I'm participating in Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. Thanks to Susan!

Well, they've put up most of the stone. Here is the look before the grout. The architect/builder, Bob DeFiore from Portico, told me they we going to use buff colored grout to lighten it up.

They added the grout. Here it is before it dried. Not very light.

Then it dried.

The next colossal change will be paint. Bob said the paint will be in tones that match the buff of the stone. The window muntons will be the bronze color you see in the pictures. the window and door trim and the panel - I don't know yet.

Stay tuned to Metamorphosis Monday.

Thanks,
Terry

  2. The stone is great, but it's the combination of the shingle siding and the stone that's really yummy. I love this type of two and a half story house. It's really lovely.

  4. Very handsome, isn't it. What does it look like on the side where the siding and stone meet?
