I need help with updating the exterior of our house, please.

2 years ago

We are getting new siding and a new roof so thought we would update at the same time. What suggestions and feedback can you provide? We are thinking that we'll get straight edge shake shingles for the entire front. We are planning to replace the half round windows with rectangular windows, which would be the height of half of the width of the windows below it. For example, the window on the first floor is 48 inches wide, so the new rectangular window above will be 24 inches tall and 48 inches wide. Does that seem correct? Also we will replace the columns with a more substantial square version. Thoughts on that? What trim and color recommendations do you have? And should we paint the brick? I'm having trouble visualizing all of this and don't want to make a mistake. Any ideas, feedback or suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
