I'd love that, but I think you are too far-we're in Evanston, about an hour away. You do beautiful work, I looked at your site. Thanks for your help!!!

They are there for sturctural purpose. Usually your building codes dictate how far apart they have to be. Looks good to me.

I love the house colors. I'm painting my house this spring, perhaps these exact colors. - I really want a robin's egg blue front door. Do you think that would look good with these house colors? What color blue would you recommend for the front door with these colors? I really love a classic white house and black shutters, but I think a gray will wear better...

I am painting my home Benjamin Moore Hawthorne yellow, sherwin william - I am painting my home Benjamin Moore Hawthorne yellow, sherwin williams is mixing the color for me and a black foundation Sherwin-Williams. Also will have black shutters on white trimmed windows. I really want a red door, can you suggest a red color to go with the yellow and we are painting the steps from the door. Would love a suggestion for a color for steps also. Thank you.

Beautiful transformation--how well does painted brick wear? - I plan to paint my brick house this year. In your experience, how often will it require repainting? Also, could you share a very brief overview of the steps needed to get the best paint job possible, so I will know what to look for when talking to contractors? Thank you very much for your time.
