I have a raised ranch...(thought it was a split foyer *G*)it burned and due to stupidity on my part the contractor made off with my plans and much of the money to fix...I have been digging out ever since and finally am sanding the wood siding to paint (could not match brick,so about 2/3 of house is now siding... am trying to find way to keep it from looking like a large rectangle cracker box *G*...maybe some sort of simple portico??? It has a beige/orangish mix brick and has been a real depressing dark brown...thanks for suggestions...also bought water putty to fill in siding holes???
