The wonderful folks who live in this townhouse are customers that date back to my earliest years as a paper hanger/painter. I did extensive work for them in the lovely large house they lived in during their early years and then again many times after they downsized to this townhouse. They were going to the Island for a week and gave us a key to the door. "Strip the paper and repaint the living/dining and then repaint the upstairs bathroom" were their instructions.
The paper and underlying adhesive were very difficult to remove, but in the end, the job turned out well and my customers were delighted. We recruited my nephew Matt from Sorrento for a week and managed to keep him pretty busy with this and other projects.
