Walkabout Wednesday…the addition edition
Last week, I talked about how folks are tearing down these lovely old homes. This week, I’m going to show you a few that have been given a new lease on life.
This house was originally a plain brick box. It has been painted white and given black shutters. The arch over the front door was added as well.
But the best thing about this reno is the great addition in the back!
The house is joined to the new garage by this little gallery with this pretty door. Garages are a premium in BV (if there is an old garage, it’s probably just a one car), so this addition is a smart move.
Good job, folks on the corner!
The next one is a house that we looked at when we were looking. It was not darling then. It was more haunted-ish.
They painted (the part that’s white and green used to be light brown and dark brown) and built this wall.
The part on the left is all an addition. I love how they made it look like the original house. Inside the “U” shape is a water feature and a garden.
This is the other side of the addition above. The covered verandah is to die for.
See, folks…it CAN be done! You don't have to tear down and build a McMansion! Just use your imagination. (And if you don't have an imagination, you can come see me. I'm always making $hit up.)
