Please view the 2 reasons G.O. agreed to buy our Dutch colonial foreclosure:
NUMBER ONE — THE GARAGE
It’s homely, strangely short + not that ginormous . . .
. . . which, sadly, kind of describes ME!
HA! — but I “keed”!
And I digress.
NUMBER TWO — THE SHED
(For a starter, that can crusher’s gotta go.)
Any-hoo, if you ask me, these forelorn structures should thank their lucky stars
we arrived, just in time to give them both their facelifts.
I’ve already described my hopes + dreams for that garage,
which is now sporting its new + muy bueno charcoal gray roof.
And soon(er) than G.O. would like, my roof spire:
He said something about it being “low on (his) priority list.
It’s at the top of mine!
Now, to the shed. It will soon have a colonial red steel roof.
Despite this ^^ colorful choice ^^
GO has been complaining about my ‘drab’ exterior color scheme.
Perhaps this is one reason why:
It’s ^^ my color inspiration for the shed ^^ — something of the dark gray persuasion . . .
. . . in my favorite — the solid color stain.
But wait! There’s more!
Those plain Jane plywood doors aren’t going to stay that way,
not when I’m around.
Here is my garage door inspiration, just down the street:
It’s hard to see, but there’s diagonal bead board here, people!
Consider it done! — on our shed’s plywood cheapies — + hopefully, soon!
