The house looks crazy right now because 80% of it is scraped and primed a lovely blue-grey color with big splotches of old turquoise here and there where the shingles that are in need of replacement weren't worth scraping. We are now waiting for the carpenter to come and do the shingles and trim repairs before the final paint job can be completed.
When will the carpenter be here? Two weeks. When will the painter be back after that? Two weeks.
We'll just have to wait and see!
