I recently got the idea to paint the outside of my house.
I started with just painting the front door.
Then I got really ambitious and picked out window trim. Then I tackled the front porch and stained the wood. Now I have moved onto painting the entire home. I should have hired painters. I am too deep into the project to quit now. It is a mess because my house is very tall and on a slant. My ladder sinks into the sand and threatens to tip over. I also am battling bees, spiderwebs and the heat. I figured out that the best place to put my ladder was directly on my windows. I felt more sturdy and could grip the window frame to angle my body all over the place. Well one window was flimsier than the others. I put a big crack down the center. I have started with a window replacement company and they recommend getting a window with a film over it. The film is totally clear and doesn’t damage the window. All it does is protect your home from the sun’s rays. The window I broke was my son’s bedroom window. His bedroom is always 1000 degrees in the summer, so I went ahead with the film. I don’t even notice it but my son notices the difference in temperature in his bedroom. I kind of want to call the company for decorative window film installation on every window in the household. I keep telling myself one project at a time though.
