We’re going with a charcoal roof! I think the darker color is going to look amazing once I paint the house a putty color with green shutters next spring. My neighbors on the opposite corner (photo below) from me have very similar house styles and charcoal roofs. I’m thinking it will nice if we resemble each another?
We’re also getting new rake boards, fascia, clapboards on the side of the dormer, gutters, and downspouts. Greg e-mailed me this diagram explaining what each of those terms meant.
By the end of next week I should have a new roof. The carpenters came by today and started removing the old rake boards. We’ve got some ugly stuff happening underneath. I’ll share photos tomorrow and next week of the entire process. For now let’s just relish in the fact that we’re getting a new roof and it’s going to be charcoal, yay!
