After months of spending weekends replacing windows and installing new siding, we’re finished. Just before the cold weather hit, allowing us to now focus on indoor remodels. Update: Here’s the exterior when we purchased the house.
It was a mis matched mess of ugly blue stain, natural cedar, missing siding, and old windows. We’ve since replaced every window and door, as well as new siding.
Currently, the steel has a semi glossy sheen to it. Nothing that’ll blind the neighbors, but still.
Eventually the steel will rust, creating a contrast. Because right now the steel is very similar in tone to the lap siding.
As you can see, we decided to cover the bathroom bump out in steel. Something to add interest and break up the upper section.
It worked out well because we plan to cover the other peaked areas the same way.
Also, the lower section wraps into the bump out near the door. The back of the pool house is all steel, thanks to the funky angles. The rest of the pool house, now that’s a different project for spring/summer.
Finally, the section around the garage doors. It follows the same line, wrapping around from the front.
We’re thankful to have the loose ends tied up. You know what else we’re thankful for? Our lovely readers. To show our appreciation, we’ve partnered up with luxury linen retailer, Frette, to offer one reader a Terry Shawl Collar Robe.
