House Tour: Exterior

Curb view

Hello dear friends and welcome to the new category on our blog! As many of you know we moved into our new house recently. Hubby and I are excited about all our mini plans and projects that we have in mind. So this part of our blog is dedicated to all our musings about our dream projects that we plan to do.

To give you a basic lay of the land – Our house is 2600 Sft and has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths. On the main floor we have the foyer, a living room with a beautiful antic two way fireplace, powder room, a nice size pantry and a kitchen+ nook that leads to the best part of our house – the deck that looks over our lovely backyard. Upstairs, we have a master bedroom and two additional bedrooms.

Our plan is to use one of the extra bedrooms as a guest bedroom and the other one as an office space.  The house is located in a pretty little cul de sac but fairly close to the main access road. Being tucked a cozy corner we have lots of privacy and can hardly hear any noise from the street. The house is located on a sprawling acre of land and so we have a private front yard and a fenced back yard is which is perfect for our pup.

The first project hubs and I are keen about is giving our house a new dimension with paint colors. Before selling the house to us, the previous owners repainted the house to the color of their choice. While we don’t hate the existing color palette, we felt that we could do more to bring out the beauty. And so we decided that we wanted the trim to be one color and the siding to be another color, just so the house has a little more character.

After looking at the pricing and quotes we received from the painter in town. We decided to leave the cream siding as it is and just update the trim, shutters and garage door to a different color. Which will bring out the look we are hoping for.  Currently, leaning to  grey or black from Benjamin Moore.  Well thats where we are at right now and you will hear more about this in our next post.

Here goes the pictures 🙂
