What a Difference (Decent) Windows Make…
I’ve been waiting to see how this project on Club Boulevard was turning out for a while, and just got a chance to walk the house with the contractor and homeowner earlier this week. The house is a lovely 1910’s Craftsman that had been added onto in some odd ways over the past 40 years, and our mission was to make the rear enclosed porches and additions more useful, add a screened porch, and unify the exterior.
Someone in the 1980s added a rear master bedroom on the second floor and a breakfast room off the kitchen without considering the existing roofline, original window pattern or proportion, or the exterior materials. It made the new pieces feel very pasted onto the original house, and brought lots of attention to the unbalanced rear facade.
Riverbank Construction, a pleasure to work with as always, has a few pieces to wrap up before it’s all said and done. I’m looking forward to seeing the final details in place and taking photos of the rest of the project in the next couple of weeks. It’s one that will be featured in the portfolio to be sure!
