The main difference in paint price points is linked to the amount of pigmentation in the paint. The more pigment, the more expensive, the fewer coats necessary. There are other things ...

I am interested in knowing which house is the model house as there seems to be a couple of options. Most the stuff i find comes from lucking out at estate sale, flea markets etc. i have been able ...

tough one almost any ceiling mounted lighting fixture you are going to get is going to be, out of necessity, 4-7 inches thick. If you are open to recessed lighting fixtures that is the way I would go, remove the fixture all together. authentic options would be the old glass saucer held on the light ...

so is the house for sale?

surely there is an adventurous young couple ready to swing a few sledgehammers.

Hell I would be willing to drive down and swing a sledgehammer at that insane lean-to in the back.

they are what about $140 - $170? If they got them down to $50 or so I might buy, but more than likely i would continue to look for one at estate sales etc. Seeing what is capable in the price range of $15 - $70, I honestly don't see why a nice clean modern planter can't be designed and sold at home ...

yes keep the molding it rocks my face!, paint the door one color, keep it simple

if you don't want to keep the molding I would suggest removing both doors and selling them to someone who would like the molding as there are plenty of them out there.
