These are the before pictures taken after we cleared the porch on Friday morning. The painters were coming on to pressure wash and we thought that meant early. We got up again at 6:00 and cleared everything left away from the house. Removed the mailbox and also the three window AC units from the house and waited.
Lori checked in with them around 8:30 a.m. and in fact they were not coming until the evening as they were finishing up a different job.
Friday I had also worked from home to give us an extra hour (commute time) to get stuff done. The only problem with this plan was by evening it was so dang hot in the house. It stayed this way all weekend, we couldn’t really keep doors or windows open either.
Saturday they were back bright and early. Before 7:00 a.m. just as I got home from the store with ice for our cooler and beverages for them. Lori had a class she was teaching so she was out of the house just before I got taped in. They left about 5pm having the main color and the ceiling color on the porches, both coats of each complete.
Sunday they were back about 8a.m. and only had the trim and the garage to do. The garage is the same color as the trim, just in metal paint. They were so thorough and caulked, sanded the trim and put two coats on everything before rolling out about 7:30 p.m.
The “paint the house” has been on the list for at least a year and it is awesome to have it done. Lori trusted me on the paint colors and I trusted her on the ceiling accent and I think it all pretty perfect!
