Split-Level After Photoshop Redo

Disston's diagnosis was swift: "The house seemed very flat. It needed some elements that break up the monotony." So he recommended adding a 1-foot overhang to the gable to suggest the gambrel roof of a Dutch Colonial, and putting paneling around the windows. Topping the entry with a gabled portico lent it more prominence, and a bumped-out bay window varied the facade's contours even more. Warm, gray wood shingles, blackish-green trim, and a salmon front door gave it an inviting, stylistically fitting color scheme. "This is much more my speed," says Erica. "Maybe we'll make the entryway our spring project."
