The Husband and his father were deep in discussion this evening over apple crisp and coffee. The scratch paper was out and pencils were a-flyin' as they worked out the details of our roof. As you know -- or not--- the roof sheathing is on the log house, but there's no roofing materials on top of that yet. Poor, naked roof. We've been debating whether to do a metal roof or shingles. Shingles have carried the day, but now we've come to the issue of color. It had not occurred to me that I would have to choose a roof color. In fact, I don't know that I'd ever even noticed the panoply of shingle colors available. Holy smokes! Drive around your neck of the woods and take a gander at your neighbors' roofs. Unless you live in a trailer park or McMansion development, chances are you're living near an architectural rainbow. Who knew?
So we've come to this: what color shingles? Black? Gray? Mixed Brown? Green? Blue? (Blue?!) The list goes on, but I will not. Help! What say you, blogosphere?
I was too full of hearty homemade beef barley soup, oatmeal muffins and Mother's Day good cheer to cough up an opinion tonight, but perhaps with your generous insight I might just give The Husband my answer before he gets impatient and picks at random.
