Updating Exterior Without Changing Cottage Appearance: After

Who: Len W.
Where: Greensboro, NC

The overall transformation of the front of the house is what we like best. The porch and landscaping updated the house without changing the cottage appearance. We used salvaged materials for most of the project to save money. The framing was from leftover material from the house remodel. The posts came from Habitat ReStore and the railing was a roadside find. The siding came from a neighbor's house remodel. We installed the sprinkler system and did all of the landscaping ourselves. Everything was purchased locally.

Who did the work: We did most of the work ourselves.
Cost: $1,000–$5,000
