Need help updating the look of the exterior of our lake house
August 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We just moved into this house built in 1972. We are remodeling the inside but we just don't know where to go with the exterior. We need to have the house painted and I'm struggling with what type of color scheme to go with. We would also like to add some sort of architectural details with larger posts on the back deck and a stairway down from the top deck as there is currently no way to access the yard from it. We also need ideas for the front entrance. We're thinking of getting stained wood garage doors and a new entry door with a pop of color. Any and all ideas are helpful. Thanks in advance!

Beautiful home! Have you considered pairing siding with the exterior stone? It can make a big difference in curb appeal and there are great color options available.

I guess this is an old posting but one thing you could do is extend the deck around the corner with an open walkway to the front door on the upper level. Then you could use the existing stairs to access the lower level.

Have you started this work and are you still looking for suggestions?
