Anyway, they're starting the process next Monday the 18th by power washing the entire house. Then they scrape, sand, caulk, prime and paint. I'll post pictures as we go so you can share in the progress.
After it's done and I recover financially, I'm going to put a cover on my deck - one of those clear ones so I can still see the sky. I really love looking at the rain! That's another reason to cover the deck - otherwise I'll never be able to sit out there!
