Stripping on the Pole

Yeah so i got down to stripping the first pole on the front porch (see, it's not nearly as "Crazy Horse" as you might have thought by the title, dirty-mind) this weekend. I'm psyched by the pile of stucco-paint-child-of-satan shards that litter the porch floor but let me tell you what is not easy. It's this: removing random crap that someone has adhesed to your house. Not easy. See also "not fun."

On the upside, progress is being made and it looks like the posts are redwood. Rock on. In addition to it being cool that my california house is built largely of california redwood, i get a money-saving bonus. We have leftover redwood that can be used to creat the new moulding. A penny saved is a penny that can to go my nailgun fund my friends!

Now just have a look at this ridiculousness. No really. I need you to see this and ask yourself "wtf?!" in the same way i do.
Yeah. Left side. Paint. Right side. Stucco-ish stuff. Oh the craftsmanship.
