face lift…

So the Steamie House is getting a facelift.  I mean, come on, 35 is getting pretty up there…  for a house at least.

The 70’s diagonal siding had seen better days… the trim was collecting water & rotting away the siding!  You could stick your finger right through the wood.  yeeps.

Here are the “Before” pictures:

So after getting our bids, and getting approval from the dear HOA- We’re clear to take down the rotten siding, and put up new horizontal lap siding.  Construction started early Thursday morning!

Steve sent me this progress picture around noon:

I took this one when I got home from work:

Check back  for more progress and the “After” photos.

We ordered this new light fixture to spruce up the entry & it should help us on our quest to de-brass… all that will be left will be the brass on the front door… and we’ll get that fixed up hopefully when we get the door painted our approved accent color.

Sometimes it’s hard to be a “designer” and get stuck with all these HOA restrictions… but it did help simplify our decision on what color to paint the house.  One look at the 20+ options and there really were only one or two schemes we were even interested in.  And surprise, surprise… there will be grey involved.
