Hi all, my wife and I bought and moved into our house close to a year ago. We have done lots of bits and pieces to make everything nicer. However we are lost as to what to do withe the facade. The entire street is beautiful Victorian weatherboard. Ours however is fairly awful dark red brown brick, and a verandah with arches. We were thinking a couple directions... 1. We think maybe the house was once weatherboard, so possibly taking it back to this. However I imagine it would be terribly expensive. 2. Some sort of render option. However to the right we have a driveway that is very very tight, and adding thickness to the wall might be troublesome. Also not sure the best render option or colour scheme.
3. Maybe a combo. Front Victorian weatherboard, the rest rendered.
Also not sure what to do about the arches. The roof goes completely over the verandah of that makes sense.
The fence and gates I suppose is something that will come after.
The trees, I'd hate to see go. A fully mature lemon and olive tree Id rather not loose.
Anyway, keen for any thoughts, tips, pointers and ideas.
