  1. as you know color selection is one of the most difficult points in the process. It can also be fun. This post should be made poster size and displayed in the sales office. Pictures of finished fun colored sheds next to this would help greatly. One of the most helpful tools was the small booklet showing different buildings and colors of completed building.

    Maybe PGP can provide a sellable kit of siding/trim and small premixed cans of paint to try before the team shows up on site.

    I enjoyed my many years at Tuff Shed working with clients on design and colors. Questions are welcomed.

  2. Jim, I am a new recruit for Tuff Shed in Ontario, Store #120. I have found the color chips to be helpful. I am able to have the customer take the chips and find what the best color will be for them. We have a color scheme on our wall of all the colors. It would be nice to have a portable version as well that we could take to different shows and fairs.
