Lakehouse Exterior Ideas?

We’d like to update the exterior of this small Lake Erie cottage. Board and Batten siding perhaps with a thicker window trim since shutters won’t work with the smaller windows? The main entrance is on the side of the house and the last photo is the view from the street. Would like to cover the cinder block foundation too which shows more on the porch side that faces the lake. Thoughts on replacing the two center porch screen panels with doors and adding steps down to the yard? It would be nice to somehow carry the wood accent of the porch ceiling out to the porch exterior to dress that up. Would greatly appreciate any suggestions and/or visual ideas!
