One more project down


We have been working, let's say Jim (& my dad helped a bit too) has been working on getting the house ready to paint all summer. And, yes it has just taken this long, with a new baby, the 4 season cabin he's helping build and then all the fun added in, it's just that way. This last weekend was gorgeous, amazing temps, not a lot of wind and an all around pretty good ND weekend. Jim got the bug to start painting since the sanding and priming was almost finished and I requested to Jim that at least the west side of our house needs to be painted by winter so i wouldn't have to look at a poke-a-dot house every time I came home. With this in mind, Jim started painting the west side and realized this project is going a lot faster then anticipated. This is when he decided he was going to get all the green finished by Sunday, he started on Saturday afternoon keep in mind. After church Jim was talking to some good friends at church about his project and the Mrs. said, 'we'll take CMW and the Mr. can come and help you guys paint so you can get this project done', I said that would great! Wan't this so awesome of her? And so, our super friend Mr. A came out to help and he is super efficient at painting too. By the evening hours our house was completely painted with a new green color and our window trim and down spouts were painted grey. How sweet our house looks now, I am in love all over again. :-)



Even the chickens helped with painting...
