Trying out the porch paint

I thought I hung up my paintbrushes for the week, but I got bored yesterday and 10 gallons of Iron Frost paint were calling my name. So I popped open a can and painted a bit on the front porch to see if I am going to like the color. I love it! Balances out the light blue on the ceiling a brushed nickel lanterns. Sometime after all this rain passes and we get a warm day again, I’m going to paint it on. Merry Christmas!!!

Today’s Work

Working on the porch. Roofers moved on to the back of the house freeing up the exterior carpentry team to get the front entryway boards replaced.

I hope to start sanding and painting the porch deck in another week to week and a half. Then the porch will be complete. I think the roofers underestimated the scope of the job, and the time it would take. They are still here after three weeks. They hope to be done in another week to week and a half. After they finish with the shingles, They will fix the flat roof, and then go back and put all of the decorative flashing and edges around the entire house.

Drywall is almost done in the new bathroom addition. I hope to be able to paint the walls this week. Then, next week, the plumber will be able to come and set the fixtures and turn on our new water lines. Yay! I will have two bathrooms in the house now! Lol
