About This GalleryThis one was special. I became caretaker of the house and part of the family with the primary goal of helping keep "mom" in the house for the rest of her life. She passed away Sept, '05 after 60+ years in her home. As for the painting.... There is no good paint job without the preparation. Washed to remove algae, mold and mildew then scraped to remove loose and peeling paint with the goal of removing what paint was already coming off and what paint was thinking of coming off in the future.
