We need to remodel. We have a 2 story home that looks off on the proportions of the gables and the windows. We need to find an economical cure for the problem. I would like to see this house with a black roof (shingle on top and dark metal around porch roof), off white paint to match the lower brick (we do not plan to paint the brick), black shutters.
On the porch, I want to remove the front rail and wrap the support lumber with a wider facade and add brick or stone on the bottom of the posts. In addition, the front porch has a three foot overhang past the concrete. We would like to extend our concrete to the outer edge of the porch overhang. We cannot move the support beams. New light fixtures and address sign on front would be good. My husband wants to add some type of overhang, awning..over the windows on each side of the home.
We are willing to add windows, or anything to make this look [login to view URL], the two front upper windows cannot get bigger or change their place due to the room arrangement inside. I will provide photos of three sides of our home that need your help. You may have a totally different idea on the design or colors that may looks good. Please feel free to express those if you have a good eye for that. We will probably do the work ourselves. We live on 4 acres with a farm setting.
