siding and the back porch

Siding is finally going on the house this week!!

Which meant that I had to get the back porch ceiling
(not to be confused with the front porch ceiling!)

I foolishly went out there late Thursday morning
thinking I could prime,
run to 2 grocery stores
put said groceries away
and paint
all before Tyler came home.


The first coat of primer took  over 4 1/2 hours.

The second coat only took 3,
as did the 2 coats of paint.

what I thought would take a day
took 4.

But it looks pretty fabulous if I do say so myself.

And the siding guys are making fantastic progress :-)

(also - the electric company came yesterday - we now have power out to the house!!)


  1. Going to look so good. Painting always takes longer than one thinks it will.

  2. This will be a wonderful home for you and your family! So exciting to be part of so many steps of building it!

  3. Love that you can laugh in the face of such a brutal reality check! Lol!
    All your work is paying off - your new place is looking Bee-Eee-Aaay-UUU-tiful!


You're leaving me a comment?? Oh goody! I love comments :-)
