January, 2002 Contest: If you could make one major change what would you do to transform your home?
Congratulations to our contest winner!

The front of the house. The main entrance. We would add new screen/storm doors that make a person think of days gone by. These look like screens and they are great weather beaters also. They have all the wonderful trim like “Grandma’s” did. This would be in addition to landscaping with roses, arbors to the gate, flowering trees that offer color in the changing seasons and walks of stone and brick. All of this would only accent the porch we changed a few years ago with all the trim, railings of white,flower boxes and wood floors of grey, the white wicker furniture and the iron, three light, old time, lamp post. I want the front of the house to say “Welcome and have a seat. Would you like some lemonade.”
