Hello! We are in over our heads doing a near-total redo of a 1930's 2.5 story American Four-Square type house. The exterior is very shabby and consists of old white cement/asbestos (we know these have to go eventually) shingles. Some are cracked or missing altogether.
Our ultimate goal is to replace it all and side everything but we have other major things that need to be done indoors. However, I was thinking that, as a courtesy to our neighbours, who have put up with years of our unsightly facade, we'd possibly scrounge the cash to side the front of the house and replace cracked/missing shingles on the sides.
I know the house would look slightly schizophrenic for a while but any change would be better than how it is now :o
Is this a bad idea? I appreciate your guidance!
