We’re still in the same holding pattern on the house as we were last week. While we don’t have any bids in yet, we do have a lot of contractors asking a lot of questions, so that’s productive, at least. Thank you guys for your calls, emails, tweets, and comments. We’re hanging in there, and it’s always good to remember that building a house, while intensely frustrating, is still really just a rock n roll problem.
Since I can’t stop obsessing over the future details long enough to be all that unhappy about the present state of our house, here’s what we’re talking about at home…colors. I thought we had agreed on green-greys for the exterior siding, but this weekend we started playing with the ideas of blue too.

The blue above may not be exactly right, but I do like the pop of orange. We also really like the knotty cedar (cheaper than clear, smooth cedar) used in the house above. Below is our green design, which is more right-on with the colors:

Honestly, I would love either one…if only I had a house to paint these color schemes…
