Introducing the Rancho San Juan homeowners paint database!

Here, behind the scenes of the website committee, we have been quietly developing a cool feature that was proposed by our new website committee member/volunteer Ron Kessler of Via Zamora.

With his extensive background in computer science and technology, he proposed an idea to the Board that we create a paint database of all the 140 homes in Valinda and Mirador.  Information for the paint colors existed, but only in hardcopy form, and it was very hard to make sense out of it effectively.

So without further ado, Ron quietly set forth in his garage/workshop/office, and in a little over a week produced a working application which listed all the various paint and trim colors for each and every house in the 70-home Valinda tract - selectable by street address.

So once you select your house (in the Valinda tract for the time being only), you will be able to determine the actual builder specs of the exterior stucco walls, the raised foam areas, the trim detail, and lastly the accent colors.

Furthermore, not only do you see the paint color callouts, but each of the four colors is linked to the Sherwin-Williams website which will give you further detail on that paint specification and its “neighboring” family of colors.
The URL for this database is located at  Another feature of this system is that it will also list other homes within the tract with an identical paint scheme.

Unfortunately, we are unable to complete the database for the Mirador paint colors at this time due to incomplete and confusing information from the builder - but we are awaiting further information from them, and as soon as we get definitive answers regarding the actual paint colors used in each of the 70 Mirador homes, we are in a temporary holding pattern. As soon as we have made any additional progress in this area we will certainly update the community.

Many thanks to the proactive efforts of Ron for this very useful application!
