Workcation - pressure washing

I'm incredibly late getting this up, but better late than never, right?
So for our first week-long vacation together, J and I stayed home and put the money we would have used for a little trip towards our home. There are several things we've been wanting to do since moving, but time, weather and money have held us back.
First up: pressure washing. 
We have siding and it was pretty dirty. As was the sidewalk, etc., seeing as the house is about 10 years old. 
This was a HUGE job for J. We rented the pressure washer on Saturday - the place is closed Sunday so you get two days for the price of one! I ran off to do some preserving and garage saling with my mom on Saturday, while J got to work on the house. 

The back of our house is basically two stories and there was no way J's arms and the little wand would reach all of it, so he rounded up some scaffolding to use on Sunday. It scared the crap out of me, yes. Wouldn't this freak you out?

Luckily he is a monkey man and didn't care.

See all those blocks? Those are in addition to all of the ones below, moved away from the side of the house. I carried all them to the grass so we could wash them off, too. And then we used them in our landscaping --- photos to come soon. What a workout!!!

We never realized how big the house was until it got dark and we still weren't done! And then J ran out of gas so I had to drive into town to get more! Determined to take it back on time the next morning, J worked until after midnight. I should add that we also washed our garage - we did want to get the most bang for our buck!

The result? We loved it! It was a lot of hard work, and next time we'll probably break it up more, but it was well worth the time, effort, and rental fee.
