The Craftsman’s Choice team delivered a punch of personality to this Eden Prairie, MN rambler. The combination of James Hardie lap siding, James Hardie shingle shakes and a new front portico brought the “wow” factor to this lovely home.
The decision to take off the white brick on the front of the home was the beginning of this dramatic renovation. The body of the home was given an update with James Hardie shingle shakes in Monterey Taupe. The subtle texture of the shingle shakes adds life to this neutral palette. James Hardie lap siding in Monterey Taupe brings another layer of texture to the body of the home. The crisp James Hardie Arctic White trim ties the design together.
The most dramatic change was the addition of a gabled portico on the front of the home. The height of the gable adds height and dimension to the front elevation. Round Permacast composite columns make a statement at the front entry. James Hardie shingle shakes in Navajo Beige on the gable add subtle color variation. James Hardie Cedarmill soffit dresses up the ceiling of this stylish portico. The result is a sophisticated neutral palette that completely transformed this grand Eden Prairie rambler.
