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. 


  1. Oh wow. As someone who has done a lot of this work myself, you have my deepest admiration.

    1. Thank you! Now that I nearly have the front painted, I can't wait to be done.
