The day has finally arrived! Exterior paint is making an appearance! It has been a long time coming. When purchased the house had tranzite shingles over the original wooden shingles from 1928. Those were removed. Then the process of abating the lead paint off the original wood began. Professionals taking time and incredible care removing ALL the paint and then caulking all the nail holes and between each of the boards, tedious to be sure. And between weather setbacks and scheduling issues, a process that took far longer than we anticipated.
But now time for some frosting! We have chosen Behr colors for this exterior project. The body of the house will be Hiking Trail. A creamy lighter color called Canoe for the stucco fireplace, fascia, and eaves. Red Hawk for the doors and screens and Chaparral for the Tudor trim and other secondary trim.
I think it will be such a good feeling to see some paint go up and see this Tudor bungalow begin to shine!
