Good weather = outside work!

Good morning! Due to all of the great weather we had these past few days, I was able to get a lot out exterior work accomplished. I have attached some photos of the work being done on the soffits, the rotunda, and the corbels. I have worked my way back to the back corner of the house and will continue to work my way around. Not all of the fascia and soffits need to be replaced but for those areas that do, I am installing new structural supports. This is really slow work being done on top of a ladder while balancing the nail gun and the replacement wood parts. But...it will get done.

One final note. Elle and I picked out some paint colors this weekend. As of now...we will be painting the main part of the house a dark granit gray with the shutters to be painted a charcoal gray with some red accents. The columns and windows will be repainted white and the door will be a brick red. I already painted the 9th street chimney the two gray colors. Please look at it and give me your honest opinion on the colors. I need to know before I paint the whole damn house...ya know what I mean?

  1. Looking good! It's so nice to see something that has been neglected in the past, gradually being rebuilt. The house looks great, and it only needs some touch-ups. How did the construction go? I'd love to hear all about it. :)
