Who: Curt B.
Where: Chesterland, OH
We love the details and materials: the eyebrow dormers, the front entry with cedar beams, and the overhang across the garages all added dimension. The textured shaded shake, dressed fieldstone, and cedar garage doors—with 200 pieces of hardware—completed it. We were the general contractor. We researched and purchased all the materials; removed all the siding, gutters, fascias, and garage doors; put up the house wrap; did all the painting and staining; and put all the hardware on the doors. We hired talented trades for the stone and carpentry and then labored for them.
Who did the work: I did some of the work myself, but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: $50,00 to $100,000
