We have done a lot of work on the outside of our little wood house over the course of this summer. I have included a photo of what it looked like last year so you get a better idea. Before we did have shutters and a terribly dangerous ugly deck but we have replaced the deck, painted the house and put in soffets. Now it is time to put back up shutters, I was planning on painting them the cream colour that we have on the trim but... everyone around me says that I should not put shutters back up. What do you think? We still have to close in the underside of the deck with lattes.
