Exterior Updates: Our White Farmhouse with a Metal Roof

Exterior Updates: Our White Farmhouse with a Metal Roof

Exterior Progress

My friend pointed out recently that a lot has happened to the exterior of our house that I haven’t shared on the blog. If you’ve been following along for a while, you may recall that we painted the exterior of our house (we DIY’d it!) and got our roof replaced this summer. We also painted the exterior doors and installed new outdoor lights. There’s a blog post on the black outdoor farmhouse lights we were considering at the time. The exterior is still not done, but we have come a loooong way and pretty much have our dream white farmhouse with a metal roof now!

Let’s take a look at some before and afters, shall we?

Not a huge difference, right?

Haha just kidding. The “way before” photo is what the house looked like when we saw it for the first time. We knew right away that it would look cute if it were a white farmhouse with a metal roof. I explained the whole backstory in my introductory blog post about the house, but the house was bank owned and had been vacant for a while.… Read more

Ever since we finished the guest room, we’ve been focusing most of our attention on the exterior of the Daly Digs. You guys may have seen on my InstaStory that we painted the exterior of our house (ourselves!), had a new roof installed (it’s finally done!) and purchased a few new accents for the porch. We still have to finish painting the bottom of the house including the front door, but we’re moving along and I’ve been on the hunt for some black outdoor farmhouse lights to replace the miserably sad ones we removed. I thought I’d round up some of my favorite black outdoor farmhouse lights I stumbled upon during my search. I’m pretty sure we’ve decided on which ones we’re going with, but as always I plan to make you wait until the exterior reveal. 🙂

Here she is y’all! The #dalydigs. We have a lot to do, but trust me when I say she didn’t always look this good. Keep reading.


But first, the backstory.

The path to the forever house was not an easy one. We had been living in a typical stucco home that we built in an HOA for several years. Florida is plagued with stucco homes that all look the same, built in an HOA community about 2” apart. We could high-five our neighbors through the kitchen window and our yard was the size of a postage stamp. It was a nice home, but we knew we didn’t want to be there forever. Hubby wanted a home with some land, more privacy, and space for the doggies. I was hoping for a home with unique architecture not too far in the country. We put our old house up for sale, and probably had 100 showings over the course of a year. We took it off the market for a couple months just to take a break and we hired a new realtor.… Read more
