Comments: Curb Appeal

Very nice! The Gothic window doesn't seem like it would have fit the character of the house as well, anyway, and these windows let in lots more light!

The Gothic muntins are on most of the windows in the neighborhood and although there is only one house around here with a lancet window, I figured that if it was good enough for American Gothic, it would look okay on my house too. But the price of this window was far more reasonable and I'm really happy with the results.

It's amazing how much more interest the front facade has with the window and shingles. Wonderful work!

It looks great!

Good luck with the cold. We all had one and it seems that every friend and blogger I know has been sick.

Your house DEFINITELY has curb appeal. And it's so nice to hear folks say loving things about their homes...staying there...etc...With folks constantly on the move, your improvements sound very satisfying. Too many families make changes in their homes just to sell.

Btw, love your porch. I'd be sitting out there right now, if I were you! Oh, and your picket fence is super. I want one!!!

Melissa, our curb appeal is all for us. We really don't want to move. We like our neighbors and our location, and we like our house a lot too.

The porch is nice, though the mosquitoes aren't. I don't use it as much as I should though because the baby is such a wiggler and would head straight for the steps.

Speaking of American Gothic, I really think you owe it to your loyal readers to get dressed up, find Justin a pitchfork, and get someone to take your picture in front of your new creation.

Just sayin'...

(By the way, the house looks great.)

Oooh- that gives me an idea! Jay in the pack'n'play on the front porch while mama sips lemonade. Ahhh.

It looks fabulous, Jordana! It really changes the whole front of your home...just wait until there is a room there someday!

Wow, I love it! Hope you are feeling better!

Ditto! It looks super! I, too, want to know if there is a room up there....
