Masking and Painting The House ๐ŸŽจ

By: Lee LeFever

I write books and run a company called Common Craft. I recently moved from Seattle to a rural island. Here, I write about online business, book publishing, modern home construction, and occasionally, dumb jokes.

The post below was sent as an issue of my newsletter, Ready for Rain.


Lately we’ve been busy preparing the house for paint, which is most a project of masking.

Next Tuesday is Election Day and I wouldnโ€™t want to distract you from voting. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Ready for Rain will arrive again the following week. Until thenโ€ฆ
