Here it is - early April - so I've been chomping at the bit to select colours for the roofing and siding. (We say stuff like that 'round these parts...chomping at the bit and such.) After deliberating over various combinations of butter yellow, soft green and ivory, I took the easy route and settled on a clay toned trio from the Hardi plank siding selector, relying instead on textures for interest rather than colour. Make it POP! with the accents! The siding is paintable so we can change colour in future if desired...and still physically able. The cabin is going to have to coordinate with a smaller log guest cabin which will be constructed in 2015.
The Husband was quickly converted from his years long stance in favour of traditional green metal roofing once I pointed out how many people had gone with brown or taupe and the very compelling case to be made in favor of the far greater range of colours that it compliments.
Do I find colour riveting? Just a little.
All details seem to be in order so now it's just a matter of waiting out the thaw and the resulting mud and subsequent heavy equipment ban on the roads and then...four...three...two...one...spring into action in...June.
