Our 1930 Craftsman Colonial - we want to remove the shutters and try a different color on the trim/accent. Maybe a cream w/maroon or cream w/olive green accent? We're definitely keeping the brown stain. Plenty of work ahead, but we love it!

My Wife is from Boyertown which is very close to your roots.

In my neighborhood the pre 1900 homes outnumber the post 1900 homes.

It is nice to have a thread to go see everyone's houses. So many ways to get house envy! :wink: I sure do like to look.

Here is ours from last March, before I put the new copper chimney on.

Well...it's only partially painted and it's been very slow going. The chimneys scare me. I did manage to get the fence and the other ironwork painted this summer:
