Refreshing a tired exterior

This cute bungalow was in need of woodwork repair, new front steps, and fresh paint. The owners liked the original colors but thought it was time for a slightly more sophisticated version of them. The white was a little harsh in the Pacific Northwest landscape and the green a bit too pastel.

Additionally, the front steps were a danger for people exiting the house because we always expect to step out at the same level as the floor inside. A lower first step is a feng shui no-no, so they replaced them, adding that crucial step at the top.

The body is now sand-colored, the aqua has become teal, and the door is slightly less orange. Subtle changes, but so much better.
