Gratz Industries HQ: Good-bye Scissor Lift!

>> Sunday, June 1, 2008

The house is completely covered - and bird-proof. Yay! I had to get up at 6:00 am on Friday to finish a second coat of paint on the last side of the house before they came to take the scissor lift away, but it's done. Whew!

Um, pay no attention to the bit of safety equipment that's supposed to be attached to the scissor lift but is leaning against the front of the house in the picture above.

We still have to caulk the seams and put the battens on, but all of that can wait until after we move in. Which will hopefully happen sometime this decade. . .

Here's the last side of the house - we forgot to take a picture after it was all done, but it's almost done here.

And we weren't just working on siding - oh no! Remember this tub? The ones that the idiots stored lying on its side? Outside? In the wet grass?

After the diligent application of some naval jelly and lots of elbow grease. . .

It looked like this.
Add some primer (and a little help from Jo). . .
And you get this.
Jo's color choice for her tub was sea green. She's a little obsessed with sea green. This is just the first coat so it's still kind of streaky. I'm hoping to get the feet back on tomorrow and get this hauled into place. Their color is a special surprise. I will tell you that it made Jo say, "Ooooooh."

Jo's tub was my side project. Alan's was insulation.
He definitely drew the short straw. But look how good at it he is!
Sadly, there's still a lot to go.
Maybe he'll have a chance to hang some more this week while I'm on the road for work. :-)

It's looking good. I like the house without the battens, it looks as if the walls are tiled. Now I know who to call to do insulation, thanks for the tip. HaHA. Hope to see ya'll around.

Wow! That looks amazing. Sea green looks perfect on it.
