I am a new homebuyer, and the home I purchased has been previously stained with a dark brown color. I believe the siding is cedar panels. As a young person, the color brown is out of the questions and I was hoping that you coudl give me some advice. Can i paint over the stain with any ordinary paint? What kind do you recommend? I am also looking to add on a third bedroom. I here that it is less expensive to build UP rather than sideways. Is this b/c of the foundation? Why about a slab? I also need a new roof, for some reason the previous homeowner did to believe in gutters, and now I am paying for it, No flashings, and the moss-wwater damage is visible to the naked eye. I have a lot of work ahead of me, and a decent size budget, I just want to make sure my investment will pay off in the future!
