Believe it or not, we’ve started painting a section of the container house project with the Nautilous Blue Paint. It looks amazing! We’re so impressed with the result and know you are going to love it too.
Our Modus Operandi
Our plan is to finish a section of the house at a time. While the scaffolding is up in a certain area, we’re going to clad with the fibre cement boards, neaten up the edges and joins, attach the fascias and external ceilings, and paint. When everything is completed in that certain section, we will dismantle the scaffolding and re-erect it in the next section to be completed. Therefore, we will have sections of our house painted in our Plascon Micatex Nautilous dark blue paint before other sections are even there yet!
We have started with the back section so that we’re not practicing on the front section that everyone will see from the road.
A Strong Nautical Theme with Our Blue Paint
It is amazing how much of a strong nautical theme is coming through on the container house project. It is not something we consciously planned, but it’s still awesome:
- Shipping containers
- Shiplap cladding
- Dark blue paint, the colour of which Plascon named “Nautilous”. I don’t think we could have chosen better.
Our Thoughts on the Dark Blue Paint
We painted a small section of the cladding with the paint and all decided it is perfect. It looks amazing on the cladding. Not only that, but it also brings out the wood grain texture embossed on the fibre cement boards.
Plascon’s Micatex paint has excellent coverage. We are really pleased with the coverage and as a result are now expecting to use less paint than we originally thought. Kevin and Louis were expecting to have to paint three coats, but it looks great after only one. We will do a second coat for longevity and colour fastness in the sun.
We are so happy with the paint and the look it is giving our house. What do you think?
