curb appeal boost on budget cape cod style home entry with gabled portico, concrete stoop in red brick « »

Layer on Classical Details: After

By tearing out a closet in the foyer, Bob was able to shift the entry 2 feet to the right, centering it on the house to create symmetry. He then built a gabled portico accented with a dentil-molding cornice that continues across the entire facade. The portico's supporting posts are wood, but Bob used cellular PVC for the majority of the balustrade. A new, poured-concrete stoop sheathed in red brick completes the now stately entry.
