The paint job

Our contractor says the house painting will be done by the end of the week. I am dying to see what the color we picked looks like on the house, as they are still doing the trim. I'm not worried, though. Even the primer was an improvement, given that our shingle-style house had been tarted up like a Queen Anne by a previous owner with a questionable eye for color, never mind the whole chipping and fading situation.

Since the crew finished sanding, the process has been remarkably quiet. One of them seems to be using our arborvitae hedge as a changing room at the end of the day - at least I hope that is what he is doing back there - but at least he's discreet about it. I am almost used to the sound of earnest young men muttering in Russian outside the window while I'm dressing.
