Saturday 19 October  2019

Saturday - Had some help from the boys next door, got the wall scraped.  I'll TSP it, then we can prime and (finally!) paint it.  The weather has been near perfect for painting.

Friday 18 October  2019

Friday -

Thursday 17 October 2019

Thursday - Starting on the north wall - I pressure washed it again, then started scraping.  I can get the boys to help on some of this, it's a big and tall wall.

Wednesday 16 October 2019

Wednesday - Started scraping and wire brushing the north wall.  The weather is continuing to look remarkably good.

I texted TB up in Plummer that I wasn't coming - this weather is too good to pass up, that north wall is a disaster!

Tuesday 14 October  2019

Tuesday - In the morning I went off to Costco with AH, and refilled my propane tank.

Afterwards, painted the entire east wall with PH's help, looks pretty good, if I do say so myself. 

It took hours, because of the clapboards, and the impossibility of seeing "holidays" while applying the paint, which goes on nearly flat white.  It darkens to a tan/cream color, but it takes 45 minutes or so.

Monday 14 October 2019

Monday - Did the "cutting in" around the doors and window and trim on the east side of the house. I also painted the lower several strakes of clapboard, since they were so far gone that two coats of finish are probably needed, on top of the primer.

My hands ache, but I have some help tomorrow.

Sunday 13 October 2019

Sunday - Shopping in the morning.

A bit of prepping on the back side of the house, patching, priming, cleaning, prior to painting tomorrow.

I did a bit more work in cleaning up the garage and work areas.
