OLD & NEW

Woodland Cottage 

Care Taker's Cottage

When we first acquired this property the roof was covered with moss – which had likely been there 20 years. Using extreme caution and delicate care, we were able to remove the moss without damaging the cedar shingles. We changed the exterior color from an off white to a taupe-gray and chose a dark, raisin brown for gutters and window increments. 

The deck to your left was originally make of wood and in need of repair. We replaced it with Trex and copied the grid pattern from 16 Beverly Warren for railings. The little cottage was brought back to life and blended better with the forest around it.

The west side of cottage includes a small deck. We did the railings and decking in Trex to minimize annual maintenance.
