As for the exterior decision, I knew I wanted darker grey and of course figured out right away that "darker grey" is not a final decision. There are so many choices still - brown-grey, green-grey, blue-grey. Flipping through the color deck, Jeanne helped me narrow things down to these:
|Felted Wool, Westchester Grey, Peppercorn, Gauntlet Grey, Cityscape|
So I texted some friends/family this photo to solicit opinions:
It was a fun way to connect with people and while there were a few outliers, the majority picked either Westchester Grey (#2) or Peppercorn (#3). By the way, I think this has been one of the toughest decisions for me because Nate did not have a strong opinion - - he didn't really see a difference between the various grays.
|Not easy to see the difference, but left is Peppercorn and right is Westchester Grey|

I'm really excited about it. We'll have to wait until fall for the siding, but that's fine with me. We've had a Tyvek covered house since Christmas, so what's another couple of months?
