Paint out buildings same or different color??
« on: January 18, 2018, 08:53:30 AM »
So, as you knuckleheads (and some boneheads) know, I am off building yet another shed/building/thing down at the farm.

I am at the point where I need to decide and go buy the paint for the thing.

Now the main shed/house/building/barn thing is red with green trim and a green metal roof, and so is the outhouse, they match.

The camper is light-mid gray with green trim and a gray roof, and so is the water containment structure built along side it.

The pavillion and the newly constructed deck is unfinished as of now awaiting more woody parts before staining/painting

Further down, maybe 200 meters south, and visible are two large hunter green water storage tanks and they will reside alongside a similar colored pump house (Because I wish that all to sort of blend into the landscape.

My thoughts were to stain those structures an oxford brown with maybe a hunter green trim, and both of them have green metal roofs.

This new shed will sit across from the shed, perhaps 25 feet away in a landscaped flower bed and rock wall looking area.

I am not really wanting to do red/green with a green roof scheme again, but I was wondering if it may make the arrangement look a bit junky

But I want to do something a bit different and "pretty" for the lady. She is a bit tired of my OD green theme all the time, and all that

So, not that I am going to pay any attention what so ever, but what say yee?  Poll time??

In plain speak not that ky slang stuff that is gumming up this thread.....

First I noticed Ken must still be sucking up to the boss & Charles is now thrown in with the likes of me. Realize this is fine and dandy with me because A) Charles & I both like whiskey (thinking Ken drinks cosmopolitans or something fu fu). Then B) Charles is also a Glock guy (you know new technology versus the stuff prior to dirt er 1911?s...).

So next order of business, you must realize if Don doesn?t want us voting that really isn?t the case. You see what he really wants, votes aside is for a couple of us DOT?s to muck up the thread even more than he already has & add a bit of finesse. Then tell him the rainbow version of his vision here for the farm is all wrong, more hippy stuff. I?m thinking commune, you know that stuff Ken buys into with H taking a village to raise kids n all that.

In fact it gets me wondering if Don isn?t already ?growing crops? down at the farm and possibly have sampled a bit too much this am? If any question my theory just go to the above paragraph where Don is now hanging with Ken & we all know who he is fond of. No not Don, well yeah him too but I?m talking about cankles here......

Colorado, legally has more breweries than any other state (I didn?t check but this was the case prior & We have Coors & Budweiser here among others owned by both). Legalized weed to stay legal, I know a foreign concept...... :rolleyes:

Ky, largest state of illegal grow & distilling........ :tongue:

I like this, use the same green on the trim and your current red color on the red in the photos, I like the natural base main house color

I'd do this, or go all a deeper stain like photo 3.
Keep some hints of the red on some, green roof for aireal continuity, and if the spirits so move you green up the trim some.

You must excuse our "friend" from hippieville. Typical lefty, always projecting his misdeeds and bad habits onto the good people of this forum!

...oh, and paint the same, unless you like the Barnum & Bailey look. :)

How about glocks? Are you ok with those too? Apparently they are only ok after having an appreciation for 1911?s a prerequisite or something communist I?m sure.

Careful though, merely talking to me could get you lumped in with Charles & I. If I could vote I would agree with you....... :wink:

Shawn-

I like Glocks, have Colt Gold Cup since before Glock was anything other than a Chinaman saying clock though, so I guess that shows flexibility and a willingness to adapt to new things! 

Just sign-up again as -Shawn SquareD- and one of us will approve you and you can vote; you can then sit in your garage and collect dust and leak oil on the floor.....

I?ll just say this. Don you know this post is DOT BAIT.

Just let the wife make the decision.  That?s the way it will go anyway.

And guess what?

THis morning the subject came up

She said to paint it the same as the main shed to keep everything uniform.

No, she doesn't care for the looks, but she things now that it is established, keep it all the same theme!

Did I just win a small victory?

Anybody?
