Can you spot the difference between these two photographs?

Hint: Windows, Walkway, attic vent, tree/bushes...
To answer your questions...
1. Yes it's primer to be painted this spring. I was going to paint it back to its original white, but everyone seems to like the contrast and the way the trim stands out with the tan.
2. Please don't even talk to me about why the top is gray and the bottom is tan...
3. We will be re-roofing over the door and window and scraping and painting the trim this spring.
4. Yes, I promise to hide the footings with lattice and plant some shrubs!
In case you can't see it, Tristan hung up my plaque.
