This update to our house is probably the biggest as of yet. The hubs and I thought about doing it ourselves, but realized we would be a bit overwhelmed with this one. We had part of our house siding that had simply shredded over time and was causing some water damage in the walls. Wouldn’t you know it, all the pics I took before and after, I totally missed a before of the torn up siding. It was in an obscure location in the back yard and I simply forgot. But I got plenty of pics otherwise.
Here are a couple of pics of our pretty little house before the new siding. It wasn’t horrible, just very dated. And unbeknownst to us, there was water damage in a couple of places that we didn’t know about until the old siding was taken down.
I never liked the design on the front of the house. I prefer a lap siding look, so that is what we decided to go with.
Just a few pics of the house before.
And some of the water damage that was found.
A few during pictures. I’m already loving the look of the new siding.
Before and after of the front. We also spruced up the flower beds, which I will do another blog on.
Before and after of front windows.
Before and after of window box which they had to rebuild.
Before and after of soffit.
Before and after of back of house.
We still have a few things left to do, such as a new back door and cleaning some old paint off the bricks, but the biggest part is done. We have talked about staining the brick or possibly a German smear project, but that would be at a later date should we decide to. We also got a new front door and did the front flower beds, which I will blog about later. We also planted some trees in the back, and need to refresh the back beds.
Our front grass isn’t in great shape, mainly because kids play in our yard. Always something to do when you are a homeowner.
We couldn’t be more pleased with how the house siding came out.
Thanks for looking!
