could I DIY this? whitewash the brick at front of the house - love this image. Entrance to a white washed brick house with rusty metal planters on either side, whitewashed stone stairs, a black front door, and lantern style lights
Good example of breezeway idea. I don't like the look or function of an attached garage, but I like the breezeway concept. It acts as a mudroom and a good connection between the house and cold/smelly garage.
