After reading all the comments, more Measuring and lots of Thinking.. I believe I've come up with our design plan.
It actually came to me in my dreams... I'll take that as a sign from the Universe for which I am grateful.. Never hurts to have help from those on the other side...and this side too , of course lol
It will set us APART in this brick cul de sac neighborhood:)
Add lots of curb appeal at a small cost.
Very doable within an 8 week period-- if not sooner cause my nickname among the subs is Sonny the Slavedriver lol
Get the light, bright, happy, open, appealing to the eye look I've dreamed of. She will at last be the Home I always knew she could be while still maintaining her original character.
many thanks to all those who commented and made suggestions. You all are the BEST~!
so with no further ado, allow me to present
155 Dream Lane.. I LOVE It already
Happy Weekend to ALL and Thanks again.
repeat of as it IS now...
