    Thanks for doing that, Janae.... The house has an aluminum soffit and fascia installed so I never did get a Ben Moore equivalent for that color. Glad to hear that yours turned out well!

    Just an FYI, and I asked my local BM paint store to do Elephant Tusk with their Exterior Stain and they received an error from the paint system when they attempted a sample for me. They do NOT recommend Elephant Tusk in exterior colors as it will yellow and turn green over time and loose its color. They can override this if you would like.

    For whatever it's worth we just had a roof put on last week and were very very happy with the choice. The roof looks much like this photo and was GAF mission brown. We were leaning toward weather wood but decided on mission brown and couldn't be happier.

    What is underneath the cement board shake siding? Is that easy to apply over a brick home? Or would you just paint the brick instead?

  • bratcat

    For anyone considering these colors, the color on the Fascia, Benjamin Moore Chocolate Brown CSP-270 is not available for exterior use. Their rep has suggested Middlebury Brown HC-68 or Sierra Spruce 2108-20 as alternatives. I’m currently painting my home the same color and will say that Copley Gray is a bit darker than what appears in this photo. Thanks for posting, the renovation on the home is beautiful!

Why so much concrete?

- Just had our "used cinnamon brick" house trim, etc., painted. Loved running across this thread since I selected BM Cromwell Gray HC-103 for fascia, soffits, window sashes, garage door(S) trim, and gutters. Copley Gray HC-104 was used on all architectural roofline features that extend beyond body of house: rear two story porch soffit, garage doors, bay and square window fascia, and gutters. Front door porch entry surround was painted Copley Gray with Bavarian Cream BM 2146-70 (-50% darker) glass trim around high gloss black front door. Rockport Gray HC-105 was used on rear two story porch columns. Bavarian Cream BM 2146-70 (50% darkened) small wood trim detail on columns. Bavarian Cream BM 2146-70 used on all window trim.Cromwell Gray was used on all window sashes. BM Black 2132-10 (high gloss) on front door, wood shutters (4 pair). Adding a black planter window box on 2nd floor window above three garage windows with shutters. Brass door kick plate, knocker, and hardware. Switching porch light fixtures to a bronze wall lantern style that will blend well with our "Saltbox Design (single sloping roof)" mixed with three various sized front gables. Grays and greens are considered neutral colors for outdoors. I do think my roof matches the Cromwell Gray more than I like. Our side and front driveways are aggregate style concrete. I prefer this look over plain concrete. The driveway featured with this home would have been less eye-catching if brick were added to frame the driveway or walkway or both! Enjoyed reading this thread!

    Ron, what an awesome house and what an excellent idea about the donation. I build in Georgia and with your permission I think I'll make the same request when able. It looks as though the fascia is a darker green/gray color that the house and of course not the off white OC-8 tusk color. Can you please tell us that color too? Thanks in advance.

    Tough to say. The roof color of "barkwood" works really well with the chocolate brown, aluminum soffit and fascia. I think that it would dramatically change the look to go with a light gray roofing. Would not be my first choice of a roofing color. (just my opinion for what that is worth). Best wishes with your project!

        1. Will this fit in my new place? When I am working with clients who are getting ready to move, I ask them to show me around their entire home. While we walk, I take detailed notes about the things right off the bat that aren’t going to be moved into the new home. I recommend grabbing a pen and paper and doing the same. Start with the master bedroom, then the kids’ rooms or extra bedrooms, and then the kitchen, family room, office, basement and so on. It is easier to start with furniture — as the new home tends to dictate which large pieces will come and which will be sold or donated.

        stevenrandel
        Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Where Did Your House Get Its Look?May 8, 2013

        2. Shingle. With some reference to classical detailing, the shingle style began to appear under the Victorian umbrella of design in the late 19th century. It ironically stems from medieval architecture — that is, the period of building between the end of ancient classical and the beginning of Renaissance classical. Original shingle was a style before its time; shingle designs emphasized a more open floor plan, a feature so popular today. On this house there are also elements of stick style (note the gable over the entrance porch) and Tudor (note the steep roof formations and varying window shapes). Shingle style is currently very popular in the southeastern United States but can be found in all areas of the country.

        cninteriors
        Charmean Neithart Interiors added this to 8 Homes With Exterior Paint Colors Done RightApr 13, 2013

        Here is a basic cottage-style home with a combination of shingles and vertical siding. The main field color is Copley Gray HC-104 by Benjamin Moore. The trim is Elephant Tusk OC-8, also by Benjamin Moore. Note the garage door is also painted the main field color.

        Becky Harris added this to Houzz Call: Show Us Your Paint MakeoversMar 13, 2013

        One of the most dramatic before and afters often happens on the exterior of a home. I'm stuck trying to commit to a palette at the moment myself. When you get the exterior palette right, it makes your house completely shiny and new to you.
