The back of the house is finished! That means just one side left to paint, and that's the smallest and least fussy area of all. Much of that side is taken up by the fireplace brick, and there are no windows or doors. It does have a peak to paint, but son-in-law Bryan has promised to tackle that for me.
Of course, I still have some facia boards to sand down and paint in the front, then new rain gutters and downspouts will also need a couple of coats of paint before they are installed, but at least the main part of the house is nearly finished, the end is in sight and it's all ready for the new sliding patio doors and windows.
