Yesterday Hubby came in the house and said we were going to go pick out siding. No notice…just a declaration. Well that put me in a tizzy. I had thought about it but we hadn’t come up with any kind of a decision. Then I though how can we stand there in front of people and decide. I am just not good at decisions like that.
We jumped into the truck and off we went. Actually we took the long way to get there stopping at a vacant house that people we know own that they have plans to tear down. We were hoping we might be able to salvage something from it. I just hate going in abandon homes..it gives me the creeps but I did and the house does have flooring that we could use. Roger is going to contact them and check on a price. Then we stopped at the Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast in Fredericksburg. It’s the nicest place and they have the BEST TRUFFLES EVER!! If you’re ever wanting to stay a night in this area, it’s awesome. They make wine there too.
Then it was time for the siding. Here’s what we have to choose from…..
I know the picture isn’t the best but I tried…
It turns out the price of siding is going up 6% the first week in March so- no- we didn’t need to tell him what colors on the spot…we could think about it over the weekend. AHHHH a huge sigh of relief.
I am not interested in any type of tan. So many people in our area have tan and I just don’t want it.
Remember when we are done, the house will look like this…
I can live with the color as is but I still don’t love the tan. Both of us like the red in the upper portion of the peaks and like the white trim.
As we drove home we looked at a few houses…most were tan or white so it wasn’t much help. We finally came upon one we did like a lot. It was getting dark and we were a bit away from the house but it was either the graphite or river bend color that is on the bottom left of the color swatches.
I was shocked. When we first started looking at siding I know I remember Hubby saying that her didn’t want anything dark. I did so I sigh and decided not to fight it. In the end, he likes what I like…HURRAH!!
So what color did we pick?? I’m still not sure. Hubby is going to call the contractor. He sided the house that we like. Whatever the contractor says, we’re gong to pick. Then we’ll have white trim and the upper portion in the peaks will be the red color.
With each decision, I’m getting a little more excited.
