We would like to update the exterior of our house but are having trouble deciding where to start. It has painted, wood siding (planks are approximately 7 1/2 in). Can we try to do board and batten with the existing wood and then paint or just focus on painting? What paint colors would be good for the side, trim and door? The house is on a lake. The neighbors houses are white on one side and beige on the other. Any suggestions are very appreciated!
