Unpainting…

on

The guest cottage at High-Water has had a rough life.  After the original owner sold it there have been a string of neglectful tenants.  At some point someone decided that they didn’t like the natural cedar cladding and that green paint would look nicer.  What were they thinking?  

It looks like they made a start but then lost interest and decided the front entry was enough green.
So today I set about rectifying that poor paint decision. 

  
I applied paint stripper to the painted cladding and let it sit for a while.  Then I hit it with the water blaster and fortunately it came off fairly easily.

 
After some more spot treatment and more blasting, it came up pretty well.  There is still a lot to do, but at least I know that it will come off and should take a about a day to finish.
