Our "before" photos are actually "slightly in progress" photos.

******************
Total remodel of a late 1800s farm house, pictured below.
In this house the only thing that remained original was the victorian style open stair way to the new master bedroom. Two upstairs bedrooms were removed to make a vaulted ceiling in the living room (where the five large windows are).  We also used a oak log beam out of the old barn to use a cross beam in the living room. The log was 130 yrs old at the time it was cut in the early 1900s.  So as a tree, the beam got it's start in the 1770s.
 
The back porch was removed and rebuilt in a different room configuration. We also installed a rubberized roof over the back porch with a 2nd floor deck on top of it. The master bedroom, as well  as the owners office has a entrance to this deck.

Pictured below is an early 1900s lake cabin has been in the same family since it was built. These first photos are as close to "before" pictures of the cabin as we have. The roof over the kitchen area had sagged enough for water to pool on the roof. The floor had sagged 8 inches in some areas.
 The extended family wanted the needed repairs done, but wanted the cabin to be "low maintenance" with vinyl siding, windows, and metal soffet & facia. They still did not want to lose "the look" of it that it had when their grandfather had built it.  We came pretty close.

*********************************************
This 82'x26' home had only a 5'10'' basement under part of it with the remainder being crawl space. We lifted the whole house up 2 feet, including the garage and dug out the crawl space as to make a full finished basement. We also added new decks, new shingles, changed a few windows, as well as a new 8x16 garage door with a walk in door to the garage .
