The crew started on the west side and moved around the back of the house to the front. It was fun to see the color. I think it's a little darker than I planned. But, I've realized that it will look nice in the glaring sun and won't get washed out as quickly, so that was fortuitous.
They actually started by applying the darker trim around the windows and to frame out the planes of the exterior. Then they taped off the trim and applied the main color.
This side above is finished and ready for the scaffolding to come down and the picture below is the back view all finished.
This is actually a good shot of our property. If you look very hard, you can see the orange flag, in the bottom right hand corner of the picture. I've drawn in approximately where our property lines are. It's tough to create 3D ideas easily and quickly on a 2D picture. The line actually goes underneath the trees and ends up behind them. Rob is struggling with this picture and says it looks like the lines are floating in the air.
While the stucco crew was working on the garage wall, these two men were getting a good start on our rock! It's fascinating watching them because it really requires some artistry.
And, our neighborhood is really growing. We won't be the only ones up there in the dark after all. There are currently six houses in various stages. One is finished (the parade home at the bottom of the hill). One is almost finished (a spec home waiting for buyers to choose finishes), one is framed, and two have their foundations poured. You can't see two of the houses from this view because they are hidden by the hills.
