I have read , reread and studied this question for a considerable amount of time today .

I can NOT conceive of any possible way , that anyone ,regardless of how versed one may be in Painting Estimation , could possibly give any type of Ballpark Quess let alone an accurate estimate as to the actual costs for such an endeavour !

# 1 , There is NO linear feet measurements or sizes of any type given for the railings

that needs scraping and eventually Painting .

# 2 , Pool House with 3 colors , contains absolutely NO Sizes , NO measurements of any

type , nor are the differing colors alotted any type of specifications or

measurements of any type for proper determination of any type to determine cut

off points or lines of markation for colors, leaving this matter totally open to

interpretation !

# 3 , NO measurements are established for the size of a Privacy Fence nor for a Trellis .

# 4 , Notation that SOME of the decking needs replacing displays nor prescribes

HOW MUCH Decking needs attending to as well , expecting the Readers to know

What is required size wise.

# 5 , Quality or Brand of Paints have not been specified thereby resulting in massive

waste of valuable time and Valuable Expertise

Seems to me , that some Jokester has thrown out a wish list hoping to get some idea's as to what to attempt to charge for a Job that they have NO IDEA as to what to charge nor what their time is worth , thereby getting someone else to do their Work for them !

Excuse ME , if I fail to play along with such questions !
