Can't believe this is the 15th house!! They're so crisp and clean. Can't wait to see more.

All of them are wonderful. Like Brian said - they are so crisp and clean with great lines.

This color is spectacular along with an incredible design. How did you ever paint that chimney without getting green all on the pristine roof? That is another amazing detail.

Lucy...
the Reader's Digest condensed version answer would be "very carefully with a small brush"... :lol: ...you're right...painting different colors close together is a challenge...
note: what you don't see in the photos of finished houses and flatties is all the "touch up painting" i have to do... :oops:
