I feel like a kid again. I'm ridiculously excited about getting our house painted. Like "Going-to-Disney-World" excited. Marc is nervous, I'm just glad to have some real change on the horizon and by that I mean I'm excited to have our house not be the ugliest, crackiest on the block.
This last week and weekend were jam-packed with painting prep. Sunday I got to go to Biltmore Estate with my grandma and aunt while Marc slaved away though!
Here's some pics of the work:
Here's some miscellaneous repairs.
The watertable repairs, there are about 6 spots like this that we had to repair. They were mostly below windows, where people had obviously tried to stand on the ledge to get into the window. Nice.
The wood window sills were all rotten, so we put Bondo on them to smooth them and stop the rot. Maybe we should just get a spray gun and bondo the whole dang house.
Here is the exterior with Marc's glorious scraping.
And here's something SCARIER than our house (imagine that!):
A HUGE SPIDER!
Seriously, HUGE. That is Marc's hand and if you don't know, Marc has big sausage fingers, so that spider is GIGANTIC! The body of it is the size of a nickel. Like it can't fit up your nose. And it could crawl into your mouth maybe, but it would have to bend it's legs and you would choke on it. Yeah, that is what I was thinking about when I was trying to sleep last night.
I just found out what kind of spider it is a Black and Yellow Argiope. Here is some info (It's not poisonous.)
