Example Extreme Makeover 1 Warwick RI

Extreme Home Makeover
In this sprawling one and a half story home above, sturdy fiberglass columns support a hip roof and a generous balustrade transforming this large yet plain home into a beautiful South Kingstown farm house. The farmer’s porch is further set off with the addition of barn style garage doors featuring heavy trim above. A cupola over the gable and a decorative chimney cap marry all these new features into the seamless and beautiful design seen here.

 Example Extreme Home Makeover 2 Providence RI


Chestnut Street Extreme Home Makeover by Energy Geeks
Notice how we transformed this plain Jane shotgun type house above into a beautiful craftsman style split level home. First, a new raised panel balustrade along with matching raised panel columns and a well-trimmed roof help to create a warm and welcoming entry. Wide trim applied to the three roof peaks in conjunction with generous trim around the windows and a decorative louver above come together to create a sense of quality and character. Oversized lighting fixtures flanking a custom garage door and well-appointed lattice work further push the boundaries of style and charm. Finally, after adding just the right amount of cultured stone to the front, this stream-lined beauty now looks like a doll house from a fairy tale.

Example Extreme Home Makeover 3 North Smithfield RIExtreme Home Makeover by Energy Geeks

In the project above, the addition of a strong roof supported by sturdy columns beautifully frames the new covered entry. Complimenting this stately look is just the right amount of cultured stone sparingly used to great effect. Add a custom garage door along with a perfectly scaled decorative louver above and this little contemporary is ready for the big league. Rounding off this wonderful look are raised panel shutters and crucially, authentic shutter hardware.

 Example Extreme Makeover 4 Attleboro MA


Tanglewood Extreme Makeover by Energy Geeks
This well-appointed raised cape was drab and dull at first. Look at it now! Notice the addition of three attractive dormers which help to create the illusion of a three story home, while the additional windows allow the second floor to be flooded with sunlight. Four oversized columns support a thickened, well-trimmed roof which surrounds the entryway producing a timeless look of beauty and strength. A swooping wall extension to the left creates both whimsy and privacy while visually extending the line of sight creating the illusion of a larger home. On the far right a roof supported by oversized decorative brackets adds to the interest while providing protection over the garage doors. Finally a decorative chimney cap, oversized light fixtures, raised panel shutters and authentic shutter hardware come together to round off this stately look.
