Cedar Homes Bring Travelers to the Mountains

Written by Roxanne Ecklund on April 28, 2016

Many times when we think of the mountains, we think of the crisp fall air, or the light snowfall of a cold December night. What we fail to realize is that summer months are prime time for mountain travel. With perfect weather, and endless outdoor activities, cabin fever can hit just about any time of year!Over the years, we’ve had the opportunity to work on several gorgeous rustic mountain homes, freshening up or revamping their entire exterior. We’ve done this all while protecting the homes from frigid winter temperatures and outside elements that eat away at ordinary paint products!One of our proudest projects is this mountain cabin that went from drab to dreamy overnight! It’s original color was dark and worn, but the new cedar toned coating brought this cabin back to life. Surrounded by gorgeous scenery, we think that wrap around porch is the perfect place to spend an evening basking in the beauty of the night sky, or sharing a morning cup of coffee with family and friends.

It truly is amazing what a little color can do to a home. This dreary, worn down farmhouse appears to have doubled in size with its new white exterior. It’s cheerful, bright, and incredibly welcoming. And this look is guaranteed to last for the next twenty five years! Surrounded by acres of gorgeous land, this southern gem looks to be the perfect place for a peaceful weekend getaway. And lets face it, we all could use a break from the real world every once in a while.

The best way to escape reality? This shabby chic cottage. With a touch of New England flare, this mountain home is truly unique, standing out amongst its neighbors. Its fresh new coating gave this home the splash of color it desperately needed to make a name for itself. And boy, did it do just that! Its warm undertones and charming style takes us back to the comfort of our childhood, when times were different, and life was a little bit more magical. This whimsical cottage is truly the perfect place to spend an evening outside, chasing the glow of firefly lights at dusk.

This mountain home revampted its outdated exterior with a fresh updated cedar coating that’s durable, long lasting, and has become extremely popular in recent years. This cabin looks brand new, and makes a statement even from a mile away! With beautiful curb appeal, and fantastic mountain views, who would ever want to leave?
