The Good Life

We've been working on some very nice properties in Sarasota over the last two days. A general contractor and friend of mine is doing some renovations to the homes and wanted some cleaning done as well. We wouldn't normally travel that far for residential work, but he's a good friend and compensated us very well for the travel.

We cleaned the driveways and pool decks on these two homes and will be going back for a house wash and roof cleaning on one of them. They're more or less identical with reversed floor plans and minor differences. The small, round window on the second floor of each is the view from the elevator upon arrival to the second floor. The guest suite upstairs also has it's own kitchen and they each have an outdoor kitchen and fireplace. They're 6,000 square feet under roof and the one in this first series of pics is currently on the market for $3.2 million.

These are a few pics of the second property. As you can see, the roof doesn't appear to be dirty. None the less, as previously mentioned, we'll be going back within the next two weeks to clean it and wash the house.

Well, where I'm getting ready to move in Texas the tax bill would be closer to $90K+.
That's the one bad thing about Austin. The taxes are CRAZY.

We went back today to do the house wash and roof cleaning. I took Chris Cole from Atlas Exteriors with me to help out. Nothing like driving over 2 hours to a job and getting caught up in a rain delay for over an hour before we could start. It eventually passed and we got it done though. It must be nice to have 6,000 square feet of roof cleaned when 90% doesn't need it.

Here are a few more pics from the job.

nice

We did a roof yesterday and it was sooooo humid that I couldn't wear the respirator. I wasn't getting enough air.
The ol Ticker was screaming. I had to go for the sore throat and oxygen.

That house is intense. Don, what do you think that bad boy is worth? Every bit of $10M-$12M up here if it has even one acre.

It's a PVC wand being used most often with either a #6530 or #0030 shooter tip.

Tile can be extremely slippery depending on how dirty it is or if it has a glazed finish. Needless to say, it's very slippery when wet too but we always stand in the dry areas only.

Sodium hypochlorite is our chem of choice.

Hi Ken,

As mentioned in the first post, it's on the market for $3.2 million. The two homes pictured are more or less identical with slight differences and reversed floor plans.
