I didn't realize until today, that there are not many people from Alaska contributing on this website ... maybe because most everyone has already built their homes and didn't know about the help one could get from this site ... oh well, their loss ...

The house is small, painting should be no big deal. So why is it taking so long? We decided to do the painting ourselves to save some money and while it is being done with a good paint and two good coats, it is taking awhile to complete. 

First came the caulking... and caulking... and caulking. Yes, it is an important step and CANNOT be skipped, but I had NO IDEA how much caulking would be needed, and we still have the covered porch area to caulk.

Then came painting. Since the place is SO small, we opted to not rent a sprayer as "it should not take that long to get done." Famous last words. We started with the body, which actually went quickly, and then I was put on bed rest for a week. And it had to be our last week of good weather. It was a beautiful week, sunny days, temperatures in the 60's and 70's and no progress as I was stuck in bed and my husband works nights and sleeps during the daylight hours of the day. After the doc gave me the all clear it seemed we had rain, extreme cold, or on the few nice days, I had to work. SO, the trim part of the painting is STILL underway. We have the east side done, part of the west side (which is the largest side), a very small part of the north side and a very small part of the south side. OH, and that sprayer decision -- for the trim I would suggest renting one. You will get done A LOT faster.  Regardless, it will get done.

Painting so far has run (with the cost of brushes, tape, etc.) just over $250.
