Project Key Features




The Homeowners

Meet Jim & Kristine

Jim and Kristine desired to give their trusty, outdated ranch home a well-deserved facelift. They sought to capture the rustic charm and fresh aesthetics reflecting their style and enhancing the connection between their indoor and outdoor living spaces.

The Challenge

The primary obstacle in this venture was the harsh Maine winter, which presented difficulties with vinyl siding installation and steel roofing in cold temperatures, compounded by heavy snowfall that delayed the roofing process.

The 3-Phase Process

Jim & Kristine's Project Journey



The design process was an intimate collaboration that transformed Jim and Kristine’s ideas into a detailed blueprint for their renewed home. Here’s how each material choice contributed to the project’s success:

  • Green Metal Roof: Selected for its rich hue, mirroring the verdant Maine landscape, this durable roofing brings a pop of color and a protective finish that’s both functional and stylish.
  • Stacked Stone In Sedona Bluff: Chosen for its warm, earth-toned aesthetics, this stacked stone adds a textured, dimensional look, offering a natural touch that anchors the home’s presence.
  • Steel-Stamped Insulated Garage Doors: These doors mimic a luxurious wood finish, providing the elegance of a classic wooden design with the durability and insulation of modern materials.
  • Black Carriage Hardware: The hardware adds a striking contrast and a hint of traditional charm, enhancing the garage doors’ visual appeal and the home’s overall curb appeal.

The layout was meticulously marked with spray-painted lines and stakes, ensuring precision from the ground up. Springwood Builders demonstrated adaptability and commitment despite the winter setbacks. The expert team maneuvered around the cold, ensuring that the vinyl siding and steel roofing installation was done effectively once weather conditions permitted.
