We are currently painting our house – everything is away as we are doing walls, ceilings, doors and skirtings. Luckily our family is happy to enjoy the holiday camp out with no tv and limited kitchen supplies. It wouldn’t have been our first pick of a great family holiday, but is turning out to be fantastic – and we will have a fresh house too!!

  • What a great idea. You’ve certainly made the best of an otherwise disruptive situation.


  • its good that you have turned it into something fun!


  • Better to do it now than when everyone has to be at school or work.

    • yeah good point. get organised for the year before it is too hectic.


  • Yeah it’s great when you can get it done and stay in backyard. We desperately need to paint whole house but with the kids and sooo much stuff it’s so hard.


  • lol yeah, i am glad that you are enjoying this “break”! it is certainly cheaper than staying at a motel! the backyard is not bad! hope you are happy with the paint job :)


  • A great project to do during summer. Your house will look amazing at the end!! Enjoy!!


  • We have done this a number of times and love it! Feels like a bit like of a mini break after all of the hard work of painting during the day!
