The House: Weatherboards All Painted

April 3, 2012

So one paint job completed - seemingly thousands to go.  Very happy with how the colour has come up on the weatherboards, although there are still a few jobs left to finish off the exterior of the house completely:

  • New windows (in white) - being installed in May;
  • New front door (in white) - being installed in May;
  • Possibly reversing the colours on the verandah posts;
  • Painting the garage door surround grey to blend in with the house (the surround was eventually fixed after the door company initially stuffed up the install);
  • Repainting the driveway and path leading to the front door and the roof (in same colour);
  • Adding grey to the front fence to tie it in with the new house colour;
  • Plantation shutters (in white) for the 2 front rooms.
At the moment I think that while the grey looks good, it needs more white to really make it come to life.  The new windows and door should make a big difference with that and once those are installed, we'll see if anything else (like maybe the bench seat) will also need a colour change.
