You Won't Believe These Ugly-Duckling Makeovers!
Balancing Act: After
Building designer Kieran J. Liebl, of Royal Oaks Design, worked with Sicora Design-Build to strip away the offending elements and give the house a new look. Liebl played up the stone with three well-proportioned additions: a covered porch with a projecting roofline, a larger shed dormer with a similarly jaunty overhang, and a dramatic front-facing gable that partially encloses the chimney. Contributing to the warm, cohesive exterior are larger windows and details like battens and dentil wood trim, shutters painted Benjamin Moore's Kendall Charcoal, and a cottage-style door that echoes the new second-floor windows.
