Help transforming the exterior of our investment property - "Rib House"
June 14, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Advice needed! We really do not like the "rib" look architecture of this home, and are trying to think of how we can make it somewhat more pleasing to the eye. We're thinking of thinning out the "ribs" (they aren't structural - they were added after the house was built as a design element). Thinking of starting at left, leave one, remove two, leave one, remove two, etc. Otherwise, from a painting perspective, should we paint the "ribs" the same color as the concrete roof, or the same color as the remaining exterior? We do not want to cover the "ribs" with wood or anything like that, as it will block the kitchen and dining room windows, and make the interior of the home very dark. Thanks for any advice!
