It's Done!

May 4th, 2010 at 07:44 pm

& so it is done...

Dh called me around noon to tell me the painters were done, and called me back in the afternoon to tell me the paint company's owner picked up the check.

I just got home, and boy, they did a GREAT job!

I had wanted to do a once over before dh handed over the check, but I guess it didn't matter.

They just have to come back tomorrow to put the weather stripping back on the front door.

& so ends our first "big maintenance" as homeowners. Heck, the only other maintenance we have done, is bird proofing. We've been homeowners for about 10.5 years.

$2200 to paint the exterior. Definitely worth every penny.

I am just in awe in how quickly they painted the house and what a great job they did. It was about 12 hours of prep, painting, and cleanup, I'd say. Not including a couple of hours of power washing, last week.

I will post pictures, later. Big Grin

    I washed and repainted my whole house the end of last summer. It took me almost 4 weeks, but I also was sealing cedar shakes to put on the new addition. The rest of the house was painted; and then my husband put up some new soffets. My total last year for the addition (flooring, cedar shake siding), matching flooring for the livingroom, a new deck, repainting the house, soffets, cedar sealer, and some landscaping items came to $1,526.60. It looks so nice around here. This year, I am hoping to add a bigger shed and a rose garden.

    I don't know if I will bother with before pictures. It's the same color. Will see if it comes across in the pictures - I did take "before" ones.
