done some googling but does anyone have a nice app for me to see what different paint colors would look like on the exterior of my house?
its all brick but has stucco on two small spots and it's currently gray and I don't like it

I've used this for interior but I imagine it would work for exterior as well.

Sunday morning routine of coffee, breakfast, and goEMAW interrupted when the wife informs me the waffle maker "fell apart " after one waffle.  Seems that years of heat the plastic around machine screws they were imbedded in gave way.  Quick run to Ace, two drill holes, and 30 mins later back in business.

Currently in the process of two major "jobs":

 1. Building an Olds 455 engine bored 60 over and rebuilding/beefing up a th400 transmission for my 1964 Chevy C10. The engine should put out 425+ HP and 500+ lbft of torque.  :driving: I have already added bags all around, replaced rockers, and painted it myself.

2. Adding rooms to our attic (approx. 500 sq. ft).  I had a contractor build the stairs as I did not want to screw those up. Father-in-law (30 years in HVAC) installed new HVAC. I am doing everything else.  Currently finishing up drywall. Drywall is awful and takes forever with only one person. It doesn't help having so many odd angles in attic. My daughter's 9th b-day is Feb. 5th and my wife says the upstairs must be finished by her party.  crap.

Thanks!  Having a 60-66 Chevy C10 has been a dream of mine since 8th grade.  I saw a kid in our HS drive one to my sister's prom and fell in love.

I hope to pass this on to my son; he's only 6. My daughter already told me she doesn't want it.  :)

I installed a wine fridge which included plugging it into the wall and sliding it into the spot under the counter

Digging that C10.  Just got started swapping the motor in my daughter's 95 Camry after she blew the motor.
