Washing The Tower

Since the weather has been unusually warm and fog free over the past few days we’ve taken the opportunity to do some major cleaning work on the inside of the tower.

The tower tends to get very damp since it’s never heated and there are always doors opening to the elements and people constantly coming and going. Needless to say over the years it had accumulated quite a healthy fungus population. So for the past three afternoons we have been very busy with the power washer (well Kristin’s dad’s power washer) and an assortment of mops, brushes, hoses, buckets and the like. I’m pleased to report that it’s now sparkling clean and looking much better.

Now once it dries thoroughly we can start with the painting. Yeah.
