The house painting was finally finished on Saturday. After dithering around deciding on colours, once we’d chosen Blackberry and Leapfrog we were anxious to get things started and finished but the weather really sucked. We’d get a clear day and then a wet day or a clear morning with a stormy afternoon or just a straight out rainy day. It was pretty frustrating.
And here is after – as well as painting we both had our stoop extended past the width of our front doors – this should prevent any more visitors falling under the Japanese Maple:
The lady on our right also had her house painted – she changed her mind on the base colour when it was half done and then twice on her trim – it was interesting to come home not knowing what combination would be done while I was at work. I think she’s happy now.

Three others in our row have now signed up to have their houses painted so in a couple of month’s time there will be pretty houses all in a row.
