Is my new siding ugly!? Did I screw up!?


In general, I think vinyl siding is just ugly.. this just looks like regular vinyl siding to me.. nothing especially bad...

is this the front of the house?

Is my new siding ugly!? Did I screw up!?


Sure; I have always prefered the masonry, wood, and craftsmanship of older homes, but it wasn't an option for me (many factors). I wanted to do that lower portion in brick, but that would force me to tie it in at other places, pushing up my cost and my time.

Anyways, yes, it is the front of the house. The fact that you say it doesn't look bad is good enough for me. When we first did the yellow'ish BnB against the wicker my sister's first comment was more to the effect of "Ew", so I had to come here for some second opinions. Plus we didn't know what to do on the lower portion, which we since have decided to go with the horizontal siding. Thanks for everyone's input and help.

Cheers!

Very tidy and professional. I'm toying with replacing my tudor look above the brick with board and batten. Wish I knew how to look at it with photoshop.
Just one comment and the windows are great, but the center piece arch seems just a bit lonely without something tieing it down into the shutters below or am I off base ? Play with the photo shop , but congrats. If your wife likes it, thats a home run anyday!!!!!!

You definitely went the right way with the horizontal. The one thing I would add that would give some life to the garage gable is a half round decorative vinyl gable vent. It would mirror the roundtop window and give some balance to the overall look. Total cost if you do the labor would be under a hundred bucks!
