This post doesn't begin to hold a candle to Jean's Power Range post, but it does involve more photoshop trickery.
Here's a rendering I did of the house's front facade when we were all psyched up in the time between the offer and closing.
I'm sure this is the first of many ideas about revamping the front, but I think this one has some potential. The goal would be to unify the front more to make it look less like two separate units. This would be done via a 8-10" frame around both windows that would create a window box below for wicked awesome plants that we'd probably enviably kill with neglect. We would then change up the siding in between them and it would create this awesome huge-looking single window thing. Oh, and we'd also paint the outside some bold dark grey with color accents under the roof. Where's the $ and time going to come from? I'm banking on a high likelihood of a Federal bail-out, but we could also get higher-paying jobs as a back up plan.
What do y'all think?
