Well folks, the aluminum awnings have officially been removed from my house. While my front yard clearly looks like it is under construction, I am so excited to no longer have the aluminum eyesores attached to my cape cod.
It was a more difficult task than I had anticipated. This of course is what my dad had been trying to tell me all along. I cannot take any credit for the labor that went into the removal.
In fact, I will admit that my sole job here was to nag. I am so grateful to have these competent people in my life. Many bolts had to be loosened, metal hammered, and objects/people propped up.
The neighbors were nice enough to come over and assist in the carrying of the giant fixture. The house might look bare now to some (and definitely could use a good scrub down), but with the renovations that are to come, you will see that this house is shaping up. 🙂
