House update

Not a ton to report on the house painting front. It's about 80% done, and will likely get 100% done the weekend of September 7. But... between the afternoons being HOT (especially since our home faces west) and it getting darker a little earlier, it's just not happening.

And that's ok. It'll get there. And the neighbors understand. :)

The left to do list:

  • Caulk and paint about a 5'x5' patch by the kitchen the blue/green/gray color. (about 1 hour)
  • Spray paint the last shutter. (5 minutes)
  • Hang 4 shutters (30 minutes)
  • Paint the kitchen window trim (30 minutes)
  • Spray paint (and regular paint for the unreachable areas) the gutter above the kitchen (30 minutes)
  • Paint the trim under the gutter by the kitchen. (30 minutes)
  • Paint the lower trim around dining room and living room. (10 minutes)
  • Paint the small dining room window's trim. (30 minutes)
  • Test the area above small dining room window, decide on color, and paint that 4'x4' area with someone holding the ladder (1 hour)
  • Paint the backside of the last stairwell wall (after caulking the one trouble spot) (30 minutes)
  • Paint blue/gray/green behind the downspout by the living room window (10 minutes)
  • Spray paint the downspout by the kitchen window (5 minutes)
  • Paint the ceiling on the front step landing (30 minutes)
  • Paint the trim on the front step landing (20 minutes)
  • Paint the surround on the garage. (10 minutes)
  • Finish stripping the garage, sand, and stain (final house project this fall) (ugh)
  • Paint the foundation cinderblocks. (2 hours)
See, all in all, not tooooo much left to do.
