Rebuilding after Winter Storms

Mary Jane lives on Rocky Neck Ave and her property sustained a lot of water damage this winter with those huge storm surges that flooded the causeway. I rebuilt her beach ramp and installed some hardware cloth over her crawl space so her basement could vent and dry out.

Black & Blue

I picked up this great Captain's Chair from a friend and painted with Rust Stop "International Blue to give it that high glass look. My grandparent's had a blue chair just like this in their kitchen and I always loved it as a kid. I can't wait for it to dry so I can use it!

Porch Restoration and Painting

John has a lovely fir porch and stairs but it gets a ton of sun which bleaches and dries/weathers the wood. He had applied a deck stain which looked lovely back in the day. The problem with restaining is that, if you have raw exposed wood, it will look very lighter in some areas and overly coated in others. In this case, you have to go with a solid color to even everything out. It took two coats and I'll be back tomorrow to fill in other cracks. It will last him another 3-5 years, after which the porch will need to be sanded down and stained anew- starting the cycle all over again.
