This is the area I am concentrating on this week:
The area to the far left of the picture is over a drop-off that is reachable with an extension ladder. I'm NOT doing that.
I will also be working on painting around the patio door and side windows at the right side of this picture. That is my studio room.
The color story is this: When we bought the house 22 years ago, and when we repainted 18 years ago the trim color was dark brown.
About 7 years ago we had all the decks rebuilt, and at that time Craig selected the terra cotta color seen here. It went with roof at the time, but I didn't like it very much. I thought it was too much of the sienna color and reminded me of a bridge.
At the time, He painted all of the new raw wood associated with the decks, but never finished the house.
When we choose the new roof, the terra cotta color was not compatible, and we decided to switch back to the dark brown color. I told Craig we could keep the beams and supports structures of the decks in his color, and just do the house trim in brown, but he says thats not "right" and so it will all get redone.
