Subtle features on this home's front exterior steer it towards contemporary instead of traditional. Minimal, modern landscaping, no ornamentation and sleek sconces framing the front door give the exterior a contemporary vibe.
This curb appeal of this home in Lorena, Texas is greatly enhanced thanks to some of Chip and Joanna's improvements -- including a freshly painted exterior, new shutters and much improved landscaping. Before the renovation, the house was drab and scarcely visible from the road due to overgrown and poorly placed trees.
The materials used in this home have been selected to reflect the sunlight and reduce the heat island effect, as evidenced by the light colored stucco, natural stone and single-ply rolled roofing for the flat roofs.
