Michael Healy. I love this big, oversized starfish. And I could immediately visualize it on a blue front door.
With that decision made, the rest of the design started to fall into place. First step, we centered the second floor windows (which seemed a bit more logical ).
Next, we wanted to give the front facade a little more dimension. So the guys added an extension above the windows. We will use an accent siding in that space and a large dentil molding underneath - right above the windows. (I really wanted to try and get a nice shot without the port a potty, but it seems to show up in every photo!)

For the front steps, we have some big limitations, due to setback constraints and code requirements. But I'm noodling over granite steps or else a more traditional set of wooden steps with a white railing.
On the new section of the house, we're adding a door into the mudroom. I'm still deciding on a garage door style, but we'll install a big barn light over it, to provide lots of illumination for the driveway.

Here is the first window going in!! Big difference, don't you think?
