Due to an issue about 'faulty' paint (paint reaction with the cement render.. or cementreaction with the paint) ;) ICI-Dulux have given me 10 gallons FREE of weathershield masonry CountyCream paint to re paint the outside of my house. Thing is I've gotta re do it all, only three years after I did it originally.

So this evening (after all the rain we've had today) I thought I'd make the most of the summery night and make a start on it, a bit every day and it'll be done before I know it........ just got to get up to those chimney stacks at some time lol

Masked a few windows up and had an hour painting. :)

first few pix from tonight to see me starting.. you can clearly see the colour difference between the County Cream colour, from the last time it was originally painted back in aug 2007.

me!!!


cut in..


part rolled, you see the colour change!








I'll update more pix if ppl don't mind over the next week or so as I do a bit more.

brought a section down at a time, losing the joining edge behind where the RWP will go.




the back all done...
