First of all, we got our side samples, brick, as well as roof. This is what we are thinking we'll go with, althoug it's really not easy to see (my phone camera is not the best). The windows are going to be white trim. I'm not sure about the roof, I'm worried it will be too dark. So now when I'm driving around I'm staring at people's roofs... it's odd.
So, when I came upon the "house" today, Jim and 3 guys were working. First I went to check out the back yard... here's the view from my canal to the street. It's a pile of pushed junk. They can't get back there to do anything else on it until they get the egress basement window in (which they were doing when I was there).
This is the window waiting for it's frame:
