17|2013 Painting. Again. (May 19, 2013)

Among the many projects on our lake place list is to paint the outside of the home because the paint is chalky and quite worn.  Armed with the  power washer and a crew of 5 we decided to tackle the back of the house first.  That way we could learn from our mistakes and any errors wouldn’t be as visible to guests.  The crew was my father, brother, nephew, husband and me.  The first step was to replace all the screws in the siding that were rusted then scrape off or power wash the paint on the siding and tape plastic over the windows to prepare for spray painting.  That took most of the day.

By late that afternoon my brother and nephew were able to squeeze in a few hours to fish at the dock, although they didn’t catch anything for dinner.  Instead we went to eat catfish at my favorite place at the lake, Catfish Platter.

After dinner we played a bit with Dad’s metal detector but soon it was too dark so we had a bon fire and roasted marshmallows.  All-in-all it was a nice and productive day.

The next morning we started painting the primer.

And finally the top coat.  Now, we have to finish the rest of the house.  Oh boy!
