House reno

It all started with a dream.

A dream to take this house:

And make it look like this house:

It took a lot of time.

Started with the chimneys.

Removed all the old siding and brick and shingles.

Replaced all the windows and insulated the whole north side with rigid insulation.

The first siding piece was exciting to see on the house!  Then the scratch coat for the stone needed to go on.

We re-insulated the attic to R60 from R23.

That was a messy job.

Replaced all the soffit and fascia.

The stone is my favourite part!

Painted the garage door and replaced all the walk-through doors.

Got new shingles that changed the roof from brown to black.

Had my father in law the Master Bricklayer come to help on the unseasonably warm November day.  That allowed us to get the stone on finished before winter.

The end result is a striking difference to the old exterior.  My husband did a great job on this project!
