Not a whole bunch completed today, but I got the side door raised, and added some paint to the siding and trim on the front.
I'd live there! Nice place.
Thanks Oldtruck. This weekend I am going to try and do some post wrap, and paint the front gable and trim if the weather holds out. It is supposed to start raining on Saturday evening. If the weather is bad, I can always move to the inside and tear out the ceiling in a few rooms that are left. I also need to frame a wall in the master bath, and 3/4 bath. So I still have plenty to keep busy. I also need to order the metal to wrap the trim, and such. From rough calc it should run about 900 for the metal, but it is already bent so I don't have to try and do coil stock myself. I think it would take me a very long time to do since I don't work with it everyday.
Got a little bit done this weekend. I painted the gable, did touch up on the front, and started to cut in the left side. I also started wrapping the porch posts. It was a very cold and wanting to rain kind of day for this time of year here. Maybe more will get done next weekend.
Last time I was doing stuff outside at our cabin, it was 10+ below. What's very cold?
When you need to paint but it to cold for the paint.
Oh and as far as 10+ below you can have that. If a person or animal were not in trouble, I would be inside. You can have that mess.
I was able to get about 90 percent of the exterior painted on Sunday. I think I am going to darken the gable paint. It looks washed out to me. So I will repaint them next weekend.
Went up and worked on the house some on Saturday. I was able to finish painting the main house body, and most of the trim. I repainted the front gable after having the paint tinted darker. I thought the color looked too close to the trim color. The only other painting remaining is the back gable. We had some nasty storms moving in and I did not think the back would have time to dry before the rain started. I started back working on wrapping the posts on the porch but the storms hit about 4 so I just packed up and went home.
This morning I ordered the metal for the roof, and all the trim parts. So in the next month or so I should have the outside finished with all the major work.
I was able to go up and work on the house on Saturday. The back gable is painted, and the porch post are wrapped. I also met with the pump guy about getting water up to the house. My buddy that is an electrician stopped in and we talked about wiring the house. From what he said we should be able to do it in a weekend.
Are you going to be living there?
Well that is the plan at some point. At the moment it would be a little far out, since I look after my 86 year old parents. So I plan on spending the weekends up at the house, and maybe a night or two during the week, as time allows.
So I have been working on the house for the past few weeks. I was able to do more demo on the inside, and frame some walls. On the outside I was able to get the metal wrap installed, and get the roof on.
