The builder did the “Ok Katie, need the paint, now. No, NOW.” on the weekend. So, all my procrastination about this issue had to actually end and I had to make a decision. I ran to the shop, bought $200 worth of paint, only to decide to go with different colours after I painted a bit.
Anyway. We are going with quite a traditional look, this would have been what the house looked like originally, but with cream instead of dark grey, but we all know what I think about cream so that was never going to happen.
The roof will be unpainted zincalume so that’s the light grey strips you see on the A frame bit of the roof. I wanted a darkish grey roof, but it was this one decision that my husband not only decided to put his foot down (a rare moment indeed) but also decided to put his greenie hat on and insisted on the zincalume for it’s reflective qualities. Given his alternative (that we keep with the original painted heritage green look) I gave him this one victory.
I think it looks great, but it’s only paint so we can always repaint if we change our minds.
I’m going to start painting the fence and stuff this week if I get time… darn clients won’t go away.
Roof goes on THIS WEEK!!!!
