Fine Paints of Europe coatings have long been embraced by scores of couples who make a lifestyle and a living out of home restoration. Jim and Carol Duff of Plymouth, Vermont have just completed restoration of the Griffin Homestead, their second project in the last five years.
Sited on eight acres with two spring fed ponds near the entrance of Coolidge State Forest in Plymouth, Vermont, this authentic 1840’s cape features three working fireplaces. The “broadbrook” which runs through the Duff’s property has provided Vermont children with the opportunity to pan for gold for more than two hundred years.
The Duffs decided upon a combination of Dutch Door Green trim (ECO) with Dutch Chocolate (Hollandlac) door and stairs. The body of the home is painted with Eurolux Housepaint in color E12-39 from the One Thousand Collection. Colors were selected by the Duffs after extensive conversations with Emmett Fiore and the use of “test cans” to confirm colors before ordering paints in quantity.
