Lakeside home exterior tear down help needed
January 4, 2013
We just purchased this 1969-built lakeside home in Wisconsin. The lake (10 feet away) is to the left of the picture. Many aspects of this home are out of code, and we are ready to replace the upper cedar siding and add something to the lower concrete block. The rotting deck runs around the entire house. Ideas? Also, the previous owners used the upper right sliding door as the front door, but I think first time guests wouldn't be able to know where to go. The main living is on the second floor, while the first floor (currently) behaves like an unfinished basement, even though it's not below grade. Help!
