Remodeling Features: Entries & ‘Street Presentation’

Dressing up Entries adds a ‘welcome’ to your home . . . it shows visitors where to find you

This is a gallery of some of our entries we’ve done over the years.  Several of these had been double door sets.  They usually range from five feet wide to six feet wide jamb openings.  That allows for one or two sidelights and a single door.

Entries - changed from double doors

This home had a mid-1970’s entry with double doors and a low roof line over the entry. The door and sidelights are a nice change both outside and inside of the home. The sloped entry ramp is also a nice feature for a couple that likes the better access and flow in the front yard.

Same home as above.  This is a new backyard entry that was part of a whole-house remodel.


Interior entries

New entryway – This space had a low and vaulted ceiling that is gone, and the adjacent upper wall is opened to the dining room. This opens up the home to the beautiful rural setting in the hills of Santa Rosa.
