The roofing contractor came by the other day to give us a bid and left us a sample board of different colored architectural shingles. About the time I think I know which would be the best color, I change my mind! I need help!! We've got white shingles on the roof now, which actually looks like light gray since it's aged. Roofing guy says that many are going to a black or gray shingle in the bigger cities, but smaller towns still using white with red brick. As you can see in the above photo, the brick on our house is all red, there aren't any variations in color. Unless you count the mortar they splashed on it in places! The trim on the house is painted white. We don't have shutters. Ideas? When you are going to spend thousands of dollars, you want to pick the right color! I will say that green or brown tones are not an option. I'm leaning toward a grayish color or black.
If anyone remembers that we were going to remodel our bathroom...that project is still awaiting the carpenter! I'd like to get a different carpenter at this point, but the man to do the work is my daughter's former FIL, and she is still friends with her ex-inlaws, so we don't want to cause hurt feelings there. He has a full time job and does carpentry on the side, so he works when he has days off or after hours, etc. Hopefully, he'll get to this job soon. We've had everything bought and ready for months now. It's time to get the show on the road, as they say!!!
I've been having a hard time keeping some of my flowers going in this very hot weather we're having this year. I bought a few replacement flowers again yesterday. I wanted to get them planted today, but haven't gotten motivated to do so. They can wait another day. Hubby gets off work at 2:30 during the summer, and we have a date this afternoon! Hope your day is a good one and that you have a beautiful weekend!!
Until next time...
