Were able to keep the look and feel of this house while keeping in budget by adding stucco. We kept the shake and B& B siding. If you are trying to stay in budget just ask how we can redesign your exterior to fit your budget. I think you will still like it.
When they told me to paint this house black and white I thought they were just kidding. I was pretty skeptical about the final outcome. I thought only my little brother could like that.
Actually.... I kind of like it.
We built a custom post on the entry that I wish we would have painted white but it still looks good. I hope you like this and if you have an idea that is going to be a little different. Just go for it!!!!
What can I say about this project. The picture speaks for itself. There is allot going on on this combination retail/residential building. It is the brain child of the builder that put this together. Cement board siding, stucco, thin cut bricks and natural thin stone.
We had a great time transforming the outside of this little cabin in Sundance. We had a few delays getting this project done but were able to beat the weather. I didn't mind stretching out the days so I could go hang out at this great little spot in the forest.
Before picture.. Not sure how old this cabin is but this is the original siding with no protection other than a nice coat of oil.
The stone is a natural thin stone called Cinnamon Lake. Stacked tight with a Sabastian Stone sill.
I really should take a picture of the view of the mouth of American Fork Canyon from the living room windows. It is beautiful. In the winter you can see a herd of Mountain Sheep across canyon road lingering on the golf course and the side hills.
We still have a little bit of work to do here on the foundation and we will be power washing the stone to bring our some of the vibrant colors that are still hiding. This is a natural thin stone that we call Apache. We mixed some smooth and tumbled Apache together this time as the stone continually changes as it is quarried.
I really like how the stone caps look on the front posts.
This is my new favorite picture. I may have to get permission to use it in all my advertising. (like I do any) Well, if I did any I would want to include this picture.
The detail on this bay really stands out on the front of the house.
As I get many requests across the country for color on our projects I thought I would let you all know the colors. Sherwin Williams Dovetail SW 7018, Pure White SW 7005
We worked on this beautiful home in Alpine this past winter. It has been to cold to finish the painting and it is a good thing since the homeowners (no first names to protect the innocent) needed all that time to decide on a color. :)
As you can see the time was worth it and they picked the perfect shade of grey for this house. Wow... It looks great guys.
Once again we decided to stucco the sides and rear and once we got the colors matched up the surfaces look great together. We carried some of the detail onto the side gables to tie together the different materials. Why stucco on the sides and back you are asking? about $12,000.00
I wish I had a before and after picture of this project. This is the completed product. I'll try to explain and I hope the Crump's are not offended. :) Under the caps on this rock water feature, which by the way has live fish, was installed a series of grey precast caps with grey mortar joints. That is the mortar on the wall that you see. (NOT our mess) We meshed and base coated over the concrete caps to prep a smooth finish of Tuscan Plaster. Ohhhh.. Now I feel better
You can see a little bit of the house in this picture. There is not any grey colors to be found.
This unique house is in Vineyard. It sits right on the east side of Utah Lake overlooking the lake from the rear balconies. If you ever wondered what it would look like to put galvanized siding on your home, just zoom in and take a peak.
We added some chains to the gutters. They are functional, but mostly they just look good. We used a thin natural stone called Apache with a 6' wainscot across the front.
