So I have been searching high and low for inspiration for the exterior portion of our remodel. It's true that we are not quite done with the inside yet, but I CAN NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE!
When I pulled up to the house last week after being away for a few days, I knew I had reached the end of my rope. Something had to be done with the outside of the house, or I was going to have to permanently attach a blindfold to my face.
So........we started digging. We have always thought we would get rid of the old rock wall, but the thousands of dollars we could save by keeping it, are making that old wall look better and better.
We have settled on a Craftsman/Cottage/Cape Cod look for the outside. And as it turns out, lots of Craftsman homes have rock walls that look just like ours!

Is it just my imagination, or does it look better already?

We also have a red brick path similar to this one......
