Had a busy shop week last week so I didn't get much done on the Stude. Here is a terrible pic of where it is now. IN PAINT!!

Cleaned the shop again today, or should I say one of my shop partners grandkids did.

Won't get much time on it this week, short some help..

Well, got a few more house goodies to do before I get back to my projects. Had to replace all the trim around my dining room window.

Thanks! When I saw the mess I grabbed the closest thing I had to contain it; my old bed sheet the wife gave me to cover the engine! So it got it contained into a small area, but the sheet is wasted, and not worth cleaning. Maybe I should tear it up to have oily rags to wipe things with!

I have to strip my trim this summer and repaint it all again. We have steel siding, so no painting there, but some of the trim is getting bare spots on the southern exposure.

At least it isn't far to the ground, sometimes those "ladder rides" aren't that much fun.

Put aluinum siding on mine 25 yrs. ago, and haven't had to pint since! Still have trim and eves that need paint, but it only takes a couple days of easy work to do them.

Why is it necessary for insurance reasons for a house to be sided or painted? Curious because it is hurting us trying to find a home loan within our reasonable range. If its sided it raises it out of our range but if its not and even has been recently repainted it has to be repainted for insurance reasons again putting it out of comfortable price range. And the roof things kills it too with reroofing the house and have to het details on it because the city code allows 3 but no more. So once you find that out which is a pain because records arent kept only going off of memory you find out it already has 2 or 3 so soon an entire new roof not just a leveling roof redo would be in order.
