Home Makeover Trim Addition 'This Is It' !
We know that we said it before lol...But as Michael Jackson said, 'This Is it'! Finally, we have our home outside trim right...after 4 tries and one year!
At first, we tried to match the existing orange. Then, it was too orange - like Halloween. When we added the trim pieces, the color was too light. So finally, we finished the last 4 days with traditional brown/redwood.
Wow does this home 'pop' now! Who knew...we finally got it right! You won't beleive all the work and detail that went into this outside trim project...tired!
Thanks to my neighbor and friend John who has helped me on all these projects! I guess this was our 'fathers day' present too...Our son is in Oregon...John has 5 kids...
Rob (Our son) is having a baby, and is married now too! So now he will be a daddy!
So don't worry, be happy - this is for both photogs and dads...stay alive and stay strong!
Love, Al & Roberta
