With all of the trending modern farmhouse style homes we’ve been seeing and with the current design we thought it would be a great opportunity to achieve this look with our home. The ranch style roof structure allowed us to break up with roof sections by adding metal to all of the lower sections along with the 3 season porch. We really love the contrast between all the white and black so we decided to go with black for tall the windows, soffit, fascia and gutters which really gave our home the curb appeal we were looking to achieve. We’ve lived in our home for just over 6 years and after completing our exterior renovation we absolutely love driving in to our neighborhood and seeing the end result of the transformation.

3D Design

Owner Notes:
  • First we generated a 3D rendering of the exterior remodel (see Before Photo).  We were so happy with the way the completed remodel came out and you can see how close it came to the 3D rendering (see After Photo).  We offer similar 3D renderings to our clients so they can get a good idea of what their complete project will look it.
  • Feel free to take a look at some more Before & After photos below of the various different aspects of the Home Remodel project!


Products & Materials:

  • Asphalt Shingles (Owens Corning Duration in Onyx Black )
  • Metal Seam (Central States – Horizon Lock or Panel Lock Plus) – which is a standing seam metal with hidden fasteners so they are not exposed

Owner Notes:

  • We wanted something different that would really make the house stand out so adding the metal roof really gave our home the curb appeal we were looking for!

Owner Notes:

  • We chose the Marvin Essentials because we wanted a modern look with our windows and the essentials provided the look and quality we were trying to achieve and sine they are known as one of the best in the industry, it made our decision very simple.
  • All of the windows were trimed with a 4 inch LP trime board.
  • Most homes only do it on the front facing (just to save money), but we did it all the way around the house.  We also did it on every single top wall and any angled roof line (framed whole house front to back)

Siding, Soffit, Fascia

Products & Materials:

  • 8″ LP Smart Side Lap Siding with LP Smart side Board and Batten accents in all the of the gables.
  • 4″ LP Smart Side picture framed window trim
    Black aluminum 6″ prebent fascia with quad center vent aluminum soffit.
  • Custom Cedar Gable Decorative Accents Stained

Owner Notes:

  • With this ranch style home, we really wanted to go with a modern farmhouse look and the LP Smart Side really did just that. With the larger profile siding and the mixture of the vertical and horizontal siding gave us the modern curb appeal that really give this a “new construction ” feel to our home!

  • We wanted an easy facelift since our insulated steel doors were functioning properly so we painted the doors in Tricorn Black with Sherwin Williams SW-6258.
