See the difference?

My co-workers thought it would be a good idea if I painted above the porch before the new roof goes on Wednesday.  So I've been working like a dog trying to git 'her done  I don't usually work more than two days in a row due to my carpal tunnel syndrome, and exhaustion.  It took 4 1/2 hours to prime, twice as long as I predicted.  The eaves are very difficult due to the placement of the gutters.  I removed the downspout but am hoping it won't rain and ruin my paint job.  But look at the before, during and after!

I'd like to rid the world of asbestos shingles.
With shingles removed last weekend.


I had to drag my six-foot stepladder up here because I couldn't reach this corner.  the cinderblock wasn't enough due to my being vertically challenged.
 





Fall has arrived and is particularly beautiful this year.
