Great choices! - Loved the contrasting and complementary roof on the porch. This is a little something we could do to update. Our ranch is the exact footprint of this one. We love it, but it could use some freshening up! Could your refer me to some new ideas to replace the traditional medallion vent on the portico? TIA

Love the color choices! Can you help with siding addition color? - 2 story red brick colonial with slate roof, white trim, black shutters, white door and a siding addition off the back. We are replacing the old aluminum with vinyl and need help choosing a color. Any ideas? The white trim is staying, but can update the rest.

These windows are from Jeld - Wen and are the Pozzi series. If you do a search for Jeld -Wen you should find a dealer in your area.

we are replacing all of our 3 over 3 windows and the contractor is suggesting going back in with 2 over 2 on our ranch. I can see you have mixed the window here. What do you think of replacing all windows with more "modern"?

A slate roof is not far from your reach. Slate stands out more than any roof out there. If you want the wow factor you can add copper guides to it.

How wide should shutters be? Should you see any brick between the window and the shutter? - my front windows are 41 inches wide, I want to put criss crosses in the top of the window only. What size should they be? the top winows are 56 inches tall and the bottom are 64 inches tall It is a pleasure to look at your pictures, they are inspiring!

Shutters are actually supposed to be sized so that when they close they cover the windows completely. This however is not that common anymore since most shutters are simply for decoration. 18" to 20" is common.

changing mhy white window to black and adding black shutters, red brick house, ? how much is too much black - i'm wondering where to draw the line, should the topper on the window be white or black the trim under the eve is 12 inches of white, the front door(and porch with pillars). Ggarage doors are white with a white topper trim, the box under the window is white(3feet by 3 feet) How to apply the accents. Most colonical red brick houses haave white window, black shutters and a vaiety of white and black trim. Is there a guide line? thanks Judy

I'd go with the roof color instead of black - just a bit softer. But since you already have black, and it's smart looking, stop there - no more. What color is your front door? What color is the siding around the bkfst rm/sun rm? Maybe it's just the lighting, but it looks like a much softer color than the white on the dormers and columns. Since you already have black shutters, here's what I'd do - I'd let the white window trim be my accent color - use it only around the windows themselves. Paint the siding, including the dormers, and perhaps the columns, too (leave that decision for last, then decide if they should stay white) the color the sun room APPEARS in this picture to be - a pale gold? it appears to pick up a tone in your brick. If you can't find a color in the brick to pick up, use the mortar color. Either way, I think you'll find your house more attractive with a little less contrast. I'm from an area with a lot of this type of architecture, and it's been 30yr since anybody used stark black & white with red brick. Sage green is another color that's beautiful with black and red brick.

I am wondering what paint scheme you came up with for your house after all? your house sounds a lot like mine and I am looking to update as well. I have red brick on front of house with white trim and white garage doors. I have painted front door dark grey but also am wondering if I should paint garage door dark grey as well? I have boxes of siding under windows as well...do I leave them white? Back of house siding is all white and I have shutters that are dark grey. Roof is grey as well. What color of white do I paint exterior if I were to stick with white?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The path of least resistance. Main-level additions are often the simplest, structurally. They can be built to code without having to retrofit much of the existing home or its foundation. This can help them cost a lot less than second-story additions, which often require structural retrofitting down to the foundation, removing siding and disturbing interior walls. The only trick with main-level additions is connecting the new foundation to the old one if the original foundation is made from brick or another unreinforced masonry material. But it’s still far simpler than having to completely replace the foundation to build up.
