I believe there is an Iowan tradition around where I used to live to paint big smiley faces on outbuildings. I've considered that. Beautiful.Pink and purple sounds pretty, those colors compliment each other. I vote for purple and bright orange, with an occasional lime green tossed in the mix. AND paint the Bible verse “Love your neighbor as you love yourself “ on it. Would big red hearts be overkill?
Anywhere else but here maybe. I suspect Heating/Ac guys are going to be like other contractors around here. There's a shortage of skilled labor. We'll need to find one with a good reputation that doesn't tend to screw people over too often and if we can get a hold of them get on their list and wait. No deals and they can name their prices. But I would like to be wrong so let's find out. Not looking forward to the electric bill associated with air conditioners. Our first full month here was completed. The e bill, no AC, was $287. That's around what it cost to power and AC our last house (and this house is modest rather than whatever the last one was). Yuck. I'm not impressed. Unitil is lame. Sweetening the idea of solar with every bill. Or getting out of Mass.Mini splits are awesome! Maybe see if there are any 4th of July sales/deals to decrease the price?
