exterior remodel with photo

bluemtnhomeFebruary 20, 2014

We bought this fixer upper. Lots going on inside, but I don't know what to do outside to modernize and tie in the old addition on the right. Definitely getting a paint job and new roof. We want a covered porch and I thought this could be used to give the house a better look. I can't imagine how that would work with the existing roof lines. Our budget for the porch is around 25k. Don't know if that is realistic. Ideas for the porch?

Is this picture the front or the back of the house?

You could bring a new roof line of the existing home. You could tie it in like in this picture.
