On a previous blog post, I discussed the option of refacing a home for better curb appeal. In that post, I used an English Tudor elevation design. It was a current project and a good subject to use as an example for home elevation design services.
To recap a bit, the homeowners had hired another designer to design the home. However, they were unsatisfied with the the facade, or what you would call, the face of the building. A long-time builder client referred the homeowners to me. The house was under early construction when I came into the picture. Foundation walls and slab were poured, so my design options were limited at that point. However, I was up for the challenge. It all work out in the end to the satisfaction of all. The final result was a beautiful English Tudor elevation design that made my new clients happy. When they are happy, I’m happy. In addition, the home builder is happy too.
On a side note, I was asked to do interior architectural work to compliment the English Tudor elevation design. I declined because my schedule could not work with their time frame. However, I consulted with the homeowner and advised on some interior ideas to incorporate. I’m pleased to say that Mrs. Harrison implemented many of those suggestions. She invited me in to tour the home. I’m not impress with homes too often as I’ve seen a lot in my years of designing. Yet, I was thoroughly impressed with the attention to details within the interior design. I’m sorry, but unfortunately I have no interior photos to share.
The home is virtually complete now. It has received tons of compliments from on-lookers and admirers. The homeowners have even seen strangers coming onto their property to take photos. I was almost ask to leave before the homeowner recognized me. That is the price you pay for curb appeal I suppose.
