I need to come up with something for the exterior of my metal home. It is very nice inside, but need some ideas for the exterior. I want to refinance with some good rates that are out there, but cannot get financing because the metal on the exterior. It needs some brick or stucco or something to qualify.....Any suggestions out there!

Hello- Your house would come up very well I think with the right reno. I guess it comes down to the old dollar issue....how much do you want to spend but I have a few suggestions that I think would really add more value to your home that you will have to fork out for the work.
Firstly, I would recommend HardiePanel Scyon "Matrix" for the exterior of your home. I have attached an image from the Hardie website.
The next thing is I think your home is too low and I'm going to recommend a re-roofing job. The roof can become more boxy and I imaging metal " I" beams with timber infill running right over the roof area and extending beyond the actual house itself to form covered walkways outside and supports outside.
The other thing....try to bring close together the two garage doors and f that can't happen, then paint them a similar colour to the exterior so that they blend in.
Contact me again if you need any further help. Good Luck!
