I posted pictures awhile back of the interior with the new paint, laminate floors, molding and new windows and now I'm about done with the exterior. As you can see, I put on a new metal roof, shutters, skirting and vinyl railing. I would love to have new vinyl siding, but that will have to wait for a year or two until I can save to pay cash for it. Here are some before and after pictures.

You've been busy. Looks like a brand new home now. Excellent work. Why new siding? Just want a different color?

There are some flaws in the siding that are noticeable up close, but yeah, I guess I wanted a different color. Once I realized it needed a new roof I decided the siding will have to wait.

You'd be amazed what a bleach cleaning will do. Plus, you could probably just replace the individual siding pieces that have damage - doesn't look like an un-common color.
