The owners, who serve our community as a firefighter and doctor of veterinary medicine, deserved a home with real presence. We envisioned a grand entrance designed around pillars and a stone staircase. Building a deck off the kitchen would also extend the living space and give this young family an appealing place to relax.
To counter the house’s boxy look and give it old-world charm, we designed a new facade, with two pillars flanking the staircase and one located at the end of the new cedar deck. We planned the path to the house to allow for a large elliptical-shaped garden bed at the base of the existing Cherry tree. For the driveway and path, we created a broom concrete finish.
