2 and 3 are pretty standard. I like 1 as it is something different from the normal I see in houses.

I would prefer the dark gray, but either would be fine, really.

For the glass, I think I prefer the look of your wife's choice, but yours might actually obscure more. (These are for privacy when showering, yes?)
Thanks B. Kind of for privacy. It'd be for a window above a sink, next to the shower. But the only way anyone could see the shower was if s/he was on the neighbor's roof or on scaffolding between the houses. Our bath window looks out on our neighbors' wall, about 5 feet away, and none of their windows are in view of ours.

2 and 3 are pretty standard. I like 1 as it is something different from the normal I see in houses.
I agree with your daughter.
Yeah, I think the bottom two are the most common. Maybe we should go w/ 3. I'll see if it can be tempered.

Edit, I meant #1, not 3.

You had me at that velvet (moleskin?) jacket. And I hope I had you when I rubbed it.

If that's a roundabout way of proposing, then the answer is yes, yes ... a million times yes!

Ahh. For a window I would go with #2. I think it's most consistent with the style of your house.

What is the rationale for this setup? Is it to allow the hot tub and pool to share filtering and chemical equipment?


And it's pretty and sounds nice. The spillway is actually extraneous to the fact the spa and pool are one integrated system.

Would love you guys' thoughts on a paint scheme. This is the current one:
Which would you prefer, or do you have a fourth option? We're leaning toward #2.

M, putting aside the colour of my outlook while in SF, some of the nicest homes I saw were the ones painted in black or near black.

emptym, of the options you gave, I would choose the light gray. I also like lefty's suggestion, but that would depend on whether or not there's another blackout house on your block.

The all black Victorian seems to be the latest trend over on this side of town. It's usually paired with a bright tutti-fruit colored front door. That combo looked fresh when I first saw it a few yrs ago but now I'm getting a tech commuter bus vibe from it. I do like the monochrome look though. usually people go overboard with colors on those Victorians. Depending on what other houses are nearby, maybe you can choose a single color and do variations of tones of the same hue. I like how the minimal look downplays the gingerbready detailing on that era house. I've seen some nice all bright white paint jobs which look cool as well.

also Piobiare, I hope by "spillaway" you mean there's a swim-up wine bar in that pool.

In my defense, I did leave 4 years ago when it seemed rare.

Also trying to save M a few bucks. I have a friend who had his Victorian on Hayes painted a few years ago in about 6 colours and I believe the bill was 30K.

Oh, I like the look still it's just become a "thing" now. I love the idea of saving $$ and looking good. :)
