Stripping on the Pole
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!

Yeah. Left side. Paint. Right side. Stucco-ish stuff. Oh the craftsmanship.
