|Original realtors listing picture and old house exterior|
The first picture we saw of the house had this view of the garage and exterior of the house. I've documented the color changes on the house and removing the odd looking wood decorative accents that were originally there. Then it came time to replace the damaged and very old garage door.
We had this professionally done and replaced the original door with a door that is insulated and reinforced to handle bad weather and intense winds. We also had window panels put in for more light in the garage. We were really pleased with the product and service, as well as the appearance.
Once that was installed Kevin, Patrick and Cameron put vinyl molding up for the finishing trim and low maintenance that this type of molding offers.

Finally it was time to replace the carriage style lights with the Craftsman style ones I found online that fit the look we are going for.
So here is our end result for now. I say for now because we are still considering adding black decorative hardware to the door itself. We'll live with this for now until we make our final decision. Input welcome towards our final decision : )
