We whipped out staining the side around the fireplace and then down the east wall to the corner... wow! that went fast!
Even my fragile clematis flowers were carefully worked around
as Steve held the trellis away while I stained the wall behind it.
The west wall took a bit more to finish as the ground slopes away on the far end....
Not only did we finish up the house, but we also got the garage completed too! We hopped in the shower and said that was enough... We are planning on putting the house on the market next year, so it's good to get this done now. Anyone wanna buy a house?
I am thinking later this week I will pick up the darker brown stain for the decks... we have decks on three sides of the house that all need a quick rolling, the railings are looking okay, just the flat portions need a touch up. That is easy for me with a roller on a long handle and I have done those in the matter of an hour in the past. And I still have a bucket of hunter green to touch up the shutters and doors...
Whew... maintaining a home is not fun, and we are sure looking forward to the days when it will only be the motorhome to maintain.
Now to enjoy the evening out on the deck, raise a glass of wine in celebration, and eyeball the finished house as the fruits of our labors.
