Is now bright and cheery! Look!
I finally remembered to snap a picture for an after. After doing battle with the before-mentioned rabid wasp, I think my hard work paid off. The dormer is now painted "Skimming Stone" by Farrow & Ball, and the trim is "Impressionist" by Ralph Lauren.
Steven painted the underside and is putting up new boards for our new copper guttering!! Woot!!! Won't it be pretty? :)
p.s. i haven't started on the dormer on the other side. yikes!!!
