This project was completed in 1999, which I no longer have reference to the color selections. If you view the exterior clapboards, with their exposure to the sun or in shade, you will see variations of color within this photograph.

The final finish color is based on the product you are painting, the type of paint (solid body or stain), and the preparation of the current surface, and the number of coats of paint you will apply on your home.

My best suggestion is to select and print the best photo of this project presented on my houzz site. Then bring the photograph to a local / retailer, who should be able to help you find a color you may be satisfied with on your project. The selection of the color for your project will vary due to location, along with the natural light.

I would then have your painter prepare a sample board with the recommended color on a small mock-up of your exterior siding. The 48"X48" board of the sample color, will be allow you to move it around different areas of the exterior your home, at different times of the day. It will save time and money in the long run if you take the time to evaluate the color you select and use on the sample board, before you paint your entire project.

I am very appreciative of the information you provided me. We have an 80s colonial in Shelburne, Vermont, so it is exposed to a harsh winter as well as being on a shady lot. Your suggestion regarding the sample board and the concept of moving it around the house during various times of day is very helpful. Thank you very much, AMMJK
