Primer’d

Suddenly, surely, wonderfully … Emerald Hill is becoming “done.”

All it took was nine hours, a crew of six, sandpaper, ladders, brushes, face masks — a several five-gallon buckets of Sherwin Williams primer and sealer. White.

Ranserve has been working since 1 June toward this day. The painters have taken over the house. The structural wounds are laboriously healed. The plumbing, electrical, HVAC, insulation, windows, framing, drywall are laboriously healed. All that work to save Emerald Hill from itself transforms with the tick of a compressor, the hiss of a hose, the click of a trigger, the stream of paint emerging from the tip of a spray gun.

It is magic.
