Last summer our house was painted by me. The job took about two weeks. First, the exterior was washed usingwarm water and a mild detergent. Then all the chinks and pores in the walls were sealed with putty. After the putty had had a chance to dry, the exterior could be painted. A latex paint was used because it is easy to apply and cleans up with water. A whole week 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. Acolor was used that was very close to the original color. Our house is a two-story house, which meant that a tall ladder was needed to do the 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 the back. Even my dad said that a good job was done.

El verano pasado pinté nuestra casa. El trabajo tomócerca de dos semanas. En primer lugar, lavé el exterior con agua caliente y un detergente suave. Entonces, sellé todas las grietas y poros en las paredes con masilla. Podría pintar el exterior, después de que la masilla tenga la oportunidad de secarse Usé pintura de látex, debido a que es fácil de aplicar y se limpia con agua. Necesité una semana para terminar esta parte del trabajo. Utilicé uncolor que era muy parecido al color original. Nuestra casa es una casa de dos pisos, lo que significa que necesité una escalera de altura para hacer el segundo piso. Tuve que equilibrar la lata de pintura en el último peldaño de la escalera, mientras yo trabajaba. Sentí una gran satisfacción cuando el trabajo estuvo terminado. Tuve que darme una palmadita en la espalda. Hasta mi papá me dijo quehice un buen trabajo.
