Painting the front of the house

I can't even begin to say how time consuming the prep work is to paint a house. I began with flaking and scraping all the paint that would come off. Then I took an orbital sander using 60 grit to sand more paint and feather the edges. I would have used a pressure washer however, the Modesto Police are writing citations for violators. All the new primer and paint are being applied with a brush.

New Color Scheme

Painting the house a section at a time. Lots of scraping and sanding. The current paint is 30 years old. Lots of prep work.

New Old Style Screen Door

Took me a solid 8 hours to make this screen door and door trim. I kept it original using Douglas Fir wood and cutting to 4 1/2 inch width.
