The consensus seems to be that perfect progressive sentences can't be stated in the passive voice, but could someone tell me what this would be classified as:
Present perfect progressive:
I have been painting the house.
Having been painted, the house was ready to live in.
No real need for this beyond idle curiosity. Thanks!
