Two houses that I pained this summer. Both houses are next door to each other. (I had previously done the house over the road several years ago)
All lovely people, in a lovely quiet corner of the world. The woodwork was all sanded and cleaned with methylated spirit and a fungicidal wash. Then the appropriate Sadolin finish for each house was selected in their colour of choice. The masonry was filled where needed, the edges were all cracking where the masonry meets the wood, so all old filler was taken out where needed and filled again.
They both look great now.
