ghetto update

this is what i did this week.  woo-hoo.  actually, i’ve been prepping for the last month.  but this week i got the first coat of primer on the north side.  and i got the cable one guys to come take down all their frankenstein cables everywhere.  whoever lived here before thought they needed cable into ever single room (minus the bathroom and kitchen) with three satellites mounted to the roof for back-up.  their day is done.

PAINT2PAINT

observe the improvement.

PAINT3

the rest of the house isn’t even scraped all the way, but i needed to get paint on this side because every time the temperature would change, more paint would decide to come off.  i almost had it done and then we had a week long rain storm and i had to entirely redo it.  i have learned my lesson.  so this side is primed/caulked and ready to go.  unfortunately, there are four sides to a house…  but, before i had the chance to become too discouraged, my mother and father volunteered to come over for a week and show me how it’s done.  they will be here this evening.  now talk about spoiled.  : P
