Number 11 Sixth Avenue is the type of project that we, as builders, love. Under continuous ownership since 1983, this year brought a total transformation to this cozy second home. Once adorned with T-111 interior walls and pickled trim, Number 11 has stepped out from its dated vernacular of 80’s Beach Cottage and into the new century with its sharp lines and coastal contemporary style. While only adding 400 square feet, no detail was left untouched. Behind the walls, new insulation, wiring and mechanical systems were replaced. Outside the walls, the home received new cedar shake siding, Andersen windows, a standing seam metal roof with skylights, custom casework, tiled baths, and a maple and stainless steel railing. Seeing is believing, and Number 11 sets the pace for what can be done with an existing home.
We would like to express our pride in our team of subcontractors who gave us their best every day on this challenging renovation. As always, they delivered an incredible project that continually exemplifies the very best of Outer Banks home building.
