Modern Rustic Exterior Facelift

Updated: Oct 16, 2020

Built to enjoy the view

This home, located in beautiful Richmond, Vermont, was in dire need of a refresh. Lewis Creek Builders partnered with the homeowner to completely renovate the house inside and out. The exterior was completely stripped and existing porches demolished. Replaced with durable, functional, modern rustic design.

This comfortable, low maintenance deck features Fiberon decking, which looks like natural wood and comes in a wide range of colors and finishes. Like other quality composite decking, it resists moisture and dents, is slip-resistant, and will not need to be stained or refinished down the line.

A stainless steel cable rail system was installed, a modern trend we love. This sleek design allows for an unobstructed view of the beautiful Vermont mountains. Quality cable rails are safe, secure, and will last for decades.

New windows, siding, and trim. The dark/light contrast of the window trim adds a crisp modern characteristic to contrast with the rustic green color and natural wood accents.

A patio was created to enjoy a different nature view, facing the woods. Granite pavers and steps are a lasting choice. The rough edge finish adds another layer of rustic, yet classic, texture.

A modern light fixture hangs above the entryway. Geometric (and energy efficient) fixtures are a simple way to carry the modern rustic style of this home right down to the details.
