It wasn't awful. The paint was decent. The vinyl siding was clean. The previous owner had even planted some flowers. But the house looked odd...something just wasn't right. Was it the shrubs? All the windows on the left side of the house? The massive triangle? Don't tell me you don't see it. It's right there!
Anyways..., we've been thinking about finishing off the porch for some time. I've gathered lots of inspiration, we just needed an architect to make it happen. Our amazing friend Jon whipped up something extraordinary! In Brian's words, "I just don't understand why the house wasn't finished like this sooner." That lonely triangle of a house: was it the result of a builder gone MIA? Maybe. But now we've got a plan! I'm still not sold on the proposed color of the door and shutters, but I may change my mind. Right now the shutters have been painted black and we'd like to paint the new front door red.
