Exterior Side/Architecutral Detailing Questions
We are buying a 1888 Victorian home and our first order of business is to seal and finish the exterior of the home.
I should mention that the house next to it was an identical twin when built and has been restored (though over the years different owners have made different remodel decisions and they are now more like fraternal twins than identical twins).
The previous owner started to add (pardon my lack of correct terminology here) dog eared siding (shingles?) to the front and side bay windows. The house next door has them too but theirs "bell out" over each window like an eyebrow protecting the window. Ours are flat.
How do we get ours to form a "bell" shape or "eyebrow" shape so they flair out slightly over each of the four windows?
Here are pictures of ours currently - see how it's a straight vertical plane instead of a flair?
