Paint a story

While Steven was traveling on business for ShowStoppers in Berlin, David Garcia and  his team of painters went to work on the exterior of Emerald Hill.

The scheme is Sherwin Williams Wall Street¬†for the body of the house — siding on the second story, brick on the first; Cyberspace for the fascia boards; Snowbound for the underside of the eaves.

Wall Street is a cool grey with blue tones exposed by strong Texas sun; the darker Cyberspace defines the horizontal lines of the house; the white of Snowbound reflects light and makes the house feel lighter.

Here are shots taken of the painting process across a week.

Monday, 7 September -- the siding on the second floor is painted while the brick on the first floor has been primed.
