Exterior Plans...

Just thought I would share some updates on where we are with the house...

I found it hard to believe that Andy was already having me pick the exterior materials for our home so soon, but after the progress made this weekend we are not that far away from needing them!

Our house is located on a beautiful piece of land that is perfect for anyone who enjoys a lovely view and the outdoors; because of this, we wanted to stick with natural tones for the exterior. Although these pictures don't do any justice for the colors, they are close to what it will be.

The siding we have chosen will be a sage green, the cedar shakes are a natural clay, and the trim will be in a wicker/tan color. The shingles are a mixture of brown, green, gray and black and work really well with the siding we have chosen.

We also decided to have stone on the front of the house which really suites the style of home we are building. We decided on a natural ledgestone that looks great with the other exterior materials.
We have double hung windows that have grills in the wicker/tan color to match all of the exterior trim (which are white on the inside to match the interior trim), and a beautiful wood front door that will have door length windows on both sides.
It is all coming together and I am hoping to post a rendering of our home so you can visualize it all together. Stay tuned for more updates and pictures of the house being built!!! Take care...
P.S. I forgot to mention I am exhausted and don't have the time or energy to re-read this so I apologize for any misspellings and incorrect grammar! :)
