All of the trim paint on the dormers is done, with the exception of one more coat for the west dormer. With the fading of summer, I’ve started focusing on the areas that will be the most exposed to rain. The fourth dormer, in the back of the house, is likely going to get neglected for one more year. It’s not visible from anywhere, so it’s easy to defer. Too easy.
We hired a young kid to help out with the painting, and it has really made things go so much faster. I can now work on prepping areas and then have him follow-up with the painting. He’s cheap, so even with his help, we are going to be coming out at only a fraction of what it would have cost to have someone else paint our house.
