2008 was not a big working on the outside of house year, between the GAP Fire, busy with work and cleaning out in the inside of the house, little was done on the outside.
So this spring my mom decided some long deferred maintenance was getting done.
Like painting.....She threatened to climb up on the contractors scaffolding and start priming. I decided maybe I had better start painting.
About 300+ hours, 2 coats of primer, 2 coats of paint and 24 tubes of caulk later.....it takes a LONG time and is a ton of work.
And you can cancel your gym club membership.
Because the house had so many years of differed maintenance, I used a brush to make sure I got paint in all the cracks and to seal up the old paint.
