SUGGESTIONS FOR NEW EXTERIOR!
lrb945June 12, 2013
we have changed the entry of our house by adding a deck, getting a new front door and having stone installed on an "accent" wall. now, we have to decide on a new look and color for siding for the rest of the house. we live in a wooded rural area, but we like contemporary/folk arty. the garden front left is all native plants, and we have a lovely lake view downhill to the left. prefer eco friendly materials.

In a wooded area, I would prefer to see the trim painted out to a dark brown, grey, or black.

the trim around the door is now black--see second pic. however, all of the windows are vinyl replacements that were here when we bought the house. do you know how to deal with white vinyl?

Lovely landscaping! Can you please attach a close-up of the stone?

There should be some paint experts showing up, but I do believe you can paint vinyl.

here are stone pics. it is a local stone, dry laid. we do all our own work, normally. this one we had a professional stone mason tackle, though. good thing, too. he went through several very expensive saw blades!
