I hate the brick on the left, and am thinking to go over it with matching barn siding and stain the whole house a dark espresso brown, paint the trim on the windows an army green with Benjamin Moore Paints. Maybe paint the soffets and downspout the same army green and garage door, man door as well. The plan is to get a new roof (black). New front door ( 1/4 of the top of door is glass, and side lights. not sure of the color. Stone on 2 ft of the door up to the ceiling, and stone on the porch, removing the bottom step and getting a new one the same length of the front porch, and going over it with stone also. New Beams in a medium stain and beams to cross in the peak of the gables, and the tops of the 2 beams on the porch forming a V. Also Put in a Pine ceiling, & new lights. Im not sure about the windows, and thinking of getting some square grids.
I am good at design, just 2nd guessing and this could be costly. really nervous about the green, but the colors go great. I am going for that warm inviting lodge look.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
