I sometimes wonder why I waited to so long to start on the outside of the house. I think I wanted to create a bit of a sanctuary inside--get the bedrooms and living room painted so I could have a space to escape the constant construction before working on the exterior. Thankfully, exterior paint is usable until a few degrees above freezing so if I'm lucky, I'll get to paint right through the new year. And I imagine it'll take that long. It's a lot of area to cover. Plus, a good majority of the house needs siding put up. That will come slowly but surely too.
First things first. I painted the deck ceiling. It wasn't much work to paint the big rectangle other than leaving a bit of a crick in my neck and giving my arms a good workout. Totally worth it.
All done! Now, for the rest of the house...
