I thought it would be a fun to do a AFTER-BEFORE instead of a before-after. When your eyes look at the first photo, I want your brain to say, "Oh, that's pretty." Then, when you see the photo after your brain says, "What? Is that the same house!? Let me go back." Sound fun?
I know. I am soooo crazy! Haha.
Here is the first exterior photo. It is a little beach cottage near the water. It was built in the late 40s and had this awful, gross brick on the outside that had mortar spilling out (imagine peanut butter and jelly coming out of sandwich bread!)
Yes, it used to be a sad, gray Pizza Hut-roofed home. We did a fun "green" remodel including solar heating, a live green roof and new insulation made out of old blue jeans! Taking away from the existing helped bring it up to date.
This exterior had a few changes but enough for a big impact. There are new garage doors, a new railing, new paint and freshly sand blasted driveway. Much better!
