Kelsey and Trip Purks purchased an older home with an outdated appearance, but it is in a great location and within their price range.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.
Covered and enclosed on three sides, this outdoor room links to the rest of the home via sliding doors in both the dining and living rooms. When nights get chilly, a pellet stove heater in the corner warms the space.
The decking on this small front porch is ipe wood and the ceiling is clear cedar. The vibrant lime green shines next to the wood. A built-in heater in the ceiling warms the gray wicker loveseat, which is adorned with white cushions.
Green Renovated Home Exterior With Post-And-Beam Porch
In one of their more ambitious exterior makeovers, Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines re-pitched the roof line of this home and dramatically enhanced the entry with a porch bump-out that features post-and-beam construction. The exterior is further dressed up with fresh green paint, contrasting black shutters and new stairs and railing.
