    Hey guys. Sorry I've been absent but I'm preoccupied with...yes...MY NEW HOUSE!!! :boogie:After a month of negotiation and headaches with financing, I'm now a homeowner. And I think I got a good deal. It's a cozy little number that I plan on restoring over the next few years. Here's some pics. Any suggestions on a paint color? :lol:

    Sorry the pics are crappy; they're just snaps to email home to family.

    I actually like the color, except maybe a touch darker. But I can totally understand wanting to change it up. Its YOUR house!

    I like contrast. If you live in a climate with lots of sun, go with cool colors. In an area with lots of overcast, warm colors. You'll stick out, but curb appeal isn't just for selling a house, its also to make your neighbors jealous! :)

    Since I don't really know what part of Oregon you live in, and I don't know your personality well its hard for me to tell what you should paint it. But a rich earthy tone sounds nice to me. Then again, I'm a tree-hugger :) so anything that resembles nature's color spectrum is pleasant to my eyes.

    CONGRATULATIONS, BTW! I hope you went with a 15-year loan and not a 30... :)

    Hey, congratulations :)

    It is so much easier to buy a house in the US than in Europe, believe me ;)

    I myself will be looking for a new place to live, probably later in 2009 ...
    will be tough finding something.

    ...But more importantly, which photo's will you have on the wall?

    Seriously though, freaking sweet! I love the bench seat with the windows, thats character. Put a comfy cushion on that sucker and it would be a great place to read a book.

    Congrats! Looks like a fantastic project, I hope you enjoy it (and post photos of the "v.1.99"). I'd go for a slightly darker shade of blue, more mid-blue than light.

    Hope you're happy! I would be :mrgreen:

    I've got a color suggestion! You should go with a velvetty RED! While you're at it, paint the roof read, too! And the trim!

    With the red velvet wallpaper and red shag carpeting, I think I should rent it out by the hour!
