Missing pics again but if I take some tomorrow I will update!
With the rain every weekend really messing with plans and cold weather coming soon I decided a week ago to just do the deck anyway, it’s a covered porch so the majority of it would be just fine and hopefully the rain would hold off anyhow (spoiler : it didn’t).
Well I spent all day Saturday sanding the deck while Chloe watched Alex and Ryan painted the red molding on the porch soffit (and the tops of the posts). That came out awesome! Finally about 6pm I had finished sanding and cleaning up and started staining. By 7 I had to quick for a few min to give Alex a bath and then finished up while Chloe read books to Alex. I was done in time to do the rest of bedtime!
There wasn’t any packing to do because our truck was filled with our new bed (king size bed!) so we just relaxed after bedtime. Of course at 6am I woke up to pouring rain! Our windows were all out upstairs too (getting painted by our neighbor) but luckily the rain was really coming straight down so everything was fine (except the ends of the deck that got soaked!).
No idea how it really faired, it stopped raining for our drive Sunday and I’m heading up there tonight and I’ll get to see how it looks after a week of drying.
This past weekend we stayed in NY and I got the built-in doors primed finally. They still need paint but the primer I could spray on since it was sanded after anyhow. I really need to set up a better spot to paint – the primer had tons of bugs stuck in it
