A Green House!

(To Yellow Submarine)

We now live in a greenie houserine,
Greenie houserine, greenie houserine.
We now live in a greenie houserine,
Greenie houserine, greenie houserine.

And our friends all came ta say,
This'll be over soon some sunny day,
And invited us, "come to play".
Duh, duh, duh dut, da da da dut, 
Duh, duh, duh dut, da da da dut, 

We now live in a greenie houserine,
Greenie houserine, greenie houserine.
We now live in a greenie houserine,
Greenie houserine, greenie houserine.

And our friends are all around,
Friendly 'trooder cat lives next door,
And we all got out, today to play.
Duh, duh, duh dut, da da da dut, 
Duh, duh, duh dut, da da da dut,


Well, we are sure glad its all over, (the hammerin noises were terrible, especially right on the walls of the bedroom) and we have to say the outside of the house looks great.  Of course, TBT says our color sense is a bit limited.  We mean, there is really only yellow, green, bloo, black, grey and white, right?  (Are white and gray actually colors annyway?)  TBT keeps claiming there are other colors (red, orange, purple, that we see as gray but we have our doubts.  We thinks he makes stuff up sometimes, ya know?  Like he says the leafs on the trees change colors to "red".  Well, sure, some get "pale" and some get yellow, but this "red" claim is a bit weerd....

The new outside is a pale green and the roof is sorta "earthy".  There are woody rectangles on the sides of the windows that are a darker green.  TBT says he will paint the doors an window frames to match it. 

So, here are some pictures annyways.  You can all decide about it.

It looked like THIS.
TBT says the old 26 year old siding was so "abraded" that mildew couldnt be blasted off fer more than a couple big moons, and he gave up doing that.. 

The siding is "cypress".  Its a little greener than it looks in the pictures.  I think the grass confused the camera a bit.

It sure looks CLEAN!
And differnt !
TBT says he may repaint the front an garage doors to match the shutters, or white.  What do YOU think?  You cant tell, but both the doors are really badly painted. 

TBT will put up some posts about the whole process, but we dont really care about that very much.  We are now in the GREEN house, and that's cool.  It STILL makes our house uniquey in the neighborhood (almost all beige) and we like THAT!

The worker Beins did pretty good about not hurting our flowers/plants while changin the house.  There was a little damage, but considering how many times they hadda walk all through that stuff, he is happy.
A few broken leaves, but nothing he says won't grow back.  He was expectin a LOT worse.

So it went better than he expected.  There will be more on his own bloggie soon, but we beat him to it.  MOL!
And please all, keep up the purrs for Squashies...

Oohhh.... hammering. Hammering is the worst, I think. That, and well-drilling. So glad your ears all survived all the noise and the plants survived the feet. House looks great! purrs

Looks grrrrrrreat! Glad you all can get back to you regular schedule!

Shaggy and Scout said...

The house looks fabulous...and we agree with you guys on the colors. What is this 'red' they speak of?
*shakes head* Dunno. People live in a fantasy world half the time.
We think painting the garage & front door to match the shutters will really make it spiffy!

Rykers Boyz n Allie said...

Whew! We just bet you're glad all that hammering is done! YAY!! And we love that color of greenie!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Wow, big change! Looks great, and yay for the plants surviving it all!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

You guys should have a nip party to celebrate the workers being gone! Your house looks really nice, but it's too bad they could not have done it more quietly.

Eric and Flynn said...

The house looks great. We think paint the doors the same colour as the shutters.
Mum says thanks a lot! She can't stop singing We all live in a green houserine in her head.

Brian said...

Nice, nice, nice! Done!

The Island Cats said...

It looks like it was worth all the noise!!

The mom says you may want to consider painting the door and garage door a different color...something that coordinates with the green siding and shutters. Just a thought!
