For three months I’ve been giving the blow by blow on painting the exterior of the house. The color: Sandy Hook Gray by Benjamin Moore.
Finally it’s time for a walk-around.
We’ll be considering foundation planting in spring. Part of the issue will be to mask the electric meter.
Walking left toward the side porch, this is the driveway side of the house and the side that is seen by anyone approaching from the street.
Farther down the driveway the old house (on the right) and new addition (on the left) blend together. The door on the porch used to be our kitchen window before the renovation.
As we look around the back corner the kitchen bump-out is conspicuous.
The back of the house has new additions flanking the original dining room (double windows), the two-story kitchen/master bathroom addition on the right and the conservatory on the left.
Continuing east the conservatory replaces our old porch and adds a full bath on the ground floor.
The living room and conservatory have east facing walls.
And finally the southeast corner takes us back around to the front.
After looking at all the photos of the painted house Charlie and I have discussed a few more painting projects that we’ll mock-up and work on when the weather is nice. You might be surprised.
What favorite or versatile shrub can you recommend?
