Synthetic Stucco McMakeover

It has finally warmed up a bit so I took the camera out for a spin today.  I was surprised to see that an old house I had noticed on a previous journey had changed, umm… dramatically.  Unfortunately, I had not photographed the house earlier.  However, Google did in 2007 when their cameras were not as sophisticated as they are now.  Below are two “Before” images followed by the “After”.


In 2007 the house retained much of its original appearance.  A Queen Anne transom sash graces the front window.  Image courtesy Google Street View.


This view shows the house from an angle similar to the one below.  Image courtesy Google Street View.


And this is how the house appeared this afternoon!

      • Since beige sand-colored vinyl windows are somewhat common (even stocked in some stores), I’m surprised they didn’t make the effort. Of course with cheap vinyl, you’re stuck with the same color inside and out, and perhaps they were trying to stick with the currently-trendy bright-white interior trim everywhere.
