Our house is on its way to a new coat of paint. The painting part feels more like the finale to this whole process than the main process. So much prep is involved with painting a house. Today we have carpenters coming out to replace all rotted boards. Tomorrow they will pressure wash the entire house and Thursday they’ll fill in all holes and caulk all the seams. THEN, after all this, it’s paint time. I look forward to painting the house but I like to see this part too; taking down old boards and putting up new ones, replacing trim, it’s all part of the transformation.
