While going through all the useless files on my computer I came accross these pics from Aladdin. The colors on the chart are still so nice for today. We painted our entrance close to the color green shown here. Our staircase is very similar, except that this house appears a bit larger.

Have you ever pondered-" Gee with all of this extra time I have, I sure wish I had plans to re-create the wood storm windows that I once had on my house." Well wait no more!

Now is the time to think about those old, cold, drafty windows. If you have windows that are in need of a little weatherproofing , you may want to think about V-Bronze.
I'ts also known as spring bronze. The pic to the left describes how it is done. It's not hard to do. A little boring maybe, but not hard. I recommend a nice vodka martini while working. Just don't hit your thumb with the hammer.

Even though the siding isn't ripped off and the new front porch put on and all the windows fixed, it doesn't mean we can't start thinking about color. I saw this house in Princeton last year and I like it for now. I'm sure I'll have plenty of time to change my mind. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the color choice for the front porch. Gotta love those copper downspouts. Something similar here.

Wouldn't it be nice. With all of those damn acorns falling I'd love to have a roof over my car. Did you know that acorns can put lots of small dents all over your car? I think the squirrels are hurling them downward to gain more speed. I threw this carport on in Photoshop to see if I like it. I do, but sadly it's too close to the neighbors property line.
