  1. I agree with Linda Sutton. No videos. Please. Slide show is better.

  2. No videos please. Slide shows are much easier to study. I also agree with ginger_g1 that the written commentary impedes visualizing the door experience.

  3. Each of these homes look great though these houses each have architectural interests. I live in a BOX type home. A small ranch with a circular driveway to the rear to the garage. I have been trying to choose new colors for 2 years. I

    1. we also live in a ranch style home, on a corner lot, the orignal color when we bought was sun dried tomato/a very dark red. I hated it, i updated to a teal bright color, everyone in the neighborhood commented how bright it made our whole yard look, the dark Red made it look very dark at the tiny porch area. Im parcel to Teal, greys myself. but i think any color looks great lol, besides red. good luck.

    2. Pick up some swatches of colors you like and tape them to the door. Then just pick one. Paint the door- if you hate it, it really isn't that hard to reprime and repaint it, but just doing something can really help.

  4. The full effect of the doors could not really be seen as they breezed by with writing all across them. Suggestion: Why not let someone give their thoughts on it as you get a good look at each house. Someone took a lot of time on this. It is a shame the effect was wasted by covering up the views of the doors.

  5. I love the red door. I have one and makes me feel happy to be home.

  6. I like the red front door on the gray house very much
