Fascia paint, and paper updates

If you've been following the updated pages on my RGS site, you may have noticed that the RGS Paper page has been vastly updated - thanks to Ted Klaveren and his son's scanning abilities, that page now sports a large assortment of paperwork from the RGS.

At home, I found time to prime and get the first couple of coats of paint on the fascia. I'm using a Behr semi-gloss in 'Windsor Moor', which is a dark green. I haven't done a lot of house painting, and I've especially not used semi-gloss much. The primer went on easily, but the first and second coat of the main color were more work, and even w/ the second coat it's not completely covering. I'll try to get a third coat on this week. Also, why hasn't anyone invented disposable rollers yet? Man, I hate trying to clean those buggers!

  1. Stop using BEHR paint and your results will be far better!

  2. Actually, after the 2nd coat, I'm very pleased w/ the BEHR paint - nice solid color, and the semi-gloss is really tough, which is just what I wanted for high-wear surface like the fascia.
