1 We decided to have the house painted in early fall of 2008. We wanted a deeper richer color than the original light pastel peachy cream. The winning color combo was Sherwin Williams 'Trusty Tan' and 'Casa Blanca' for the trim. That's trusty tan in the middle. In retrospect it looks to have more gray in the sample square we painted compared to the actual color when the house was painted.
2 Here's the 'before' photo of the house showing what it looked like after we dug out the overgrown ligustrum hedges across the front of the house. Also note that there is no decorative border around the bonus room windows above the garage.
3 So I hired a stucco guy to replicate the decorative border around the other windows.
4 Day 1. The painters from Connelly Painting (Oveido FL, highly recommended) began sealing the windows/doors/etc in preparation to applying the seal coat.
7 They taped everything! Including the garage door remote.
10 Spraying the trim color on the soffits.
11 Day 2: Spraying and back rolling.
22 At the end of day 2.
23 And then on day 3, the finished house.
31 As a part of extending the driveway and having the house painted, I also took out the strip of lawn between the house and the driveway and planted some Plumbagos and mulched.
34 With the driveway extension I can leave the boat trailer hooked up to the Excursion and not block the garage.
