2nd story addition dilemma
February 10, 2013
Hi, I'm looking to get some design ideas on our upcoming addition. We currently have a ranch and hope to add another 1500 sq ft of living space over part of the house. The problem is I hate my brick. I was hoping to add stone to the addition but don't want it to look awkward. Most homes I've seen have stone on the bottom and brick on top. I have attached an awful mockup, pics of the existing structure, and the drawings which look awesome. I was hoping to get some opinions/ideas on stone color, what can be done to the existing brick, if anything, and any other comments you all may have. Would it make sense to add stone accents to the existing brick? Would it be really expensive to reface the front brick with stone? Ideally I like lighter stones but between my roof and the existing brick, I'm not sure what to do. Please help.
