Q: I am a contractor and have been asked to freshen up the exterior of this semi-detached house. I was thinking window boxes, grass and a horizontal railing for the top deck... The skylight/door/window/deck exit needs some love, as it's seen better days. Looking for suggestions or advice, color schemes and bright ideas.
