Exterior Paint Palette & Temporary Power Update

After briefly considering going to a gray toned paint scheme for the exterior, I have decided to stick with a color scheme that is more representative of what I have been showing in the renderings. The actual selections are a slightly darker and less brownish than the computer image, with the windows, railings, porch trim, garage doors and gutters, soffits, downspouts and fascias going black instead of brown/bronze.
