I did have a 3 hour window where the weather was warm enough to paint so I hauled out the primer and grey paint. I ran out of day light and ambition at the same time but it did give me a chance to see what it will look like when it is completed.
The primer coat takes twice as long to complete because the shingles are so rough but the top coat goes on smooth and faster.
The window boxes have also arrived. They need to be primed and painted before we can start to hang them but they will be up and ready for spring planting. I will do a post just on the window boxes with info on where I order mine, why I order from Dave, and how my window boxes have held up after 7 years of Michigan weather.
