This is primarily a curb appeal project.
I would like to replace the exterior of my house. The wood siding is rotten in many places and needs to be removed. I would like a combination of stone and siding. I would also like to replace the porch and possibly the front walkway and entry area. I would also consider a change in window trim and attic vents. Included in the design should be new paint/colors.
I like the idea of having a walkway that allows you to walk from the driveway to the front door to the other side of the house. But, it doesn't need to be exactly like I have it now. I would also consider a walkway from the street to the door.
I would like to include the landscaping in front of the house as part of the project
I am on a budget so I probably wouldn't want to do 100% stone exterior. But I would like a mix of stone and siding that is appealing. The stone is less important on the right side of the house and the back of the house since those sides are less visible. The garage has hardi siding (I've included a picture) and I will be leaving the siding as is. So, whatever is done with the house needs to blend with the garage.
Currently, there is no soffit or fascia. I would like to have at least fascia and possibly soffit.
I will consider any color combination. I will re-paint the garage whatever color the house is.
Included in this would be suggested landscaping in front of the house. Please note on the drawing that there is a gas meter under one of the front windows. I would like something to cover this up.
Combination of overall visual appeal and the cost of making that visual appeal happen.
I am primarily concerned with the front of the house and the surrounding landscape/porch/etc. I've included pictures of all sides just so you would know what everything looks like. It is not necessary for you to submit detailed plans of the back of the house or any sides that don't change. A textual description will be fine (i.e. "similar siding on the back of the house"). However, if the suggestion is to put stone on any side, I would like this presented in a picture.
Please include a description of any suggested materials (i.e, brick, limestone, etc.). Please be specific about colors.
