The windows were compromised, when the weight lines were cut to add insulation to the weight cavities.
The best discovery was seeing that the decorative column bases were still there!
Under the green indoor/outdoor carpet and layer of thick plywood was the original tongue and groove wood floor.
The view from the side door is messy. I enjoy seeing it like this more than covered in plastic siding as before.
I started by removing rotted pieces and nailing back loose ones
The i puttied all nail holes and cracks....molding and sanding as i went
I sat on that paint can in front of this piece of lattice for a whole day
I was very meticulous about getting all old paint off..
We found traces of dark green paint on these
Here it is after the first coat of paint.....Beautiful
scroll back up if you cant believe what it used to look like.....I have to keep reminding myself!
Meanwhile Dave was working on the siding
Scraping, caulking, and sanding as he moved along
He stood on that ladder long than i was sitting on that paint can!
and Luna stayed right by him all day
If I close one eye and concentrate real hard i can see the whole houses being done!
