Living at about 4,000' MSL in the high desert means increased UV exposure. UV plays havoc with painted surfaces and over time the buildings at the Painted Pony Resort need new paint especially the woodwork. Several years ago all the woodwork on the buildings required cleaning and re-staining, see this video for a time lapse of cleaning and staining. Well, that time has arrived again and the courtyard of the main house was in need of some attention so back out with the power washer, ladder, and stain. After cleaning all the woodwork a thick coat on new stain was applied bringing new life to faded columns. Of course now that I have done the courtyard woodwork on the rest of the building now needs attention and if one building is done they all need doing. A never ending job.
