Refining the Exterior Color Scheme

Unlike the Starter Home 2.0 project that utilized the Colorplus Hardie Board Siding that came pre-colored in the the 'Monterey Taupe' finish, the Hardie Board Siding on Oakley Home 2.0 project will be factory primed and field painted to allow for a more customized color palette. After initially conceptualizing and rendering the project with a bronze/brown color scheme, a closer look at the window, railing, and decking finishes combined with a trip to Sherwin Williams paint store made me realize that a gray/black exterior color scheme is more desirable for this house. Below is a mark-up of various samples and paint chips that are currently being proposed, though the decking is likely to change to a darker tone.
