Per Guidelines, 3.17
-The color of exterior elements, including roofs, walls, trims and landscape structures, is to be subdued, recessive and complementary of the colors found in the surrounding landscape.
-To reveal and enhance natural wood grain in building finish materials.
-To tie windows into the color scheme of the home to create a smoothly integrated composition.
-To use metal details, railings, light fixtures to smoothly compliment the Northwest style of homes.
-Building elements are to generally fall within the following color ranges:-Roofs are to be black, brown, gray and/or green in hue.-Walls are to be stained in brown, gray and/or green hues. Black and blue hues are not allowed.-Trim, doors, window cladding, and accent colors are to be of the same tones, to compliment the wood and stone finishes. Accent colors may be approved by the DRC but must be limited to brown, gray, green, or red in hue and subtle in appearance. Black and blue hues are not allowed.
– Screening fences are to be stained to match the house and blend in with surrounding forest.
– Semitransparent or semisolid stains are to be used to protect wood from weathering, to give it a more refined texture or to achieve a darker hue. Wood grain must be visible through the protective finish. Clear finishes and stains may be appropriate on log and natural wood materials, but in general, pigment must be added to prevent a ‘raw’ or unfinished appearance and to help the home blend into the setting.
-All exterior trim paints and stains are to have a flat, non-glossy finish.
