Need help to update 70's Exterior Country Home
March 12, 2013
Any colour ideas for siding, fascia and eaves? Would like to keep the red brick. In need of new windows. Front entrance area needs some suggestions. Thinking of removing the concrete at the entrance and replacing with interlock brick and landscaping. This house is not seen from the road.

So are these photos taken from the driveway ? Red bricks and gray works well along with dark trims.

Yes. It is in the country at the end of a 300 meter driveway. It can't be seen from the main road.

I really like the dark gray used in the photo Dytecture posted. I also like the look of a dark khaki green with black shutters with the red brick.

If the concrete is in good shape I would just stain or tile it. I'm confused by the two doors. Or is it a window and a door? I would have them different colors if they are. If they are two doors i would replace with french doors. I would paint the white trim.

I suggest a modern gazebo to the right with big pots of colorful plants spilling over

There are two wooden doors with storm/screen doors. It's hard to tell as one of the doors are open in that picture. Would you put French doors on a front door? Or go with half door and side Iites? I think the storm/screen doors need to go. I like the idea of the gazebo. That would be a better place to place some outdoor furniture. The flower pots were would look nice and add some colour. Thanks for the colour suggestions on the siding and shutter colours. I never would have been able to picture that on my own.
