Brushing the house
I spent Friday scrubbing the front of the house to see if I could remove the black splotches that have grown over the years. I brought along a few deck brushes from Lowe's and found the stiffest one did the trick perfectly.
It was straightforward work, although the iron oxide dust that was kicked up wasn't pleasant. Sooz made me wear a face mask, which surprisingly, I had in the shed.
Along the way, I took few photos of the progress and assembled them into a little time-lapse video above. More photos are on my Flickr page, of course.
