Yellow House, Blue House, Foreclosed House, New House

Thursday, June 12, 2008

The house painters have come and gone, and now we have a yellow house. I love my new yellow house, and you'll notice that we managed to sneak in the rust as an accent color. Take that, busy-body asshat HOA Nazis! And the yellow looks much brighter now that it's actually applied! Bwahahaha!

We thought about taking the basketball hoop down as part of the painting job, as the Smart Boy doesn't use it much anymore. However, the neighbor kids, boys aged 4 and 7, have our permission to use it when the garage door is closed (i.e., all the time), and they're usually out there every day. I decided it would pretty mean to take it down, so we'll live with it until the next time we need to paint - probably about 5-8 years.

It looks like we'll have to do some more saving before we can get the linoleum replaced with the tile as we'd planned, as we try to pay cash for those types of improvements. So instead we've done some minor redecorating, such as new linens, area rugs, shower curtains, window treatments, etc. It helps to change the look of the room without spending a fortune.

We think the house North of ours (the blue one) has been foreclosed. The previous owners were renting it to a variety of unsavory characters, as the man had been laid off, and they couldn't make the payments. Now the power and water have been turned off, no one has lived there for a number of months, and people keep showing up and taking pictures. Yesterday a grounds crew came out and did some minor yard work, basically making it look like someone was at least trying to maintain the place, rather than the "abandoned" look it was starting to exhibit.

I hope the next owners fall into the category of "good neighbors." For us, that means they're quiet, and do the bare minimum of maintenance so our own property value doesn't suffer. We're really not very picky. Unlike the HOA.

Love the color (as you know, I'm partial to yellow as a house color). Bravo!

Janiece said...

Thanks! I preferred the orange, but yellow is bright and cheery, which makes me happy.

Since I spend so much time here, it's important to me that my surrounds make me cheerful rather than crabby.

Cindi in CO said...

Yay! Love the yellow, it's so cheery! I think I actually prefer the rust with the yellow as opposed to the orange.

Woot!

Jeri said...

I like the yellow! I want to retire to a little yellow bungalow with white trim and honeysuckle on an arbor. With NO STAIRS. LOL

My current house is sage green with white trim, which is soothing too, I can live with that. And I still do have that honeysuckle. ;)

Janiece said...

Jeri, the climbing plant to the right of the door is Japanese Honeysuckle. The sweetest smell in the world!

Nathan said...

Looks nice. Hope the HOA Nazis don't come after you for unauthorized trim.

Janiece said...

Oh, they won't. I have the approval in writing for the rust as an accent color!

Loving the rust trim with the yellow. As has been said before, very cheery.

Take THAT, HOA!
