BEFORE & in-progress AFTER: Exterior Painting of Our House

This week Jake painted the ENTIRE exterior of our house. We bought the paint back in the fall & then had an unusually cold & long winter for North Carolina.  Jake says he is 95% done.  There is still some touch ups & cutting in to finish, but overall it is beautiful!

See more details of the front entry before & after HERE.

Wow, Jake really did an amazing job on painting the exterior of our house – considering the fact that it’s still not finished. I love the color you guys chose; it’s a lot more modern and it looks pretty solid. Anyway, thanks for sharing this post with us, Meg. All the best!
