Our house on October 30, 2012
Taking a closer look: then
And because my photography skills are suspect, you should note that the before pictures have grey vertical T1-11 siding and a red front door (and rickety wooden storm door that didn't fully latch and often blew open with a bang during storms.) The after pictures have sand/tan horizontal vinyl siding and a forest green front door with full glass (retractable screen) storm door.
We have wanted to change those front windows since we first looked at this house five years ago (and bought it four years ago.) But other expenses took priority until now. We are VERY happy with the change and loving the natural light in the living room! Now, what's the over/under on how long the "temporary" paper shades will remain in place there before I make a decision about window treatments?
