The massive house painting project. No, our house is not at all large, but the project itself felt really big.
Two hundred and eighty two individual panes of glass are contained in our 1400 square foot home. Seriously. And at least 20% of those panes had to be replaced. About one third of those panes needed reglazing. All of the trim around all of those panes of glass had to be painted. Each
Other than our bathroom, every window is original to our home. Next spring Mike's project is repairing all of the double hung windows so they can be used as originally designed, able to open from the top or bottom. Another project.
We were blessed with a warm and dry extended fall season, which helped us finish the house. The whole project isn't completely done, we still need to paint the basement windows, the garage, and the fence. I need to find new window boxes, to replace those too worn out to be repainted. We will get there.
As I drive down our street, or approach our home from my walk, I love seeing the result of all of our work. It seems to be happy, and smiling in contentment, with it's new coat.
