Help!! I hate the front exterior of our new home!!
April 25, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We had planned on building a new custom home in the small town we are moving to. When we couldn't find a lot, we had to start looking at existing homes. We wanted to live on lake so our only option was this 1968 ranch. I hate the front of it and it makes me cry looking at it. Our plans we had drawn up when we were going to build was a large craftsman ranch. With peaked gables, and stone column porch. The roof on this is crazy. Can anyone offer some help? Since we are moving to a small town all of the contractors are uncomfortable trying something new, and their ideas are way outdated. I would love some help! The first one is the home we are buying, and the second picture is what we wanted to build. Can we somehow make this new house have a look and feel like the craftsman we wanted? Thank you!!
