We are about to do an update to our home. In my area, I can’t find anyone who specializes in exterior home design. I need major help. What I do know for sure is that we will be painting the brick. I know a lot of people aren’t a fan of that but it’s something we want to do.
We are also replacing windows, but the problem with that is the bow windows in the front. They are 8,000 for each side. I’m not ok with that. I know we are about to put a good bit of money into home to update but 16,000 is not what I have in mind for 2 windows. Can you help me with coming up with some other design on these windos that will help appearance of home and cost less than 16,000?

My other question is about these columns. I want them to be painted the same color as we paint the trim but what would you think about brick or stone columns. We would obviously take the existing wood down and underneath is a metal beam.
I’m ready to do whatever it takes to make my home more appealing. I just need your help and knowledge. We will be redoing landscaping too.
Also, if anyone can give me advice on a color scheme I would greatly appreciate that. The door will be painted.
