When I was a teenager, my family lived in a traditional two-story house that was built in the 1960s and looked pretty much like this, black shutters and all. So when I read that Cushing Custom Homes updated the exterior and added a new kitchen onto this one in North Wilmington, Delaware, I was eager to see how it turned out!
The House After the Exterior Makeover:
Cushing says they gave it a “Complete exterior facelift with new siding, windows, front door, painted brick, painted shutters, cupola with copper roof, front entry and columns.” I love that they updated the house and gave it fresh curb appeal while maintaining its original traditional look.

The space features a stone fireplace and reclaimed wood beams.
