Patching House Revisited


Last spring, I wrote a post called Patching House. In it I talked about wanting to re-side our house, which needed to be painted in a very bad way. We got a quote for painting and figured we would need to paint every 5 or so years. When we compared that to the price of siding with vinyl, we knew it made sense for us.

Before...


After...



We started off with a gray dingy, mildewy paint job. We went through a lot of color options, and we finally did decide on the barn red with cream trim and dark, dark green shutters. I was going to go with safe yellowy cream but my husband said, "Won't you always wonder what it would have looked like in red???" He knows me well.


On a snowy, cold winter day
it is a pleasure to come home
to a sweet little red house.


And yes, we're eating a lot of peanut butter sandwiches. Grin.
