“Many hands make the work light”, right?
I don’t think I have ever been so grateful for all these folks, as I am this week.
We’re trying to beat the cold and wet weather coming to Alabama soon. Today, it’s a comfortable day to be working outside. I think the next few days are supposed to bring rain and colder weather. Paul and I thought it would be better to have some of these things finished (at least mostly finished!), before that bad weather arrived.
We’re on a learning curve here. It’s our first experience with a paint sprayer. We’ve learned that drop cloths only work so well…and I may have forgotten to cover those first shrubs when we started painting.
Paul worked with Matthew for a while yesterday to make sure he was prepared for the job.
Matthew is finishing the porch this morning. Jacob is working on the other side to install the two porch lights (we will still need to add two outdoor ceiling fans).
Joshua was out before work this morning draping our rock retaining wall.
I have to maintain our home, supervise the painting, decide where my kitchen windows will be installed, school the children, and begin sorting through winter clothing. It’s going to be a full day!
On top of all of that, the contractor has shown up to begin siding the garage side of our home. He’s waiting on Matthew to finish the rails on that side. By the end of the day, we’re hoping to have a new attic window and for the siding to have begun.
Anyone want to come help paint?? 😀
