Very dark brown –wood sided, which always needed treating --- painting, staining and sealing and bug protection, etc.
That is all changing!
It’s amazing how much these guys got done in just a day yesterday.
And it was HOT HOT HOT and humid here in the South East corner of the USA…I kept the pitchers of ice water flowing ---
I enjoy talking to the workers – this is a family business, a father and sons and they are doing excellent work. One of the sons has a 7 month old baby ---who would guess that such a rough and tough tattooed guy would sit there and show me a bunch of baby pictures on his phone, as proud as could be? I just love it when daddies go gaga over their babies :)
There are ladders and stuff everywhere..but I love the new khaki color!
These two windows are the front master bedroom and there will be shutters on either side.
The bottom level is my basement – it’s all brick so will be left as is, but the two upper levels will be dealt with today!
As well the side of the front porch.
Do you see how weathered it is? It’s a pain to keep wood in tip top shape away from rot and moss and all else.
But the part I’m loving most is the detail we are adding to the front porch area…
Vinyl shake shingles! I love the color and the texture!
Around the front door ---
The shutters will be this rust color. You can see that the old wood is underneath the door…this looks so much better!
Kind of dark, but I’m liking it. That porch railing is also going to be replaced.
Inside of the porch in progress ---These windows will have new shutters too.
Exciting things happening here. And under it all is more insulation that will wrap our house up tight and making it much more energy efficient!
I’m expecting the pounding to begin again within the hour ---
