Last summer our house was painted by me. The job took about two weeks. First, theexterior was washed using warm water and a mild detergent. Then all the chinks and pores in thewalls weresealed with putty. After the putty had had a chance to dry, the exterior could bepainted. A latex paint was used because it is easy to apply and cleans up with water. A wholeweek was needed to finish this part of the job. I was very careful to apply the paint evenly
Because I did not want to have to apply two coats. A color was used that was very close to theoriginal color. Our house is a two-storyhouse, which meant that a tall ladder was needed to dothe second story. The paint can had to be balanced on the top rung of the ladder while I worked.
When the job was finished, a great deal of satisfaction was felt by me. I had to pat myself on theback. Even my dad said that a good job was done.
