Creating two off-street parking spaces along the front of the raised ranch house
November 3, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are building two parallel 5' high retaining walls along the front of the house to create a front yard and two off-street parking spaces as well as a set of stairways to access the house at the lower level. The garage will become a bedroom. The main entrance will be at the lower level between the posts that support the deck. We just demolished the staircase the previous owner had improvised. Could you please suggest a color scheme and siding for the lower floor, the stairways and retaining walls? Do you think I need to paint the brick?
