Kippels and Thompson Minneapolis, Minnesota
Our clients asked for nothing less than a whole-house transformation. We kept the siding, but changed the trim, added brackets to sagging eaves, specified new roofing and repainted the entire house. We finished off by opening up the existing three-season porch to take back the street. We used stone piers, wooden columns and a broad, shallow arch to transform this house from a recluse to a social butterfly.
