I had promised a photo of the house painting in progress. Here's one from last Friday of the old gray paint, which was cracked and peeling, sanded off the front of the house. The crew has since put down a layer of primer, so the house is gray again. They're still doing some woodwork, replacing window sills and such, and that stuff will need to be primed before they can start putting the final coat of paint on. We're hoping they'll be done by the end of next week. More photos of the job as it progresses will be forthcoming.
