New Entry and Exterior
My husband and I have been debating for months now on which home project to work on. Our options were redoing the yard, finishing remodeling the basement or to remodel the entry and exterior of our home. We finally decided to move forward with the exterior so that we could have happy thoughts when we pulled into our driveway. We have a basic brick rambler with outdated siding in desperate need of an update. Ever since we bought our house about four years ago, we have wanted to hang Hardie Shakes in place of the vinyl siding, paint the brick, buy a new front door and redo the entry overhang. Now it comes down to decision time which for me is hard in a pinch because I want everything to look good on a budget! I've narrowed it down to three looks with different hardware finishes. I'm leaning towards the oil rubbed bronze. I love the brass but with our brick being painted a light color, I think it would be washed out.
