Lake Oswego Home Exterior
When our clients’ purchased their 1968 home in Lake Oswego, they loved the layout of the home but knew that the exterior could use some love. With a mish mash of styles at the front of their home – worn out, green Craftsman-style doors, a gabled porch roof with barn-like trim, misaligned windows, poorly repaired siding – there was an opportunity to bring the Mid-Century charm back to the home’s exterior.
Keeping our clients desire for Mid-Century in mind, we looked to incorporate Mid-Century style with contemporary details so the home would feel modern, rather than retro.
The first task was to tackle the poorly repaired siding around the entire home. Then the outdated porch roof was removed and replaced with a shed-style roof with metal, standing seam panels. Tongue and groove Cedar was installed on the underside of the roof and a Cedar beam and custom steel posts were used. New energy-efficient Mid-Century-style double doors were installed, dramatic paint colors were chosen, new lighting and a copper rain chain were installed, and a custom address panel was built.
Our clients’ visitors now get a wonderful first impression of this lovely home when they arrive!
