{Our Home with Aluminum Interlock Roofing and Benjamin Moore Golden Mist Exterior}

Now, here comes the final REVEAL! Our completed home with the Aluminum +Interlock Roofing and the Benjamin Moore Golden Mist Exterior... We have waited long enough, for having better weather to take photos, but that never happened. Only now our balcony has been completed as well. As I write this, not yet painted by the very same professional painters that did our entire exterior of the home and the gazebo. When that is done, you will get more photos from the back of our home with the balcony as well.
Photo has been taken on June 24, you see how gray the sky looks; pregnant with rain...
LOTS of rain we have had.
We got so lucky for having the roof installed in 4 days with perfect weather and also for the painters we had 3 weeks of perfect weather.
Needless to say that our lawn is GREEN... but soggy!
The Benjamin Moore Golden Mist color works perfect with the Aluminum Slate Roofing in Aged Copper color. The shutters are in a Chrome Green and the windows and all the Vintage Woodworks gingerbread wood trim, balusters and posts are in white.
What do you say?
The indoor shutters are not fully open... 
The white hibiscus are blooming in front of our home.
Now let's walk around the corner towards the bay window area.
This photo I made on August 6, the same gray sky and very pregnant with rain.
Our Spicy girl followed me, as they all usually do - like a doggy.
This is back to June 24, with the white petunias just having been planted inside our Fiberglass Window Boxes.
There was so much to do after the painters did pressure wash the house.
Next they caulk it and painted it with two layers of Benjamin Moore paint in Golden Mist.
We had to take all the Window Boxes off the walls, as it had to be bare.
Than putting them back on, filling them with potting soil and finding plants in summer time...
A little bit closer for the picture.
Our prostrate gardenias are blooming too.
Now you can see the gazebo coming in view as well.
All our trees are so lush this summer with that much rain.
More view of he gazebo.
Below the large dogwood tree, no grass is growing in the shade...
Now it is pure mud!
One last view of the Benjamin Moore Golden Mist with Chrome Green for the shutters.
You can see here that the balusters are still not on the balcony. 
I will show that later with the complete back side and in another post also you get to see our gazebo.

All those planter boxes had to come off the walls, and back on...

Our youngest cat-man 'Smokey' walks here on the driveway.
I found him up in the magnolia tree next to the driveway to the left (not visible here).
Somebody must have put him out there. A poor kitten; literally skin over bone.
He was trying to steal some morsels from our cats but there was not much left...
Smokey is part Persian and we got him back to good health. He was so sick at first.
Cowards that put him out like that and they had even tried to kill him as he was so tender on his back and also his tail. He barely could 'talk' and his throat was very sensitive to touching.
God knows what this poor soul went through before I did hear him, thinking there was a hawk rustling those magnolia leaves...

That was so far the update on our home and on Smokey!

  3. Dearest Mariette, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! The Golden Mist is perfect and I love the white gingerbread trim. The green shutters certainly are the icing on the cake or maybe the gingerbread.

  10. Thank you for your nice comment, yes the unpacking and laundry is always a returning point when home from holiday. Your house had a complete makeover, it looks beautiful and I like the colour of the outside very much and the roof is also very nice. Must hsve been a lot of work, but it is worth it every bit.

    Here I am, finally catching up with your lovely blog, after many happy hours spent outside in the beauty of the mountains! :) Thank you so much for your sweetest comment and all your sweet words!
    Your house is a real jewel, I love everything about it and I'm in love with your bay wondow!
    Your kitties are so lucky to have found you, and Smokey is such a lucky boy! You have saved his life and given him a home, shelter, family and, most important of all, LOVE!!! Poor boy... what a shame that people still don't care about such beautiful souls, and I will never ever understand how some "people" can be cruel to such wonderful, adorable creatures who just want to be loved! God bless your heart, my dear Mariette!
    Have a wonderful week, and hugs to you and all your furry babies!

      Thank you so much for coming from your beautiful mountains to my humble blog. Oh, you won't believe how much of a gamble it was for picking the 'right' colors as it came all on my, Pieter being color blind. But we both love the way it turned out once this Golden Mist got put on. It also does make all our gingerbread wood trim stand out so much better; as you noticed from that bay window area. We are anew in love with our own home! The kitties were nervous for many weeks as they were hiding when people worked on the roof and later around the house on ladders. Now they're fine, things returned back to normal again.
      Oh, we enjoy our kitties very much and they give back with unconditional love.
      Hugs to you from a sunny (several days already without rain!) Georgia,

  22. Good Morning Mariette, Oh my, your house looks beautiful, I adore it. The colour is so lovely. You must feel such a sense of pride when you turn onto your drive and see your home, I know I would.
    The detailing around the roof is highlighted beautifully and it gives a delicate look to the house.
    When I saw the front of your house, I thought it was what we call a bungalow, which is a house all on one level, and then when you showed us the side of the house where your garage is situated, it has a much greater depth and looks like a traditional house with rooms upstairs.
    Enjoy your beautiful home.

    Da seid Ihr sicher froh, daß es jetzt fertig ist!
    In irgendeinem Blog las ich von Euren sintflutartigen Regenfällen derzeit. Das muß ja schlimm sein. Bei uns hatte es ja vor längerer Zeit solchen Regen und einige Regionen litten schwer daran.

      Oh wir sind so froh daẞ wir so weit alles geschafft haben.
      Ja den ganzen Sommer hat es täglich so tropische Gewitter gegeben. Die arme Bauern werden ihre Ernte wohl nicht vom Land bekommen; soviel Wasser überall. Die ganze Erde ist so satt vom Regen, da wird einfach nichts mehr aufgenommen. Da warnt man dagegen das es die Häuser eindringen kann.
      Heute hat es zwar geregnet aber nicht so viel. Läẞt uns hoffen es wird bald normal und daẞ wir noch etwas vom Sommer mitbekommen!
