Week 45: Painting…some more trim

Painting, painting, painting…

Again just more trim painting this week.  It seems to go so slow because they have to tape everything off in order to paint it.  And there’s so much trim around the house, especially because of all of the transom windows (interior & exterior).  So that adds a lot of time to what normally wouldn’t take as long.

Besides just the trim painting, I also had to choose colors for the boys’ rooms.  I ended up mixing a couple colors together to create my own dark blue color for Cameron’s room and then I had Sherwin Williams color match it.  For Spencer’s room I had a hard time choosing.  The blue I had purchased from Restoration Hardware ended up having too much purple in it.  So then I mixed one of my own and I still didn’t like it.  Finally, I grabbed some color chips and settled on Sherwin Williams’ Languid Blue.

Week 28: Siding Progress

This week, more siding was installed.  The front of the house is almost complete – only missing the gable above the garage and the mudroom door (which is still being fixed).  The side of the garage has all of its siding as well as a small amount on the back of the house.  Not too much to write about this week, just lots of pictures!  Progress, progress, progress!

The main part of the house has all of its siding now, just a bit missing on the garage gable.

I don't take pictures too often at this angle, just fun to see it from a different point of view.

The south side of the house which is the side of the garage has siding. Originally we were supposed to have 4 windows on this side of the house, but I think it looks good even without them.

The ceiling above the entry was installed this week - it looks fantastic. Now I just need to decide if I should paint it blue or just add a clear coat!
