Keeping the mid-century pitched roof of the house, Davis has renovated the facade with columns and a close-gabled roof. The shingles are common to the style of both the original bungalow and mid-century aesthetic, and now bring a dose of Cape Cod-style to the house.Plaster columns and a carport have been added to one side, which create a rhythm of geometric shapes that are repeated through the house and garden.

With the oversized lattice over the front door and the added heft of white beams and columns, Davis made sense of the messed-about proportions of the old house, creating a pleasing symmetry and a welcoming porch for visitors arriving down the front path.
