Miller Equipment Exterior Renovation

Over the course of last week, McCarthy Architecture had the opportunity to assist our neighbors at Miller Equipment in an exterior facelift of their longtime facility.  As construction progressed, dilapidated wood siding and a dated mansard roof around the perimeter of the building gave way to metal paneling which evokes a modern industrial aesthetic.  In addition, all existing windows were replaced with modern storefront glass, while the existing front door was enlarged to become a more prominent storefront opening.  In the coming weeks, the addition of a metal canopy over the entry along with new signage will complete the project.
