I'm so glad that Wayne doesn't mind climbing a ladder! We had talked about starting the primer coat that afternoon, but the rain clouds rolled in and we had to bag that idea. But that's okay, because the night before Wayne's early (or late) Christmas present arrived, and that gave him time to set up his new speakers.
Friday after work we spent a few hours starting the trim work.
It's kind of sad that the only way to get rid of this discoloration was to paint the whole house, but now that doesn't have to bother me any more.
It was the perfect evening to work outside; too bad this picture doesn't do the gorgeous sunset justice.
The next morning we got an early start to take advantage of the shade. It's true that many hands make light work, but it was still an exhausting project. We miss our boys!
