As we begin to build our home I’m going to share with the items we are selecting. I thought it would be fun to have a series of roundups where you can give me your opinions on which one you like the best. Today’s topic – our exterior. I want to decide on the exterior color, roof color, gutters, rock work etc before I make my way to the inside. We are going to be very much in the woods and are located on the SC/NC state line if that gives you any insight into the terrain. I would love to pretty white house or brick but that just doesn’t go with our rustic setting (in my opinion). Plus can you even imagine the stress of having a white house in the middle of the woods? We would spend every waking Saturday pressure washing the joint.
We already have a stone picked out that is very similar to our patio and fireplace at our old house. You can see what it looks like on this post. We know we want a grey exterior and I am leaning towards a dark grey but I don’t want it to look blue and I definitely don’t want it to have ANY yellows or oranges in it. Essentially I want a rich grey/taupe color that isn’t too cool, isn’t too warm and will look great paired with black windows and a very dark roof. Not too much to ask, huh?
