50-year architectural shingle.
