Swatch This!

12 08 2010

Despite having picked a paint colour for the exterior of the house, I spent today surrounded in paint swatches. Primarily as I’ve had representantives at the house today to prepare quotes to paint the outside of the house.

This is a job I’m just not going to do. I probably could, but I want it done professionally, and there’s some repairs to be made. So it’s a much better idea to have someone who knows what they’re doing attend to it all. That way I also get a warranty, so if something goes wrong, it’s not my fault! πŸ˜‰

There’s one more company coming tomorrow, along with a carpenter. A female carpenter. I can’t wait! There’s just nothing better than a woman with a power tool! πŸ˜‰

The plan is that we get the house exterior painted and completed before we head back to Australia in September. This is going to be an interesting process.

Lots of women have power tools — they’re called sewing machines! πŸ˜‰

I’m all about equal opportunity!
