This transformation story in Shoreview, MN was about color, texture and expertise. New James Hardie lap siding, trim and cultured stone was the supporting cast of this update. The Craftsman’s Choice professionals were the leads of this renovation story.
When this Shoreview, MN client wanted to update the exterior of their 1980’s home, they turned to Craftsman’s Choice for expertise. The team got to work by removing the tired stucco exterior. James Hardie ColorPlus lap siding in Khaki Brown was selected for the body of the home. The depth and richness of Khaki Brown provided an elegant new identity for the exterior. James Hardie trim in Monterey Taupe smartly defines the windows, corners and entrance of this Shoreview beauty. This choice illustrates how using trim in a darker shade than the body of a home can be a smart alternative.
The subplot of this renovation story was the makeover of the front entrance. The existing arched opening was removed in favor of a more expansive one. The wider entry provides a more substantial and welcoming entrance while offering shelter from the elements. Accents of cultured stone were added to the base of the home to add texture and color interest. The cultured stone nicely grounds the new front entrance and coordinates beautifully with the new Monterey Taupe trim. The combination of color, texture and Craftsman’s Choice expertise were the keys to this happy ending in Shoreview.
