Help - Curb Appeal/Updates needed for Mid Century Modern House

6 years ago

This home was build in 1967 as a sorority house. It's lovingly (that might be gracious) referred to as the Big Brown Box or the Dentist office. Without doing major construction, I'm looking for any ideas to make the place more homey & less commercial. A few details/constraints: the home still exists as a sorority house on the edge of a major University (so there is some concern with light pranking/vandalism for anything that's not nailed down). It's on a heavily trafficked road that is prone to car accidents into the front landscaping/wall as well as road salt in the winter. This is in a Northern city with a fair amount of snow nearly half of the year, so full, beautiful landscaping only goes so far. Would love to hear ideas big & small - the budget for improvements is probably small now, but in the next 3-5 years, could save for the larger improvements! (I've smudged out the letters/house numbers on these photos.)
