Exterior decisions.....

Brick or stone. Hardiboard or vinyl. Shake shingles or composite. We are in the final stages of making decisions that can't be changed!!! I'm excited but also NERVOUS! I have been dreaming of this for years. I have the inside figured out in my mind and on paper. But the outside?????????? Making me NUTS! I know exteriors are pretty permanent!

One thing I do know that will be there is board and batten shutters and a cupola!!! Those two items I will not live without. Now I just need to decide on a horse or rooster on the top of that cupola!

What does your dream house look like? What would you do on the exterior? I would love to hear your ideas!

I love the mix of materials. I would go hardi plank instead of vinyl I know that. But I love stone and brick and cedar shakes. I know whatever you do will be gorgeous!
