The outside of a house I own had been bothering me for a while (read: years). Even though it's along one of East Nashville's most beautiful and beloved roads--Eastland Ave.--I didn't feel it was quite up to snuff. I mean, have you seen the historic mansions around it?
Within a day, we accomplished this transformation:
Here's what we did:
Put up a railing to create a more defined front porch
Added cedar columns
Added cedar shake siding to the gable and also in a row beneath it atop the fascia
Painted the edge of the gable
Painted both the front door and the front porch swing a deep brown
Painted the concrete front porch
Painted the window trims dark green and light brown (a similar color to the cedar shake--to further tie it in)
Here are a few more snapshots:
I have great intentions to add some killer landscaping in the near future, but in the meantime, I feel like I've already added tremendous value. And I'm feeling better about it's place in the neighborhood. A big, huge thank you to Jeremy Seaton and my parents for donating so much elbow grease this past weekend.
What do you think of the final result? And have you undertaken any remodeling tasks of your own recently? I want to hear about them.

"I can honestly say I would not have found the home of my dreams without T.J. Anderson! I bought my home last fall and he was incredibly patient, knowledgeable and made me completely comfortable throughout the entire process. He handpicked the house of my dreams and despite it having several other offers on the table he worked his magic to make it mine. I cannot say enough great things about him! I would tell anyone looking for the right agent to either buy or sell a home to work with him...you will not be disappointed.
