I have had an endless list of chores to tackle this past week. It started with throwing a new coat of paint on the outside of our house. When I painted it 10 years ago, I opted to buy cheap paint without considering the longevity. It looks so terrible from the road that you can see the seasoned paint showing underneath the layer of white I poorly painted. It took multiple afternoons of constant back breaking toil to finish the entire project. My next task was removing all of our area carpets as well as cleaning them in the backyard. I put them over our fence, vacuum out all of the dust as well as dirt, as well as then I blast them with our power washer. It takes a few hours in the sun to get them to dry fully, so I always make sure to start the chore as early in the day as I can reasonably manage. Once that was finished, I then had one final chore to complete. All of the sinks, showers as well as window sills in our lake house needed to be resealed with silicone caulk. It’s not the hardest task in the world, but it’s time consuming as well as takes a degree of patience that not all possess. On top of the toil involved—all of crouching, awkward bending, as well as fitting into slim spaces—you must provide it numerous hours before putting on additional coats. Sporadically you are fortunate as well as it only takes one, other times you have to add numerous or four. This makes the whole process harshly time consuming. To speed things up, I always make sure to turn our A/C to a low temperature to accomplish multiple tasks at once. It keeps a strong air circulation in the lake house while the A/C also naturally pulls moisture from the air. When your lake house is below 50% humidity, it harshly cuts into the time it takes for most caulk to fully dry. It might be the best way to dry out your indoor air without outright using a dehumidifier of some sort congested into a normal wall outlet. Sporadically your heating as well as cooling plan can be used for untraditional tasks.
