    Light opinion

    Does anyone think it would be ridiculous to put a light on both sides of that back door with that one side being so narrow. Would one light look weird need some opinions

    One light, perhaps with multiple sockets/globes, centered above the door.

    Or, if there will be a deck as wide as the house, a flood, higher and centered on the house.

    All I have is "light opinions" I'm all out of "heavy ones"!

    What is that siding block for between the top windows and the doors below?
    Looks like for a light to me.
    Anyway, I was thinking the same as Larry, one, centered above the door.

    You're right; the center one even has a hole.
