My home, although was and is a nice raised rancher in Central Pa. There was just a part of the past I wanted to preserve because not many homes have the trims, gables and dormers like days gone by so I thought I would add a touch of beauty to a semi-older rancher and VoilĂ ; the transformation turned out so very nice.

I got my dormers, trim, and cedar gable porch and even threw in a few extras like a dusk to dawn moon and star light and a motion detector light "gable style" of course. I love my home now. PS. I even added a rain barrel.

Misty,
You have really done so much to your ranch home to increase the curb appeal. The dormers and cedar porch make all the difference. Thank you kindly for sharing your photos with us! What a wonderful home you have.
