Chez Paul needs a face lift

time for a facelift

Home improvement time again

Chez Paul's exterior has gotten to the point where it needs a bit of work (and don't all our exteriors?). It is starting to look a little scruffy.

When I moved in I gave all my attention to the interior, but the outside can't be ignored any longer. There is just too much flaking and peeling paint, too many spots of crumbling stucco.

The painters are scheduled to come next week to give it a patch and paint job.

Here are a few "before" pictures.
