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 :)
