Door County Cabin Makeover
Paint makes a big difference

They painted all vertical elements green to echo the trees; everything horizontal is blue for the water and sky; the sunburst balconies are bright yellow; and the cedar siding is ocher to honor the soil. The rear of the cabin is pictured at left.
