The sheetrock guys finished installing & sanding every single wall & ceiling in the house.

Which means it’s time for primer!

Starting in the garage, because it is easier to paint ceilings & walls in the garage before the doors are installed.

Cloudy, rainy (MONSOON!) days didn’t make it easy.

Billy, the painter (actually the guy who owns the company & keeps up with his crews) carefully inspected every surface. If there was a nick, a bump, anything not completely smooth, he drew a circle around it in pencil. That means it had to be sanded & re-primed.

These guys work fast with no drips on the floor!

Ooo! Color!

(Gray primer was used because I chose a lovely dark red for the dining room.)

These are not the colors I chose… According to #1 assistant, 4 ounces of color is used in primer, while 8 ounces of color is used in the actual paint.
