Stage 2: Getting stuff done that haven't had the time to do. Get the cars serviced, run tons of errands, actualy get to the gym instead of just thinking about it. And finally, finally, finally having the house powerwashed and painted.
We've always loved the "weathered brick" look, but there was just way too much yellow paint in some areas for our liking. Since the paint on the dormers, window trim, and garage was literally peeling off in chunks, we finally needed to call in the professionals and get this taken care of. The powerwashing did exactly what we wanted it to do.
Much better! The result wasn't as impressive in the back, but I just love Joe Joe's little head sticking up at the bottom of the last picture that I had to post it.
