So many people have asked me to post an update to my previous post about the new siding going up at our house. Your wish is my command. I’m posting some before and after pictures so you can understand why the neighbors have literally been stopping me on the street to thank me 🙂
This is our house before- the siding was an asphalt shingle material that appears to be brick but isn’t. We thought about tearing it off and revealing the original wood trim, hence the torn off section on the side. But once we started getting in to it, it became obvious it was too big a project, and we decided to go the vinyl siding route.
Here is the house with our new siding! The color is slate grey. We had the extra band board added between the floors to break up all the grey, and we had all the trim bumped out to add some depth to the profile.
We saved some money by having the existing fascia and trim painted white rather than replacing it. Most of the windows were replaced and new trim added but our two large picture windows are still the originals and we had their trim painted.
My favorite part is the composite shingle we had added to the third floor.
Here is the back of the house- don’t judge- we were also in the middle of adding a deck and putting in landscaping 🙂 I’ll have to show you the yard transformation another day.
I think the band board between the floors really helps add some interest back here.
Voila. I hope you enjoyed the tour- I know we are really enjoying the new space.
