Four Long Months... of Outside House Chores

The summer in reverse.. back to front.
We almost didn't make it, the cold weather has arrived. We just finished putting the second coat of paint on the outside of this big old house. All we have left are the two doors, but hopefully we can sneak them in before the snow flies. The walls, paint covered cedar shakes were in terrible shape, they needed so much scraping, it took two months to do. A long two months of constant work.

luckily a friend lent us scaffolding

I told some that I am a princess and he was digging me a moat..
