[MENTION=7230]c_wininger[/MENTION] The older houses have their charm. I love how well made the old windows are. They also used old growth timber for those old houses. 500 year old trees cured to perfection lol I love the thick wainscoting, the crown moulding, hidden little nooks and crannies. I ususally don't make as much per hour cleanin the older houses, but I definitely have fun admiring the craftsmanship.
The newer houses with big glass are cool too, if the house has a decent view. The contemporary houses I used to clean in the Seattle area were pretty cool. 360 views of wooods and mountains is pretty relaxing.
My humble dwelling has beautiful 8 over 8 true divided windows for most of the house except the front room addition which has horrible little vinyl windows. My goal is to find a bunch of matching old true divided windows from craigslist and store them in my basement. Then when I get 2 weeks off I will take out the vinyl and frame in the old beauties. It's not that tough to reglaze old windows, it's just time consuming and expensive if you are paying someone else to do it.
That's an interesting thread idea, though: old houses (properly maintained) vs. modern houses.... which would you prefer to clean the windows for?
I like the classically styled houses that you clean in your area, Caleb. New construction, but borrowing from classic design.
