Dramatic Front Entrance Makeover

The original front entrance to this beautiful late 1970’s Neo-Eclectic Prairie stone house was inviting… but John’s makeover screams, “Wow!”

A mirror image of the A-frame facade was incorporated into the new design leading the eye all around the front of the house. Symmetry adds to curb appeal while the trees add an interesting organic twist.

Playful stepping stones encourage an almost skipping type feel and demand a choice on which side to go up.

The new stone garden walls allow for planters that can change periodically by displaying greenery, colorful flowers, or cascading foliage. These stone garden walls give the illusion of floating steps and landing.

Replacing the bright pumpkin orange brick steps with matching Fon-du-lac stone allows the elegant mahogany doors to become a focal point.

John’s makeover adds drama and curb appeal accentuating the beauty of this home.
