Need help with siding/decorating? Idk


Thank you for any help on this.

Single Level Ranch (2 Acres - Corner Lot)
6" Dark Bluish Greyish Fiber Cement Lap Siding w/Trim(white)

Anyhow I just installed my new door in my project house today

The wall on this face, right stops at picture view. Left corner extends another 14ft from picture view

Going to build a concrete block patio outfront of it.






Any ideas for around this door like a possible stone panel to set it off? Or just run my siding up to the brick modeling?

Couldn't pass it down. Not for 1050$ New.

How did you flash the bottom of the rough opening before installing that door?
The house wrap was supposed to go out over the nailing fin at the top of the door not under it.
I would add Storm and Ice Shield along the bottom of the wall where that stoop is going to go before the stoop goes in.
Make sure that stoop is at least 6" below the threshold.
I also would want some form of roof over that door. A dark door is going to make a great solar panel and direct sun can destroy the door.
I'd also install a piece of 1 X 6 Vinyl trim tight up against the bottom of that threshold to keep it from flexing.
See if this comes up for you. It's a design tool I've used to help picture ideas on Vinyl trim ideas for around windows and doors.

I pulled in the housewrap on all 4 sides and tacked on inside. Flashed the Sill and 4+" up on sides. Used contractor grade sealant along plate of sill. Layed my sill pan. Sealed ontop of sill pan and 4" up.


There is no more then 1/4 between that top of the door and soffit that hangs 4"(Don't ask... plz). Which either i plan to caulk the **** out of or take the brick molding off and do the trad pvc trim im doing around the windows and remove the brick molding.

But i still need something to accent this door off..

Ill keep going with the questions since i got a few minutes before work.

Area out front has a concrete pad ground level but slopped from house. Can i put a sand bed on that and patio brick it up against the foundation block to the bottom of the osb or will that cause to many issues in the winter time.

Not sure if the (Keep bottom sheet of fiber cement siding X inches away from ground) would fall into play here.

I appreciate any info.

Thank you.
