Exterior Ideas for Brady Bunch
Dream House?

Good Questions

Q: My husband and I are in the market for a new house. This one popped up in our area and I'm drawn to it. The interior is very 70s, complete with Brady-Bunch staircase and wonderful iron railings. I love the open living room-dining room-kitchen flow, and the loft creates huge open ceilings. The problem: the front is ugly.

I'm confident I can tackle the interior, but the exterior needs help and I have no experience with exterior renovation since I've been a renter. Any Ideas for the outside? Is the asymmetrical roof too much? The siding is wood — any color suggestions?

Editor: Leave your suggestions for Michal in the comments — thanks!
