The other weekend when I went to my sister's, I saw their house is being repainted on the exterior. She said that the work is on a contract basis so she wouldn't care about the daily wage and also the food is not included in the arrangement. Now this makes me think because the exterior of our house is still the same when we acquired this in 2001. The color is plain white. How about putting in some colors? Talking to my husband about it, the problems cropped up - trustworthy worker, tools like scaffolding, cost, etc. I understand that it is so difficult to find a trustworthy worker, that means someone who knows the job and who would do the job properly. With the tools, we probably need to rent or maybe get some bamboo poles from the nearby bamboo grove to save on costs. Welll, so many details to sort. I will post an update on this.
