At last a significant milestone in our project has arrived: the completion of all the red paintwork on the exterior walls. We had left the front porch until last because it was important to get the exposed surfaces of the house done while the weather held good.
This week, Michael braved an almost vertical ladder to finish the high part of the west wall. That left me to complete the porch.
Even the first coat made a huge difference. (And yes, we do plan to replace the screen door with a more attractive design.)
Next up: the window trim, and the porch floor and steps.
