Wow, they've spent 6 days getting it to the point of being ready to paint. There was a lot of work involved in getting rid of those stupid wood shingles. Now there is a lot of sanding to be done on that trim paint. They had to take it down to bare wood in a lot of places.
All of the windows are covered. Its nice that they can't see inside the house anymore, but its fairly dim in there now.
No, we are not painting it brown, and whatever that other color is there. They do a base coat of whatever odds and ends they have, mixed together. It acts like a primer before they put the actual color on.
The guy told me they've had several people see a brown base like this and want it for the final color, but they can never match it exactly since its such a hodge podge. I told him he didn't have to worry about that with us since I think its ugly. But still, THERE IS NO MORE YELLOW!!
