Countryside Make over traditional exterior
 

Countryside Make over

This project features an award winning front facade make over. The existing mansard roof was framed over to create a new look that provides some solid curb appeal! The interior of the home did not need to be modified to accommodate this renovation, since all of the construction occurred on the outside of the home.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to How to Pick a Mailbox That Really Delivers
Many homeowners choose the color of their mailbox based on the color of their home and the other accessories on their porch and front yard. Black is our favorite choice for adding contrast and curb appeal. It is classic and clean and stands out.
5. Mount a new mailbox. As with a light fixture, swapping out a tired mailbox makes a world of difference. If your existing mailbox is a traditional post model by the street, you may be able to remove it in favor of a wall-mounted style or a door slot — consult your local postmaster for regulations and specifications.

Again, I love the blue color, stone on the bottom, white pillars, trim around the windows and door, wooden ceiling over the entry, and lantern style porch light. I think the front door should be a darker wood however.
