This renovation story in Eden Prairie, MN was both an update and an upgrade. The elements of the project were James Hardie Dream Collection lap siding, James Hardie shingle shakes and cultured stone. As a preferred James Hardie contractor This Eden Prairie project began with the decision to upgrade. The dated Masonite siding was upgraded to James Hardie siding for improved durability and style. James Hardie lap siding in a green Dream Collection color was installed on the body of the home on the first story. James Hardie shingle shakes in the same color was used on the gable peaks for subtle textural interest. The depth of the new color scheme dramatically updates the home’s exterior. James Hardie trim in Arctic White provides crisp definition to the windows, corners and gables.
The upgrade of this Eden Prairie home continued with the addition of cultured stone. The cultured stone grounds the home beneath the bay window and at the garage. The colors in the cultured stone contrast nicely with the James Hardie lap siding. It also adds rustic texture and relief to the front façade. The result is a winning formula for both an update and upgrade of this lovely Eden Prairie home.
