The Last Stretch of Construction

Posted Monday, Dec 12th, 2011 at 7:15pm

I struggled mightily with color. It is such an impactful decision! Even more so because I planned to paint my house the same color as the little house next summer. Here are some of my color studies that the painters were kind enough to work around:

test color1

test color2

Well I had one color I was set on: Sherwin Williams "Watery." It seemed to capture the color Celadon perfectly. so I chose that, for the top half of the siding and worked around it for the other colors. Here is the pair of top and bottom colors I settled on:

top and bottom1

And I didn't like it! The top color seemed off - too bright and tropical. The painters said I could change the top color for a mere $475 and I jumped on it. Here is what I had them paint:

top and bottom2

It is still wet.

Thankfully I like it! And they only ended up charging me $225 because it was such a close match they didn't need a second coat. I actually think I love it.

Here are some handsome numbers:

Here is how it looks with its creamy white trim:

On December 11, I hosted a open house for neighbors and friends to come in and see the little house they had watched being built. Here are a couple of shots of the open house. I was delighted that a ton of neighbors dropped by.

The woman in the green fleece holding her baby is one of the architects. Her name is Wendy Swift of Swift Architecture. In the picture below is her husband, Jason Swift, the other architect on the project:

Here is a shot of the new guard rail John E. put up the day before the open house:

That's all for now. Tenants (friends) are moving in in five days!.

    from the inside it looks GIANT! I like your final color combo...looks nice, but I have to admit that I couldn't take my eyes off of the BLUE BLUE sky! That is something I have yet to see in person in Portland. Happy new house!
