Family Asks Neighbors To Help Them Pick Paint For Their House, Surveys Them By Posting A QR Code In Front Of Their House

There’s probably no better time to renovate or remodel your house than the quarantine. Both out of boredom and with plenty of free to spare, people are starting to do stuff around the house that they have been putting off for quite some time. Take for instance The Landreths family who decided that it’s time to repaint their house. However, the family of four quickly realized that it’s not that easy to pick the right color, so they decided to crowdsource the best option by creating a survey and went viral for it!

“We don’t want to be that neighbor with that bright ugly house that everyone sees every day,” Brian Landreth told KGW8. So, what’s a better way to solve this issue other than asking your neighbors which color they prefer?

After all, they will be the ones who will see the house more often than the owners, as they pass it by. So, the family put a sign that asks people to “Help us choose a color”.



The sign includes a QR code that takes passersby to the Google Docs survey where they can cast their votes.



Not only does this idea serves a good way to pick the best color, but it also helped Landreths’ daughter Grace with her homework. The teenage girl is taking a technology class and decided to use this survey as a way to collect data for a school assignment. While the family was hoping for a few hundred responses, they didn’t except for the sign to go viral. Now, they have over 70,000 responses! “I didn’t think people from across the planet would vote on the color of my house that they probably don’t know where it is,” Grace said.

The Survey asks people to vote from 1 to 5, with 1 being ‘HGTV Level Amazing’ and 5 being Yuck. They are allowed to pick from such colors as rocky mountain, wild orchid, good taste, blessed blue, and it’s well.
