Just in time for all the trees turning in our neighborhood I finished painting the trim on the new gable in the back of the house. Since the window isn't here yet it looks like we'll wait until spring to put shingles on the walls, but oh well. Here isn a picture of how it looks with the three colors I used on the trim:
The additional colors will be the dark brown of the shingle siding and the buttery yellow of the window and door trim. We will likely use a lighter brown for the storms and screens.
The electrician is working today upstairs, perhaps by tonight we will have ceiling fixtures and fans. When those are in place then he can make the wiring up there "live" which will be great.
