    Sorry about the black squares above and below each picture, original pictures were too large to upload so I had to screenshot them. No option to crop once uploaded!

    Anyways, great to get the first exterior out of the way this year. Weather was great, didn't rain once.

    All downpipes came off, windows covered in blue film and masking paper.

    Nice low house to do except for 2 high bits, back gable and side gable above roof, the hoist did it's job!

    New house, I did the inside and outside. All paint used was Fleetwood (Irish brand). It's Sherwin Williams in disguise. Good paint. The outside took over 120 litres.

    Co. Sligo , West of Ireland

    That was a nice little run of work for you then in one place.
    Did you do inside the garage as well? It's a nice size.
    As it goes, the whole property is a fair old size. Would have liked to do that one myself.

    Didn't do inside of garage. It is plastered but it's full of junk from the build so it might get done at a later stage. House itself is 2,900 sq. ft
    Lovely job to work on. No other tradesmen there except for the odd day.

    Nice work there @Irish Painter. Must of been nice to only have to use the bid ladders in a couple of places.
    Lovely looking place and you’ve done it justice :thumbsup:

    Looks like a lot of blue sky in your pictures.

    Strangely enough, yes!! What you can't see in the picture is the bloody wind...
    I was looking for the OFAH clip of Trigger talking about going on his holidays to Ireland but can't find it.

    What sort of cherry picker you have there? @Irish Painter ..there is nothing like access all round the house.

    Sorry Tom, never saw your message. It's a Nifty 170 (17 metres)

    It belongs to the guy I sub for. Handy yoke (at times)

    Just watched some video about it....
    Good stuff that it's trailer mounted...
    I wouldn't feel safe on long reach or anything above 5m up by the look of it....Anyway feck the ladders:doff:

    Safe as houses. I was up full stretch a few times, no bother. Max load of 200kg. Yeah, trailor mounted, handy it can be driven but very heavy pushing about the house in small spaces.. it has its limitations though, but definitely far better, easier and safer than a ladder.
