Hey everyone! I've watched the show for years, but now that I bought an old house just last year I have some general questions that I need help with.
Quick run down of the house.
- Built in 1889
- Originally a single family home
- Split and merged numerous times over the years
- Was a rental for many years so much of the original charm is gone
- Currently a single family home and my primary residence
So what I need help with at the moment is trying to revamp the front exterior. We have a housing committee in the area that approved a front 18" retaining wall & 3' iron fence, but I need some other ideas.
The mansard roof with aluminum gutters is horrible. It makes the porch roof look too small. The porch roof is rolled asphalt and needs to be replaced, it's leaking. I was thinking of adding box gutters and swapping out for a EPDM roof.
I would love to put cedar shake singles up on that third floor (notice the halloween decoration still in the window) :D
The front of the house just seems so simple. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
