Our House Needs HELP
uglyyellerhouseJune 5, 2014
In case you didn’t notice my house is yellow. The colour we are changing which will help tremendously but not enough. I hate the roof line and the windows. I think they were going for a Mansard Roof effect any suggestions on how to update the look would be greatly appreciated.

Can't tell your house is yellow actually without a photo.

I don't know what your budget is but my suggestion is to replace the roof adding a low pitch to it and bring it out past the front of the house giving it a covered porch. Replace the rectangular windows and add shutters. Repaint the whole house, maybe not in yellow :) then lastly tackle the plantings in front of the house.

Do you have more photos including one showing an entire window? What is the budget range you are considering for changes? Just paint for now or replace windows, too?

Looks like you may have a good view from the back of the house?

We are replacing all windows except the bay for now the new siding color is Clay. A new pitched roof is way out of budget but it was my first thought
