Exterior Facelift GOLD DANIEL CONTELMO ARCHITECTS Poughkeepsie, N.Y. dtcarchitects.com Project name: Gambrel Entry Project location: Bedford, N.Y. Square footage before: 2,596 Square footage after: 2,782 Project cost: $250,000 e homeowner wanted a renovation that made the maximum impact with minimal disturbance to the interior. Building a new roof on top of the existing low-profile roof decreased demolition and produced a complete alteration for the exterior of the house. Several dormers were removed to make room for a large gambrel roof over the structure and give the entrance more importance. Retaining the existing window and dormer locations when pos- sible reduced the amount of waste generated from the project. e pitch of the roof was steepened to increase clearance in the attic and create additional prominence. Although few architectural changes were applied, a conscious effort was made to improve the quality of materials used in the new roof and formal entry porch.
