Lest you think I’m the only one that’s been KIND OF a mess this year…
Our deck at 3675 was HELLA gross.
And no, I haven’t given up on my list of to-dos for this old house. Despite being sick, and dealing with two grandparent deaths in one month, I’m STILL GETTING EVERYTHING DONE.
I feel a little bit like I’m about to have a nervous breakdown, but the s#!%’s getting crossed off the list.
Check out the crap they sanded off our deck, after just four years!
Luckily, they DID clean it up, and they did a decently-decent job. I give them a solid B on the Lisa Wisniewski cleanliness scale, which everyone knows is like a normal human’s A+.
(I cleaned everything again myself a couple days later, including scrubbing the black streaks off the underside of the deck where the power washing flushed moldy scuzz through all the cracks; some things are SO GROSS THEY’RE AMAZING.)
Oh, and by “they”, I guess I should be clear that we determined the deck was definitely a “contractor job” this year. After four consecutive summers of tackling it on his own, Trent and I agreed he has graduated from ever having to sand or stain again.
Anyway, the moral here is Team Temple is still crushin’ the project list at 3675, whether we bring in outside help or not…
Ready for Summer #5!!!
