Despite the facade's strong linear elements, the home sits on a steeply sloping lot. The only flat area was allocated to the carport. The floor plan was laid out in response to the natural features of the property and its orientation.

Rustic Green Home Exterior With Stone and Wood Accents
This private 13-acre estate features a light green siding exterior paired with wood and stone accents, giving it a rustic look. Evergreen trees line the property, while a stream and pond provide a natural backyard water feature.
Kelsey and Trip Purks purchased an older home with an outdated appearance, but it is in a great location and within their price range. The original exterior of the house was white-painted wood with red shutters and the landscaping was overgrown. They have asked Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines to transform the look of the home to better suit their style. Chip and Jo have repainted the siding a modern gray/green and the shutters black. They kept the original Dutch door and painted it with a faux finish to look like a dark stained wood grain. They updated the landscaping and added new grass, as well as a new walkway that matches the brick of the chimney.
Green Pergola-Covered Porch With Adirondack Chairs
A common issue faced by homeowners with wooden pergolas is maintenance. When pergolas are stained, they require yearly or biyearly re-staining or resealing; however, if you paint a pergola in the same tones as your home's exterior, it creates a more cohesive look and requires much less maintenance.
