Long post. Lots of pictures. Be forewarned.
We recently put new siding, windows, front door and porch overhang on our house.
It really changed the looks of things around here.
When we moved here, over twenty years ago, the siding on the home was blue.
Yeh, who does that?
Over the years it had really faded and was in desperate need of being replaced.
A strong, spring storm helped us out a little by tearing siding off one end of the house.
Here are a few pictures of the redo along the way.
We "skinned" the bushes to get ready for the work.
Building the porch roof/overhang. New windows have gone in.
Porch roof built. Old siding torn off. (The wood underneath was blue too!)
We still have to repair the threshold and paint but we've come a long way!
My very favorite part is the front door. We saw one just like it on another home, but could not find one anywhere. So we had a good friend, who is also a builder, make it for us. He did such a great job and made it EXACTLY like we wanted it!
We love our updates and are so thankful to have been able to make some much needed repairs.
