rise and shine

Nothing gets the blood pumping at 7AM on a Thursday morning like an hour and a half of exterior painting before you go to work. So here is the breakdown... The weather has been relatively mild for the last week, despite a few rain showers. This provided me with a small window to paint the first floor exterior of the house. Paint needs the minimum average temperature within 24 hrs of application to be about 40 degrees. It's November and today the high temp is 69 degrees (thank you, global warming), so I can't afford to look a gift horse in the mouth.

With the keen input from Manmade, LLC, I decided a while back to paint the masonry and brick of the first floor exterior and courtyard ...... yellow!!!

surprise, surprise.
