What Houzz contributors are saying:

Connect to the yard. The most common addition has to be the one that attaches onto the back of the house. Usually, especially in older houses, these are kitchen and / or family room additions. A great advantage to an addition like this is the ability to strengthen the house's connection to its yard. Here, new doors lead to a new outdoor room complete with furniture.
Making a match. Anytime you add to the exterior of your home, you must carefully think through how the addition will either match or purposely not match the finishes of the original house. If your home has weather-worn wood, unmatchable vinyl or brick that’s no longer made, you will have decide whether to replace the siding on the entire house or have the addition not match.Consider windows too. If you have leaky old single-pane windows, it may be time to replace them all with energy-efficient versions. A whole-house exterior makeover can up a project's cost, but it can also yield a unified, updated look for the exterior that makes your addition look like it has always been there.
10. Choose the right roof. Like the driveway, the roof is one of those things that, when it looks right, you may not notice at all — but when it’s wrong, it’s really wrong. If you’re facing the prospect of putting a new roof on your home, the practical must come first, naturally. But once you narrow your options down to a few good ones in your price range, it can be worth it to consult a designer or color expert to help pick the material and hue that will work best with the style and color of your home, as well as the landscape.See 8 ecofriendly roof optionsTell us: What did we miss?

Wood is the most beautiful exterior in the universe!! This home has it all! Lap siding & cedar shingles, wood windows, along with a slate roof and copper bays - could this be the the gold standard of warmth?? Talk about "WELCOME HOME"!!! BRAVO!!
