Bleaching the House...

This is what Joe is doing on this beautiful fall day. He's washing the mildew off the house in preparation for painting another section of the front of the house. He uses a little bit of bleach in water and a lot of elbow grease to do it. Thank goodness our beautiful weather his holding out.
Some day I'd love to take out those alumunium windows and that filler siding on the top of them, and put in screens and tall casement windows like you see on old homes that haven't been stripped of the good stuff. We could just do screens and that would be inexpensive to do, but Joe says those windows help keep our home warmer in the winter. They face south and
the porch does get pretty warm on a sunny day. I think I'll carry my camera out today and see what old porches we have around for inspiration.
