Painting Eaves {Progress}

Yes, this is another post about the house building progress. I'll have a crafty post to share tomorrow.

We drove by the house this afternoon just as the painter was driving away. He's been a busy man!

The eaves have been painted and he's made a start on the down pipes and the front brick detail.

When you chose colors at the beginning of the building process, you really only have a vague idea of what it will actually look like.

When we had to choose our bricks, roof, doors, kitchen fittings and colours etc, we sat in a room with a consultant who typed our choices into the database. We were given little samples to take home - and "imagine" the end result.

I am so pleased with how it's looking - especially seeing as I did most of the choosing.

I think the light color of the eaves and detail works well with the darker charcoal bricks and roof.

The hardest part is yet to come - choosing the internal flooring.

We're thinking of bamboo wood flooring downstairs and carpet upstairs. Well that's today's thought anyways :)


  1. It's looking good. Have fun choosing the flooring. We put bamboo flooring in our kitchen and the girls rooms. I love it. Can't wait to see what you choose. Jacinta

  2. It looks fantastic (and if it looks good during construction it will be sensational once finished!)! I LOVE bamboo flooring. We put it in a home that we built and it was fantastic; looked great and was SO easy to clean (great for spills too, as bamboo doesn't absorb water!). We went with a compressed bamboo that is 7 times more dense than jarrah. We are renovating and will do floors last of all - I'm hinting to hubby for bamboo again!

  3. I couldn’t agree with you more, I have recently shifted in my new house and we also had the same confusion about which flooring to choose, so we consulted Luxurydesignfloors- Wood Flooring and they assisted us well in choosing the interior flooring of our house. They suggested us that we should have dark shade in the kitchen and photosensitive or light shade in bedrooms and family rooms.
