Exterior Remodel-The Reveal

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Well the exterior remodel is done! Finished. Complete. Terminated. Ceased.

Okay you get the point!

 Do you ever imagine the way things will look and they turn out better than you expected?

 This is one of those times. We couldn't be happier with the final look, and all the products that we chose!

And just for old time sake let's take a look at what it was like when we started.

And a progress photo!

And trust me it got WAY messier than this before it was over!

And here is the AFTER!

This project all in all took us about 2 1/2 months. Not too bad. But when its the front of your house and you see it every time you pull in and out, it seems like it took forever!

We decided almost at the last minute to add Hardie Board Planks to the wall above the stacked stone. It really balances the heaviness of the stone on the bottom and compliments the stones texture.

We are loving this carriage style garage door! I think it really makes the exterior POP!

Even though our mailbox is at the street, I've always loved these Copper Envelope Mailboxes. You can purchase one similar to mine from Joss & Main

 It adds a little charm to the front door, don't you think?

 Which if you saw in a previous post about the door color decision, as you can see I went with basic white. I thought with the stone and the Hardie board planks there was a lot going on. So sticking with white to coordinate with all the white columns and trim work give the house a cohesive look. And if I get wild and crazy one day and want to paint it, its no big deal!

All new landscaping was added my hard working husband! There's some flower beds near a shopping area that he always admires, so one day we were out and about and we pulled over to take pictures as inspiration! You never know where inspiration show up! :)

He planted these topiaries on either side of the window box to balance out the bed. They're called a Eugenia topiary (Eugenia myrtifolium, or Syzygium paniculatum) it looks so pretty here and I can already see it dressed in white lights for Christmas!

Having a front porch that's big enough to actually put a couple of chairs on, has been an absolute dream!  Once the weather cools down it will be nice to sit out on in the evening or early (not too early) mornings!

So there you have it! As I said before the remodel is fini and I couldn't be happier!
