How to update a ranch with a white roof

Kathy KlinedinstDecember 28, 2013
Need help with this 1969 ranch. Want to paint brick and update the small amount of siding. However, roof will not be redone (to a darker color) for about two years. Ultimately would like toupee or cream color painted brick, same color siding, dark gray shutters, black window boxes and a red door. Can I do this with the current white roof or should the entire update wait until roof is done?

I'd take out the two middle columns in the front if you can.They obstruct view of that gorgeous window and the door.

Yes, that column is definitely being removed! We'd also like to make the remaining two columns a bit more substantial. We also plan on removing the island (shrubs) and planting a few trees on the property line. Oh, and the eagle above garage has to go!

The colors you have chosen sound good to me but like you, I'm not sure how it will look with the white roof. And I'd take out those decorative things underneath the picture window.
