Duplex 2 - Exterior Vision Board
We have officially closed on the duplex next door! Today, we're breaking down our plans and vision for the property.
Because the property is fully occupied at the time and we are honoring current leases, we will be beginning with all exterior work.
Order of Operations
Stump Grinding and Backyard Cleanup
Build new retaining wall
Powerwash house/replace rotted siding boards
Update porch ceilings
Landscape and hardscape
Current Retaining Wall
The current retaining wall is a brick and stucco wall that is crumbling. The garden bed is filled with overgrown landscaping and weeds.
Future Retaining Wall
The new retaining wall will be block stucco with light colored bricks capping the top. The garden bed will be filled with tropical plants and palms.
The current exterior is painted aqua blue with some areas of wood rot. There are two large porches just screaming for TLC.
The siding will be repaired and the exterior will be painted a warm white. The exterior doors will be beautiful hardwood, which will match the tongue and groove boards on the porch ceilings. Light fixtures will be replaced and fans will be added. Bright green ferns will add a pop of color.
