We divided into teams of rollers and brushers!
I have to tell you that I had the best team possible! We all just kept going until about 12:30pm when we stopped to go to lunch nearby. We all needed a little rest and some food and drink!
Here is what it looked like when we quit for lunch. (Or close to it anyway, I think Alan had finished putting the siding up on the first picture!)
We had gotten 3 sides completely primed and the 4th side needed to be rolled. We were running out of primer however (the siding soaks it up like a shop vac!), and Alan was going to get us another 5 gallon tub of it when he went to the store.
We had a great lunch and headed back to see what we could finish. The temps were holding for us, so we finished the primer we had on hand. While we were waiting for Alan to get back, I ventured to suggest that we open the paint and start working with that on the sides that we knew were ready. I am not at all sure that the others thought it a good idea, but since I was the "crew chief", that is what we did!
Well, to all of our surprise, we were able to get 3 sides primed and painted, and the 4th side is primed and waiting for it's coat of paint. I will be watching the weather tonight to see when we can get that done. Here is a few pictures of how it looks now.
We were all gone by 4:30pm, and I expect there to be many hot baths and ibuprofen tablets taken this evening. I know that I am going to partake for sure.
It was a delightfully fun day and we all felt a huge sense of accomplishment in what we had managed. Now if the weather will cooperate just one more day....
Welcome home Tuesday Weavers Stash, welcome home!
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
