Proud to say that we crossed another to-do off the list this weekend! In negotiating my upcoming siding project (!), I knocked a few hundred dollars off the quote by offering to remove shutters, front porch and obstructing light fixtures prior to the crew arriving on site (seriously – do what you can to help out and speed up the crew and it will pay off!). I already wrote about how the front porch came down, and soon I’ll write about my plan to replace it, but in the meantime, I had to keep my promise and finish the rest of the stuff I negotiated. So… I tackled the removal of the shutters that were hung on the front of the house — Here are some before/after shots:
Hard to tell in these photos, but the siding was quite dingy and discolored beneath the shutters – if it wasn’t like that, I would have removed these shutters much sooner! I’m re-invigorated by the clean appearance (I really disliked the cranberry red shutters, although I hope someone else on Craigslist loves them). ;)
More to come, friends.
