While Nick and I easily agree on most of the finishes for the inside of the house, there has been more discussion about the potential exterior paint and shingle colors. I struggle to visualize how a different colored roof might look. Enter Pixlar (a free web based application for those too cheap to buy Photoshop).
So, without further ado,here are a couple
Option one: white house with blue shingles
Option two: white house with black or dark gray shingles
The black/dark gray is my first choice, but both are worth considering. The plan is to repaint the house (in white) and to add color on the porch floor, porch steps, and front door.
With (at least?) 8-10 more weeks of winter weather to look forward to in Minnesota, we have a little bit of time to decide (and to find a bunch of people willing to help us shingle and paint for food and drink). Volunteers?
