We are moving right along on our Off Grid House construction. This week we can check off a huge undertaking of painting the exterior of our house. The biggest relief is that I absolutely love the color. I really went in circles about finding the “perfect” color especially because I knew that if I didn’t like the color I was pretty much stuck with it for a long long time! I painted samples of various colors on different boards and looked at them in all kinds of lighting before settling on the color “Krypton”. In episode 21 of the Sow Edible Permaculture Podcast, we explained all the ins and outs that went into picking this fabulous color as well as all the crazy adventures in reaching very high and awkward areas of the house. You can witness some of this in the pictures below as well! I don’t know if you can tell from the pictures, but the color looks very different depending on how much light is touching it. The trim color was simple to pick out because when you have a WHITE roof, you are pretty much stuck with white trim. Not a bad thing as I like white trim and in some ways I welcomed the idea of NOT making a decision for a change! So here is what we have so far.
Here are some of our Dare Devil pictures. Ugg. So glad this part of the project is over!!
