|North side of the house - Hanging on for dear life!|
|Six long years of gunk in the gutters.|
|This is going to take some work to get done.|
|With the gutters cleaned, I moved on with washing the exterior of the eaves, soffits and house walls.|
|It is much easier to access the second story on this house than our previous home.|
Yesterday was a day off from house washing to visit the dentist for the first 90 minute job to prepare a tooth for a permanent crown. Gosh....that's more taxing for me than spending an entire day washing the house. By the time I was done with the dentist, running several errands, looking at re-registering one of our vehicles, it was time to watch the NHL Vancouver Canuckians get seriously beat by the Chicago Blackhawks. What an awful game to watch. It was excruciatingly painful. Washing the house is less painful.....! http://canucks.nhl.com/
With just a bit of a sore jaw and arms somewhat healed from the first day of house washing, today was the day to complete the task.
|Set myself up to wash the 2nd story front and west side.|
|Ugly gunk that could only be removed by hand. Yuk!!!|
|Offering to change places with the official photographer. Imagine my shock when she came out to ask if my life insurance policy was up to date. Can you fathom that? Unbelievable! Then she took this photo.|
|I heard a comment from the peanut gallery (aka...photographer) about sitting down on the job!!! Aarrgh!!!|
|Now to the west side gutter cleaning. Will this ever end???|
|The west side is all I have left to complete.|
|Almost ready to get off the roof and wash the first level vinyl siding.|
|Finally completed the work on the second story. Now on terra firma!|
Seriously though, the task of removing gutter gunk, washing, scrubbing and rinsing the entire house took 12 hours, over a two day period. Cleaning the house on an annual basis will be much easier and certainly much quicker from now on. Yippee for that.
|Parked the dually and the Nissan trucks in their rightful places.|
|One more shot.|
