You can tell this is going to be good, right? Exterior Trim. Ugh, just typing those words makes me angry. I never thought that something could be so deceiving: it seemed so easy and simple and quick, and yet it was the longest and most irritating and the worst. The worst, I tell you!!!
About 10 years ago, Eric and I began staining wood for our trim…. Just kidding, it was only 4
years ago months ago, but you get the idea. Way back in April, Eric and I decided it was time to tackle the trim around the windows, the door, the metal siding, and all the edges of the tiny house. How hard could it be? Slap some stain on a 1×4 and screw it down. No. No no no. No no no no no no. No. Little did we know, we were about to embark on a four month long journey of misery and headache. Now, because this project took 4 months to complete, and I don’t want to think about trim ever again in my life, I’m going to try to make this post as compressed as possible, while still giving you a glimpse of this torturous process. Be thankful you’re only reading about it and not living it.
