House Paint

They have started painting the exterior. The trim color looks great. We are trying to decide if more of the dormer should be painted the lighter color. It is hard to tell with the windows painted over. It won't look so heavy once that is removed.

I'm not sure if I like the siding color yet. It is a tan color but surprisingly it is looking a bit yellow in the bright sunlight, at least in the front. The back of the house looks pretty good.

I like the dark trim color on the doors.
The samples were supposed to be put up on the front dormer but they put them up in the back of the house instead. Of course it was last minute and they wanted to get started so I approved them. In hind site I should have made them put the samples on the front to be sure.
If I could do it again I think I'd go with a darker stony or beige color like BM grant beige or BM tapestry beige for the siding but hoping this will turn out OK.

They finished floating and texturing the walls yesterday. Cabinets will be installed tomorrow. The next step is the interior trim and bathroom tile. I hope to have some good updates over the next few weeks.
