Evolving Exterior

  • 8m
  • Advanced
We bought this small house in McKinney, Texas with the idea of fixing it up and turning it into a family home. The project has been more challenging and more rewarding than we ever could have imagined.
The Summer after we bought, we tore off all of the damaged vinyl siding to find cypress in fairly good condition. We chose a fun paint color to bring it to life.
In the Fall of 2014, we delved into an extensive restoration/addition project that added a master suite and a new kitchen while gutting and restoring much of the old house.
As with all old houses, there is still more to come, but we're loving the process. Thanks for looking and feel free to stop by our blog!
