The House Exterior

The House Exterior
I don’t know why I’ve struggled with consistently posting on my blog lately— I’ve been keeping myself busy -many much Projects I’ve been doing- why you ask–well -
 because building a House is a bit stressful especially when your just waiting on the bank to do their crap and they say 2-3 weeks but really they man 4-5 weeks. {insert me hyperventilating from the stress that the summer is halfway over and we still don’t have even a hole}  BREATH :)
It’s all good–
but since I’ve yet to take pictures of all the projects that I’ve been doing- I even on accident took some and put them in storage cuz they were driving me nuts here– we don’t have to much extra space. I’m gonna share with you the Exterior of our house.
The exterior I really wanted to have a craftsman/bungalow type of feel- but with a garage – cuz we NEED a garage- Need one. I also knew that I adamantly wanted a dormer/attic room-It was one place where I knew I wanted to splurge on the house- I love love love attic rooms and have ever since I played in my great grandma’s attic room as a child.  As for the details- Dave won the argument of having a metal roof– I’m not the fondest of the way they look but where our roof is going to be a pretty steep pitch it’ll be nice not to have to worry too much about maintenance on it. I agreed to it as long as it didn’t have to be Red, Blue or Green -I’m okay with the Dark Brown though.
The rest were doing vinyl siding with some vinyl shakes and white craftsman trim :)
 I’m painting my front door red {partly cuz I know there’s no way Dave will let me go with a bright yellow :)} and our side door on our house is going to be a pale blue– all because of that picture– I saw it, fell in love with it and have never forgotten it.
So it seems things are finally moving along—Yay! Were signing the bank papers tomorrow and I can pretty much kiss my time and life goodbye after that– I’m excited though– it’s gotta be better than the stress of not doing anything :)

    I go to your blog often to check out the cool ideas and projects you do. Not sure if you remember me, but I was in your old ward in Colorado, I’ve moved back to AZ. but just had to comment and say congrats on your new home and keep the projects coming. I’m inspired by your blue chair for my home colors. Thanks for your inspiration.I don’t know how you do it all:)- Carolyn Felton

    The roof was great! I agree with you, metal roofing doesn’t require too much maintenance as it lasts longer. It only needs to be repainted once in a while. If you find some holes, you can always cap them off with putty cement. That is indeed inexpensive maintenance!
