NEWSLETTER window washing
August 9th, 2021
Good Morning Folks,
This week I’m focusing on having a better view of things. That is because we are in the process of having all the windows washed in this whole house for the first time in probably 30 years. We had a great company, "Clean and Green" do the job. When we bought this house, one of the reasons we fell in love with it was because of the light. It faces East to West so it is getting sun throughout the day but we never realized how much light there was until we had the windows washed! It’s times like this that always remind me of George Formby and his banjo ukulele tune "When I’m Cleaning Windows". Give it a listen and find out about more about the Formby Society at the website "https://www.georgeformby.co.uk/".
Of course as this project unfolds it leads to other issues. There are rotting sills and cracked storms and poorly installed modern storm windows. All this will be meticulously addressed to bring this house back to its former glory. After the windows are washed all of the original shutters will come down and the woodwork will be refreshed in one way or another. The best is yet to come…but I know a guy! We are proud to be custodians once again of a home in an historic district…just wait until Julie and I start attending town meeting and speaking our minds….
Whoops…uncovering more problems….but I know a guy!
