Exterior – Before and After Photos

Major projects for 2017 included upgrading the exterior siding and roofing on the extended part of the house. As mentioned in previous blog posts, the extension to the main house is actually 2 separate additions. The first one was added in the early 1800’s to extend the inn (story for future blog). This one was in relatively good shape. However, the second addition was not in great shape and needed new weather proofing. It was built in the 1970’s to house the kitchen, bathroom and covered porch.

See pictures below of the before and after exterior work to the siding, roof, windows and plantings around the house.
