Shingle-Style Cottage: After

Who: Jeffrey A.
Where: Birmingham, MI

I believe the house is wonderful. It fits the lifestyle of my new wife and me perfectly. The Shingle-style exterior is in keeping with both the neighborhood and the New England aesthetic that I am so fond of, and everything from color to material choice to execution is exactly how envisioned. Undertaking a major remodel such as this, while an amazing experience, is stressful, and it was only with the help and planning of my dad as GC that we could have done it. Without his help, knowledge, and lending hand, I would never have been able to undertake such a project. Being able to work alongside and with my dad during this extensive remodel was an experience I won't forget and will always appreciate.

Who did the work: We did some of the work ourselves but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: More than $100,000
