Your Welcome to the World- the front entrance

 

Building a custom home allows you to create a space that meets your needs and reflects your style. Your mind goes to layout, colour swatches, appliances, and materials for flooring, counters and storage.  Yes we want a lot of storage.  Most of our thoughts go towards the inside of the home  but what about the outside? What do we want it to say about our home?

From the minute people pull up to your property they will see the landscaping, whether we used brick, stone, wood or siding, the trim and the colour but where their eye is really drawn is the front entrance way.  This is the statement and it introduces the style of the home.  When you build a custom home what do you want it to say?

Do you want a relaxing porch, strong columns, rounded archways or contemporary lines? What about natural stone, stained glass, double doors, maybe art deco styling or a vintage look with shuttered windows? Is your home west coast style, contemporary, cape cod, Craftsman, a country estate or a country cottage? Whatever you choose Wescraft can help you translate your vision into a strong workable design.

Here are some photos of wildly different styles. Some are whimsical, dramatic and exotic. We can only guess at what lies behind these doors.
