Award-winning MainStreet Design Build Turns Ordinary Into Extraordinary
Birmingham, MI – June 1, 2015 – MainStreet Design Build recently completed an exterior renovation of a Southeast Michigan home, transforming it from a post-war, plain bungalow into a charming cottage. Located in Ferndale, the home suffered from a lack of character and curb appeal. The SE Michigan-based, design/build firm approached the project with the same level of thoughtfulness and attention to detail they’ve become known for over the past two decades. By partnering with the homeowners, MainStreet’s renovation experts were able to design an exterior detail that showcases the home’s very best qualities.
Before the renovation, the bungalow presented a less-than-friendly façade. The stone and brick were in great condition, but the nondescript porch and plain clapboard siding gave the front exterior very little personality.
MainStreet designed the new pitched-roof entry portico to align with the roofline of the main gable in order to create a whimsicle and welcoming entryway.
Red shutters and window boxes with matching corbels enhance the cottage-like feel. Pleated copper roofing on the front window and side door serve to add interest and draw the eye in. The effect is a lovely and imaginative exterior that has quickly become the envy of the entire neighborhood.
“While we all know that it’s what’s on the inside that counts, when it comes to your home, the outside is equally important.” said Steven Ramaekers, President of MainStreet Design Build. “An updated exterior does more than just increase the value of your home. It makes the daily experience of coming home so much more enjoyable.”
With a fierce commitment to providing every client with a comprehensive design/build service offering, the MainStreet team takes pride in ensuring each luxurious detail is carefully chosen and each aspect of the project is done correctly. The company’s loyal clients and numerous awards are a testament to their luxury design expertise, superior craftsmanship and friendly and reliable customer service.
