Le Cotage Conversion- Making Ready for Michelangelo

 Don't have a notepad handy? Write on the wall! Sorry, Pete. Hope you don't get prank-called from this.
 I love caulking. Bet you didn't know that about me. I'm going to remember this next time someone does that whole "Share something no one knows about you." in the middle of some group function. I don't love thAt. Last time that was required of me, I said, " I like to eat cottage cheese with a fork."

Okay, so.... what is something you've shared when they've asked YOU that question? Ha. *wink, wink* (I'm not actually a winking kind of person)
 So, the metal siding had to be scrubbed with an acid then pressure washed. Guess who got to do those jobs?

NOT ME. Yay!
 In this case, youth is not wasted on the young. Here is Anthony being a good little helper. Also here, you can see the trim is up around the doors and windows. I didn't get a picture, but our nephew Brendan is here helping as well.
 He who fears no ladder. I was on one shorter than that, taping that very window and literally keeping myself from hyper-ventilating. "Trust in the ladder... It's not going anywhere...You'll be fine..."

And then, here's the support I get:

"You know you're only like two feet off the ground, right?"


They pound on the ladder and tell me I'm doing great.

Or 'some'one says: "I've never been more proud of you than at this moment."


Oh, yeah, Jake is only priming today. Okay, here are the two colors I narrowed it down to.The green will be the siding, the cream will be the trim.

Which is better? (A) or (B)
