We are looking to remodel this house in the next year. We would like ideas and proposals for remodelling the exterior to be a more up to date and craftsman style exterior of the home. Attached is:
1. The current home. (sorry it's not directly from the front but the only photo I have currently).
2. An aerial view to show the property layout.
3. Images of designs that I love from the web but can't quite visualize how to best apply them to this existing house.
Design ideas can be in whatever colors/stones/woods that appeal most to you and seem most on-trend. I do tend to gravitate toward cooler palettes such as blues/greens and grays vs. warm reds, oranges or browns - but am open to any and all ideas.
Bonus points for lhigh-level landscape ideas viable in the midwestern US
Bonus points if your exterior ideas enhance the usability of the current spaces (adds covered porch space, screened in patio on side, etc)
Bonus points if design could be accomplished on around a $40,000 USD budget
Bonus points if design includes "matching" remodel of the detached garage in the photo.
The winner will be chosen on concept and design and how much curb appeal and functionality can be added, not on the execution of the software and rendering.
We will most likely engage the contest winner on an hourly basis or project based arrangement for continuing work and blueprint style designs for the exterior and interior designs as well. I wanted to use this contest to help me identify a designer that understands my direction but can also bring some "wow" to help me envision feasible changes I might not have otherwise thought of.
“Fantastic entry, fantastic contest. I consider everything a great success. Elias really took my notes to heart in his design. A budget remodel, using existing matierlas as much as possible while still delivering a terrific impact and true to the style. ”
