Distance Projects include:
• Our phone intake interview, when I get to know all about your project, preferences, and goals
• The images you send are adjusted and I print high quality color enlargements, which I study in my studio to select your best color options
• I give you 3 options for the body color, using a national paint brand easily available to you.
• You view these selections at you local paint store. I advise buying small size samples of the paints and applying them to large pieces of white board, or directly on your building, then tell me which one you like the best
• To complement the body color of your choice I select trim colors for the main features on your house, and accent colors for shutters, porches, and other areas
• You receive the final color specifications, describing exactly where the colors will be placed on your home,
• And if required, a color placement map showing the color numbers marked on an enlarged elevation photo of the building
Every project includes Email and phone conversations to answer any and all of your project-related questions. 503 287 4354 and firstname.lastname@example.org
