How to Choose Exterior House Paint Colors

Choosing exterior house paint colors can feel like an overwhelming task if a homeowner goes blindly into the project. Walk into any home improvement store and a customer will find a massive amount of color paints to choose from. The good news is that there are exterior professional painters that help with that and also here are a few color rules that can help eliminate some of the guesswork when needing to choose exterior house paint colors.

Are you ready to try something other than white paint for your exterior house color scheme? Here are a few tips to keep in mind during your next house painting project. Planning ahead is the key to make any home improvement project a success, especially when painting a house.

Do you want your house exterior to have a lively appearance? If that’s the case, then focus on choosing a warm color scheme. Would you rather have your house exterior look more subtle to the outside world? If so, then painting a house with a cool color scheme going to make it more likely to blend in with its surrounding environment.

Now that you’ve chosen between warm or dark colors for your painting project, it’s time to decide whether your exterior house will have a dark color scheme or a light color scheme. In general, the lighter your color scheme, the more eye-catching your house will appear (because light colors contrast with most natural environments). If you want your house exterior to closely match its outdoor environment, then painting a darker color scheme will likely be your best bet.

An accent color is another painting project to include when planning exterior house colors. When you’ve decided on the color of your house’s main areas, the accent color (to be used on the places such as around the windows and on the door) can help pull in the entire look. For instance, a lighter accent color against a darker main exterior house color helps a small house appear larger. And remember, just because this is an accent color does not mean it shouldn’t fit in with your overall color scheme. Choosing an accent color that adds pizazz, but still looks good with the main house color will prevent any unsightly clashing of colors.

Take the time to gather the right color scheme for your house exterior before getting up on that ladder and your painting project will go much more smoothly. Home improvement does not have to mean pulling a “Tim Allen” (with DIY blunders galore) any longer.

New Home Construction Falls; Dashes Hopes from April

The construction industry came falling down in the month of May. The May construction permits fell which shows this industry is not healthy along with many others. However on May 18th I wrote an article that new home growth was on the rise. We asked the question whether or not it was due to the Tax Credit, apparently it was.

Alan Zibel an Associated Press Real estate writer posted an article titled "Home Construction Sinks Building Permits Down." Family home construction reduced 17 percent which is as Zibel writes "…the largest drop since 1991." As Americans and as readers it is our job to think for ourselves about what this says.

As I wrote in the May 18th article, a friend of mine in the lumber company said his company took a very conservative position with the supposed building increase because they thought it was due to the tax credit.

I actually think that Barack Obama wants to do well. I have no time for Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi or much of the Democratic congress who I believe are out of touch with what is really going on. The bottom line is when Obama first came into office there was an incredible amount of credit that had to be given. That may have been true it was risky but I would not blame any president for doing what Obama did considering the state our country was in. Further, it was amazing the state of private industry how irresponsible they were in their actions.

However the government has gone on and continued to pass legislation which puts them in the position of having to pay for certain things such as continued unemployment. It is certainly not something that can be "something for nothing." There has to be a payer in any situation.

The reason there has not been much back lash so far is because of the consistent payments of unemployment. I have a friend who says he would not be doing as well as he is if it were not for unemployment. It is time that instead of having a one-party system that we start getting two views of the problems we have and start to really try and solve the problems instead of trying to legislate our way out.

Homebuilt Aircraft: Metal-Monocoque Construction

Home built aircraft can be built out of a variety of materials and the most common material is sheet metal. Sheet metal or metal-monocoque construction offers a lot of advantages for the construction or aircraft primarily that it is well suited to mass production. In the homebuilt market metal construction is the most common method of building an aircraft primarily because of the enormous popularity of the RV series of aircraft. Homebuilders also use metal because it is the most durable material available.

Metal is an excellent material for building aircraft, because it is so strong aircraft can be built out of thin sheets of metal keeping the weight quite low. It really is amazing how a flimsy sheet of metal can become incredibly strong just by changing its shape and inserting a few rivets. The metal of choice for most aircraft is aluminium, primarily because of its excellent strength to weight ratio.

Almost all certified airplanes are built using sheet metal, primarily because it is well suited to mass construction. Metal aircraft are also the most common homebuilt aircraft because they offer a number of advantages to the homebuilder. Probably the biggest advantage is the durability of metal aircraft, they have no restrictions on exposure to the elements like composite or wood airplanes do. They are also safer than composite airplanes in the event of a crash. They are also much easier to repair than wood or composite aircraft in the event of damage. Other advantages of metal is that it is relatively easy to work with, it is not temperature sensitive so your work shop doesn't need to be climate controlled, no harmful chemicals are used, and few people have allergies to metal.

The biggest disadvantage of metal airplanes is that they can't shaped into complex shapes like composites can be. This limit's the kinds of designs that can be built using metal construction. Another disadvantage of metal construction is that it can be quite tedious. There are a lot of rivets involved in building a metal airplane making the work very repetitive. There are also a lot of sharp edges when using metals, you will cut yourself.

Metal-moncoque construction has many advantages but like any material it also has its disadvantages. There is no such thing as the perfect material for building an aircraft, everything is a compromise. It is important that you do your research in order to ensure that you choose the best construction material for your homebuilt aircraft.

The first craft that kids can do with these four items are making cards. They can fold a piece of construction paper over to make a card shape. They can draw and color anything they wish on the inside and out. With construction paper you can also cut out shapes and glue them on the card. This is a great idea for Holidays, Birthdays and other special occasions.

A great craft idea for boys is to make paper airplanes. Most boys love making and flying them. They can use the crayons to make designs on their airplane masterpieces. They can also make airplanes of different sizes and colors.

Using construction paper they can design and make their own picture frames for pictures. They can cut out cute designs and glue them around the frame. They can frame regular pictures or even pictures they have drawn.

A cute craft using construction paper and glue is to make binoculars. Just have them roll up two pieces of construction paper and then glue them together on the side. Scissors may come in handy with this craft to shorten the binoculars. Another similar craft is to use just one piece of construction paper and make a telescope out of it. They can also color their binoculars and telescope with crayons and make designs on them.

A fun craft for both boys and girls is to make a butterfly using construction paper. The kids can draw a butterfly on the construction paper and then cut it out. They can color it however they wish. Construction paper butterflies are really pretty!

Construction paper flags are fun to make and very easy. Just using red, white and blue construction paper they can make their very own flag. They can hang it in their room or even on the refridgerator. This would be a great project for the 4th of July.

Most kids would love to be King or Queen of the day. Construction paper crowns are very fun and easy to make. They can shape them however they like. They can use crayons to draw jewels and designs on their crowns or even cut out shapes from other color construction paper to glue on.

Children’s handprints drawn on construction paper is a great way to create a keepsake. Just trace the child’s hand with a crayon or pen and then have them color it in. They can date it and write their name on the paper. This makes a great gift and keepsake for parents and grandparents.

For Holidays there is an endless supply of ideas using construction paper, scissors, glue and crayons. For Valentine’s Day they can make Valentine’s Day cards for parents and grandparents.

For Easter they can cut out an egg and decorate it using the crayons or other colored construction paper. Perhaps drawing a huge 4 leaf clover or pot of gold in March. Christmas crafts are a lot of fun too. Drawing and decorating a Christmas tree on construction paper is a lot of fun. They can also cut out and decorate presents using the construction paper. Wreaths and ornaments are another fun craft. I am sure you can think of several other fun crafts to make for the Holidays.

These are just a few ideas to get you started on a fun adventure using construction paper, scissors, glue and crayons. Have fun!
