Another side finished! Mr. Granny and I both worked on it this morning, then son-in-law Bryan came over this afternoon and painted the peak. I'm so thankful for Bry's help! I thought my arms and shoulders would get sore, but it's my legs and feet that bother me. My legs get so tired after about 3-4 hours of climbing up and down the ladder.
I think we'll spend tomorrow doing our "quality control check". The heavily textured siding always seems to have a few spots here and there that didn't get fully covered with paint, so we try to check it over once everything is dry, and do the necessary touch ups. Bryan left his long handled roller here for me to use. I hate to tell you I have painted everything so far with a 3" paint brush!
I can also trim the arborvitae (Mr. Granny painted the back of it!), get the sawhorses and boards and ladders all moved out to the back, then give the yard a bit of cleanup. In other words, regroup a bit before we tackle the back of the house. I still have to paint the facia on the front of the house, but some of that is going to take some heavy sanding and priming first. That might be a job for next week.
