I know it's JUST a cabin! BUT..........

 The cabinets have been installed.
They look darker in the picture
than they really are.
They have some grain sowing
through.
The granite is a really light 
ivory with lots of gray and and a little
black.  IF I remember right.

 Jeremy has been working on the inside
tongue and grove.
It is a blue pine.
Lots of gray.
The walls that are drywall
have been painted like a 
cement color.
Lori Worthington
at Tasteful Trends
has been helping Tara with 
Decisions.
She has done such a great job!
The drystack ledgestone is really
gray also.


Everything is SO beautiful!
EXCEPT........
 Can you see the color?
It could not have been darker
if it had been tar applied.
I actually think Paint would have
been less thick and dark.

In my 27 yrs of marriage to Kendall,
I don't think I have ever seen him
so distraut over something!
It was his baby!
He wanted everything so perfect.
The craftmanship was so amazing....
then this happened.
He says: "There could not have
been a worst screwup!"
It is just really unfixable, when the
wood is ruined!
Of course everyone is trying to
blame everyone else.
The painter actually called the paint store
when he started and said: "is this right, it is
totally black".
Why then did they not THINK!
He could have asked:
How black like see through or solid?
NO SOLID BLACK!
But the paint guy said:
No that is what she ordered.
Tara's sample that she has is a
medium brown stain.
Really pretty.
I do see a little black in it which cuts
the orangy color, but it is pretty.
Then the painter stopped again and
called his boss.
No....he says keep going.
Then the painter finally just stopped.
Knowing it HAD to be wrong.
I wish he had done just the garage side,
 that would not have mattered so much, 
you can't really see it from the front.
But he did 1/2 the front and all the garage.
Pretty much 1/2 the exterior.

The outside was done by
Craig White and
Richard Jolley.
And a few others.
It was such a beautiful job.

They can tear it all off and start over.

BUT WINTER IS HERE!
AND $$$$$$$$$$$$
Kendall just feels like the cabin is ruined!
It will be ok, but it is very upsetting.
He and everyone has worked so hard!

 The south side of the garage
where the sun baked that black
stain right on!
 AND winter is upon us!
This is the front side going into the garage 
area where you can sit and take off
wet or dusty clothes.
The area that when someone realized this
WAS a terrible mistake and they wiped
the stain that had been sprayed on back off.
It is really not bad there.
Really dark, but at least you can see
a little wood under it.
 Tara gripping her original sample.
LOTS of tears!
To be 8 months prego and having to 
deal with this!
 Kendall talking with the man that
came up to power wash the siding.
Is it looking better?  Or worse?
They are thinking....
that if they spray it all off,
then sand to get the rest mostly off
then they can start over?????
 Tara and Kendall Contemplating
the mess!
 AND winter is upon us!

We are all just SICK SICK SICK!
So many if's and why's!
On a good note......
I borrowed my Dad's Camera in Parowan
to take pictures of the DISASTER.
He loves photography and these pics
were on his card.
I am not sure what kind of birds they are.
I will have to ask him.
Beautiful!

Just found your blog ~ I can't even begin to imagine how everyone feels!! We had a similar incident when staining our fence. The beautiful brown we imagined was straight black. Luckily we were able to fix it before too much was done. I was in tears over that ~ I would probably be in total shock if it were my whole cabin!! If it's any consolation, it looks beautiful in the photos. Surely there's someone out there who can do a little magic and fix it without too much damage or money??
