While the plans allowed for an exterior renovation, they didn't include any curb-appeal enhancements. "The original structure looked like a simple storybook house that a kid would draw—a triangle on top of a square," says Whisenand. She proposed a beachy cottage style to connect the house more directly with its location near the water.
