The front of our house gets hot in the sun and is faded and needs to be updated. The door will be replaced soon, and the shutters and trim and garage doors are scheduled to be painted.
It looks shabby. When we moved into the house it was shiny and new. We only have ourselves to blame for the general dilapidation of the front of our house. That and twelve years of sun.
I remember when all the neighbors were adding decorative touches to their front doors like door knockers and kick plates and fancy handles. We were daring and nailed our house numbers right onto our metal door. Everyone used brass accessories back then. Now our neighbors are doing away with the brass; it is no longer in style. Our house numbers are rusty.
In about a week the front of our house will be finished. We will have a new door and the shutters and garage doors will be another color. The sun will continue to shine on the front of our house, and in twelve years it will need to be updated again.
