Schmidt Painting

The only time that the side of the trim facing the siding here is painted white is on the first paint job and it's done before the siding is put on. After that it's the same color as the siding. Plus we use a lot of cedar shingles here that tend to curl so it would be next to impossible to cut the edge of the trim the same color as the trim as you don't caulk shingles because they move too much and caulking will not hold.

"The only time" - that is a broad brush to use. My trim is one color. I think it looks better. Different places different ways of doing things - it is what travel is all about.
