Painting is Underway

Today was the day for the painters to get started on the actually painting of my house.

I heard them pull into the drive this morning and I poked my head out the front door to see if they needed anything before I headed back to work.

House Painting, Tracy, New Paint, New Color, sprucing it upI heard a bunch of bumping and banging, but one of the first sings from the inside was seeing a ladder through the window. Looks like I need to work on cleaning some cobwebs.

House Painting, Tracy, New Paint, New Color, sprucing it upIt was a bit hard to stay focused on work as I kept hearing paper rusting and the sound of tape coming off the roll. I eventually started hearing the sound of the paint pump which has a distinctive sound. I finally just had to take a morning break and see what was going on.

It is a little hard trying to visualize how dust accumulates on parts inside an instrument while at the same time paint is being sprayed on the side of the house. However, I decided to think of the paint like a spray of dust and may have figured out some of the dust problems I have been working on.

The color on the back of the house definitely looks a bit different. Perhaps it is the light reflecting off of the neighbors house which is a dark brown.

More updates tomorrow as the painting of the trim starts to pull everything together.
