This Edina, Minnesota project is a beautiful refresh by the Craftsman’s Choice team. James Hardie lap siding and shingle shakes were the foundation of the project. A refresh of the front portico added the finishing touch.
The exterior of this Edina home needed to be reinvigorated after fifty years of harsh Minnesota winters. James Hardie lap siding and shingle shakes were the perfect material choice to meet this weather challenge. This project features James Hardie lap siding in Monterey Taupe on the main body of the home. James Hardie shingle shakes in Monterey Taupe highlight the gable over the garage. The change in siding texture adds visual interest to the front of the home. Using Monterey Taupe on both the body of the home and the gable provides continuity. The trim in Arctic White lends definition and crispness to this charming home.
The front entry of this Edina home also got the refresh treatment. The Craftsman’s Choice team added a new level of detail to the front portico to make the entry even more welcoming. New PermaCast fiberglass columns and gable brackets in white add definition and interest to the entry. James Hardie shingle shakes in Monterey Taupe add textural detail to the gable of the portico. Repeating the use of Monterey Taupe ties the portico in with the overall design direction. The combination of the new siding, trim and portico details resulted in a striking refresh of this Edina home.
