Up until the end of January this is what the house looked like. Sort of peach, with a sienna trim. Mom and I crossed our fingers and signed on for a promotional siding offer. I think it turned out pretty good.
The same guys who installed the siding for the company dame back and did the trim and someother finish work. They did they best they could with the sixty or seventy year old wood around the windows. The trim looks a little rough close up but getting to energetic with the sand paper would have been lethal.
We had lattice on the porch, We'll put a nice pot and a hanging basket up there for now. Get a little privacy but a little nicer maybe. Taking things on faith here for a retired cook and a gal who works in an office but I expect it will work out.
