Weathered Shingle or Bunglehouse Grey? Wait. What's a Bunglehouse?

So, it's a quiet Saturday night. We're surrounded by boxes, disarray, and poor lighting (lamps are packed). As always happens at times when we don't have much else to do, we started to talk about the House. I'm going to start referring to the house as "House" because she/it is truly becoming a member of our family. House certainly costs as much as a child would. Probably more, given a child doesn't require a licensed electrician. 

We're debating over several color schemes. Initially, we had sort of settled on a beige color, with dark blue trim and a red door. The red door is non-debatable--it's very feng-shui and I sure like the way it looks. But House is just monstrous, and that would be quite a bit of beige, and I don't want it to become the equivalent of khaki pants in our vibrant neighborhood. We've landed on a couple alternate schemes. I'd love your input!

"Weathered Shingle" - we would use the green as the trim color, with a brighter red/brick color for the door. This seems 
VERY brown to me, but we did a little computer-aided design and it looks quite nice. 
 


"Bunglehouse Grey" - we did the same modeling with this grey scheme, and the grey is too dark. Lightened up just a couple shades, though, it looks fantastic. This would also very nicely complement the limestone steps leading up to the front porch. I also think these two trim/accent colors are pretty much perfect. 


Speaking of the front porch... The house, of course, is 108 years old, and we think the porch was originally built on sand. Obviously, it's shifting a bit. We simply can't just destroy the porch and start again (though this is what Eric wants to do, of course...). We also have no wiggle room to just put a layer of concrete on top of the existing slab, because we have like a half inch between the porch floor and the doorframe. Ultimately, once we settle on a solution, which I'm thinking will likely involve some sort of middle ground between my idea to just cover up all the imperfections, and Eric's idea to rebuild the whole porch, we'll see about staining the concrete. Regardless of what main color we choose, I think we'll go with a nice stain that blends grey, green, and brown together.

I'm the kind of hombre who loves to seek revolutionary stuff. Presently I'm fabricating my own pv panels. I am managing it all by myself without the help of my men. I am utilizing the internet as the only path to acheive that. I stumbled upon a very amazing website which explains how to create pv panels and so on. The place explains all the steps needed for solar panel construction.

I am not really sure bout how correct the data given there is. If some experts over here who had xp with these works can have a see and give your feedback in the thread it will be grand and I would extremely treasure it, cause I truly would love to try [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com]solar panel construction[/URL].

Tnx for reading this. You people are great.
