Well we done did it. We finally painted the siding on our house. It took nearly 15 hours of scraping, priming, washing, nailing, and painting on the hottest weekend of 2006 (so far). We would have finished in 4 hours if I didn't have to move the ladder back and forth, up and down, left and right.
Thankfully my wife isn't afraid of walking on the roof and was able to lend a hand.
