This year we took the shutters off too, they will be getting a facelift, and we think it was the first time they've been off the house since it was built.
This is at the end of the house - the grossness is from behind the shutters.

We labeled all the shutters on the back of each shutter.
The head of the screw is the color we suspect the shutters were originally.
These delightful things were behind some of the shutters.
Sarah, Kyle and I had the charge of cleaning the shutters.
We found that there were quite a few spiders who had made their homes behind the shutters.
Including this ugly guy…
Rachel removed shutters…Do you see the fence? Peeling paint,
These panels of picket fencing, were from a neighbor of a friend of ours. We got them when they were tearing out the fencing, to put something else in. I've had them at least 7 years in my garden, so they are old. We are talking about what to do exactly. I love my picket fence so we MUST fix it.
I'll post photos when I'm done with the shutters. We are hoping to re-side the house, but that is another project for another time.
Any projects on your horizon?
