An Exterior Uplift Transforms this 1947 Home into a Chic Craftsman Cottage

A charming and spacious new deck gives this family of five a spot to enjoy the sun at the front of their home while adding generous extra storage below to accommodate sports and outdoor equipment. Previous renovations to the 1947 home updated its interior, but the stucco exterior and limited entrance had remained untouched. Because of the project’s proximity to the front of the property, bylaw variances were required, and successfully obtained.

“The end result is beautiful, and we are very happy with the entire process.”

Client objectives

The homeowners wanted to change the external appearance of the home by giving it a more “craftsman cottage” look, upgrading the insulation and creating more storage space for their family of five.

Project challenges

“We hired the Flintstones team to fulfil my dream of a front porch. The end result is beautiful, and we are very happy with the entire process. Flintstones listened to our needs and gave us a very thorough budget breakdown prior to the start. Their timeline was accurate and they did right by us when things did not go as planned.

Trey was always very quick to respond to any of our on-site questions. And Max and Mike were also always on top things from the office. Everything was explained thoroughly throughout the process.

The sub contractors that they used were professional and managed appropriately and we really grew to enjoy our build crew! Thanks to Jared, Landon and Dan for a job well done!”
