Paint my house!

Here's a joke by Chris Rock:
"So I'm walking down the street, right? And I saw this prostitute, right? And I said, 'How much?' She said, 'For $300, I'll do anything you want.' I said, 'Bitch, paint my house!'"
So, we didn't hire a hooker and the price reflects that. We've got two guys and it should take about 5 or 6 days.

The landlord wanted to go with the solo guy who would have taken at least three weeks (probably 4) but would have been $300 less. I told Lyle that was a deal breaker. Having my yard, my life and my sanity interrupted for a month. The dogs wouldn't be able to go outside. They would bark at a stranger (though perhaps a familiar face after a month?)

Anyway, we are in the middle of the painting. It is going quickly. More pics to come when it's done. But here are some before and after. For maximum impact, I chose photos of before we moved in.

Front yard very much after.

the after pics should say "in the middle". The white is just the primer color. Stay tuned to see the final reveal! - Lyle
