I believe that was done in a circular motion... three circles outward with the left, three circles outward with the right. Three circles outward with the left... and then you can wax all the cars in the lot
I'm on the condo board with a guy who has all the tools. When I told him about my project, he told me to take his power washer and orbital sander to make the job easier. I agreed. I was able to clean my Ducane and Weber. Blasted a year's worth of crud off them.

I was not looking forward to the manual "wax on, wax off" routine. If only he had a spray painter...

Are you painting or staining? Those pump up sprayers work very well for staining a deck. Just cover up any foliage you might get overspray on.

Thanks for the thought. I was given a solid stain - water based and a 2.5" brush. Since it's not a big deck, It won't take long by hand.

It's your call. Spraying a deck is the cat's butt. No knee time. Just walk and spray.

I know myself well enough that I'll end up painting everything in the zip code along with the floor.

Before Himself was laid off I always had a friend over for coffee/tea and nibbles when I had a repair or maintenance appointment scheduled. The harassment thing can happen both ways. Buddy System, just like in Girl Scouts. I was a leader...old habits don't die hard, they just don't die at all.

Our Property Management company didn't understand why I didn't want anyone in my apartment fixing things without me being awake...umm...can I come to your house at 2 am and play around the house? Took me a while to convince them that there were a few days a week they were not welcome to wander in, those were the nights I had to work and HAD to sleep so I could function. This, of course, when I was working night shift.

Our lease says if we fail to answer, they have the right to enter to make any repairs. But they do prefer that we be present. One time they did this and found me sleeping. They were gracious enough to wake me up before they proceeded. I think they were really trying to determine if I was dead or alive. Wouldn't be the first time they found a dead one.
