The Thin Line


I am focusing on the thin vertical unpainted line between the finished NE corner and the finished east one-story extension. That line is evident to the far right (the unpainted siding). And today I was able to prime the cornice above the diamond-paned window, after a lot of prep work. The primer dries clear. Squee!!!!!!!!

    It will look amazing.

    I’m going to LOVE seeing this section painted, right down to the replacement water table at the base of these two walls. Go Ross!

    What do you do to prime weathered wood?

      I need this too – I have some old windows and trim that I am trying to get anything to stick to.

      Hi, Chad!

      Paint will not adhere to weathered wood. So, I sand the gray wood down till it is pink. Then I use a quality primer.

    Do you use Seal Grip Wood Permanizer?

    But, Ross, when do you plan to move in?
