My husband and myself are considering purchasing a home that has wood as the exterior. I can not tell you what type of would but it is not something I would want to keep. The house was built in 1978 and the wood has been painted over and it is not very appealing. Now we want to eventually remodel by adding on to our boys room that will be too small for them once they become a little older. NOW, my question is this, Should we do the remodeling after we're done with the exterior makeover?
