There are houses in this area that have siding that looks like this. I had left over fish scale shingles from other projects so they became the siding. Rectangle shingles are on the roof. The color is a nutmeg brown, the trim is antique white and the porch is thicket green. The roof started out to be just copper but was too red so I used walnut gel stain to tone it down.
During the build, I would listen to the Harry Potter movies until I almost know all the dialogue and worried Wendy for opinions. She deserves a special thanks for all her help.
