Paint

  • The original paint that most of us had was Fuller O’Brien’s Whisper White 1@18-1, now sold at Pursel Paint, 875 Potter Street (one block north of Ashby, just west of 7th Street). Mention University Terrace and ask for the “old formula” for Whisper White. The original kitchen and bathrooms are semi-gloss; the rest of the unit, flat.
  • Exterior Paint Colors, purchased from Behr

  • Building 9 Interior Colors (hallway walls and doors) – I’m afraid we did not capture the information about the colors used to paint the walls of building 9’s hallways or the door colors. This was done at least 15 years ago.

Bristol Weeden, 415.576.1225. – “He’s a 1-man operation, and he’s very careful and meticulous, extremely neat, quiet, trustworthy (we left him on his own when we were out of town), accommodating, and reliable. We literally had no problems with him, and enjoyed having him around. His prices were on the lower side of the range of estimates we received, and we will definitely use him again and recommend him wholeheartedly to friends.”
