The transformation of PFHQ from it's original basic brown to something brighter continues.
A couple of really rainy weeks and the start of school brought things to a screeching halt for quite a while. That, coupled with a general desire to do something, anything rather than paint as summer break waned, has left the house painting job about 90% complete.
If you have ever remodeled or built your own place, you know that the constant danger of doing so is ... you can get used to things not quite finished.
You work,work,work and then something interferes with the schedule. In that pause, "almost done" can take on an air of normality.
The missing piece of trim.
The last little stone in the fireplace that requires a trip to the store.
The uncovered outlet in the corner where you ran short and ... well, no one sees that anyway.
You really mean to get to all these punch list items, ... you really do.
Then something amazing happens.
You stop seeing them.
It's like they have a Klingon (or was it the Romulans?) cloaking device.
Guests see them and think ... "How odd these PureFloridians are."
But you ... you are oblivious.
Until, in a picture of smiling people or a cute dog ... you stare horror struck at the background where the light switch has no cover or the floor trim stops one foot from the opposite wall.
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday!
We gotta fix that!
Whatever you do, don't look down.
(and yes, I know I spilled paint on the shingles ... that's what brown spray paint is for.)
So it was that I once again ascended to tackle some high altitude, not quite done, painting.
One more dormer, a bit of high trim second coating, and then it's touch up to the finish.
I did get out a little though.
It's tiny and it was new to me.
