West Seattle housing: Help pick paint for ‘The Triplets’

How often do you get a say in what color somebody else’s (future) home is painted? Four months have passed since we reported on “The Triplets,” three old homes in Westwood getting major makeovers – instead of being torn down – as part of a program carried out in conjunction with the Washington State Housing Finance Commission. They renovation work is almost done – and now, you have a chance to participate in the final phase of the makeover: Voting on what color palette will be used for their paint. It’s a tradition with Green Canopy Homes, which has been working on the project. Voting is open till 2 pm tomorrow (Friday); you can go here to have a say. The homes are expected to go on the market in June.

    I’d never heard of Green Canopy, but it’s a fantastic idea. I love what they’re doing. I voted, though I wasn’t too impressed with any of the options on the palette ballot. C’mon, Green Canopy, how about some nice greens and blues – and not the pea-soup green up for voting.

    Community color vote is a great idea, but none of the choices are the least bt appealing. The first option has one house so dark it’s practically black. The other choices are 3 brown houses, or 2 grey houses and a green house.

    Agree, Lura! Maybe Green Canopy got those paints cheap, but, still…! If they’re putting so much effort into fixing up these houses, it’s worthwhile to paint them pleasing colors.

    Ive gotta say gray, I love the charcoal houses. I love that they are remodeling them instead of destroying them.

Sorry, comment time is over.
