We are FINALLY done painting the house. I'll post some before and after pictures soon... I think there's a very nice (though very subtle) change!
And despite several people's suggestion that Ben should just hire someone to do the very top of the house (because the house is on an incline and standing on a ladder was very dangerous), my terco husband still did it himself. I was holding my breath and praying the whole time I was holding on to that ladder for my dear husband's life. I was soaking wet too... it's so hot in a very humid way up here! Very different from the south Texas summer I'm used to.
