Hi, I'm Ozzie Reida. Welcome to my site about residential patios, deck builds, and construction techniques. The deck is my favorite place to read a book or watch the birds hop around the yard. With the right deck, your yard can feel like an extension of your home. You can quietly relax, visit with friends or even cook on your patio or deck space. I would like to explore outdoor structure designs, materials, finishes and accents on my website. I would also like to talk about deck and patio trends embraced all around the world. I hope you will visit often to learn all you can about these amazing outdoor structures. Thank you for coming by my website. Please visit often.
For two decades in the middle of the 20th century, the Minimal Traditional architectural style reigned as the perfect fit for young families on budget. The look was similar to more pricey homes, but without the embellishments and decorative features, the simpler version was both functional and financially feasible. If you purchase one of these older homes today, it's likely you'll find that it's still sturdy due to the careful workmanship and quality building materials that were a standard expectation during that era. Don't let the home's no-frills, plain-Jane exterior keep you from making a smart purchase for a small family. Instead, update the house with top-quality, modern materials that honor its Minimal Traditional heritage while giving it fresh, new visual appeal.
Siding That's Stylish
Typically rectangular and 1 to 1 ½ stories high, Minimal Traditional houses have a reputation for being boxy. The plain wood siding, typically mounted horizontally, tends to emphasize that box-like quality. But you can kick it up a notch by replacing the old, worn-out exterior cladding with beautiful, low-maintenance vinyl siding. In addition to it's soft-spoken beauty, this one change has several other advantages.
For advice on picking the best vinyl siding for your home, contact a company like Allstate Gutter & Siding.
A few subtle enhancements make a big difference in giving a small, Minimal Traditional houses cozy, homelike appeal.
Change the landscaping at the front of the house. Replace the usual foundation plantings with ornamental grass, clusters of flowering perennials, spring-blooming bulbs and low-growing evergreen shrubs to keep the view beautiful all through the year. Complete the look by changing the front walk from plain gray concrete to a lovely path made of pavers, natural stone, or decorative concrete for a welcoming entrance to your newly attractive Minimal Traditional home.Share
