Following the plan I made for putting together a temporary scaffold, Charlie set up the ladders.
He had some trouble finding 2-by boards long enough to span the 2 ladders. The rig is sturdy but shaky.
Once it was set up he made sure to have everything necessary to not only finish the painting on the east side of the house,
but also to scrape and prime the soffit and fascia over this part of the house.
I had always intended to paint the trim when we painted the house 10 years ago but never got around to it. It’s in very needy shape now with much of the bare wood showing through.
We were planning to paint the trim after all the shingles were painted but to save from having to set up this contraption again we decided to finish this area.
But at least this much is FINISHED!
Even with the best intensions what have you left undone?
