Hillsboro Village Bungalow

Posted by on Jan 4, 2013 in Design, Lighting, Selections, Uncategorized | No Comments



When my dear friend bought this craftsman style bungalow, it was in the midst of a half finished renovation. This allowed us to correct several poor decisions and restore the home while maintaining the architectural integrity of this charming bungalow. On the exterior we kept the eye catching barn red color but toned it down by covering the stark white trim paint with a soft grey-green. We added the center column in order to correct a sagging roof line. At the time of purchase the front porch floor and steps had been redone with plain 2″x 4″ pressure treated lumber decking. This was a disconnect from the home, so we replaced that with tongue and groove decking material and stained it to compliment the bead board porch ceiling that was original to the home. We finished off the porch by adding flagstone steps and sidewalk. We replaced the lighting with period appropriate fixtures and house numbers. It was a pleasure to work on such a unique and charming home.
