We stripped the paint off our 100 year old house and repointed. However, once the paint was removed, we discovered what looks like concrete smeared all over the bricks. Our masons used muric acid and a brush, and tried to power wash the concrete off using a little bit of pressure, but they claim they can’t get the concrete off further. They say that power washing with more pressure will damage the bricks, and sanding the bricks or chiseling the bricks will break them. Read More

Have you heard any news on the 2021 VPP program (Visitor Parking Pass)? I think they usually start registration by now.”
Ed. Note: Been starting to get a few queries about this, I’ve emailed DDOT and will update when I hear back but I assume that because we are still in Phase Two, with most parking restrictions suspended, things have been pushed back. When registration does go live, I’ll be sure to do a new post.
Update From DDOT: “Changes are coming to the Visitor Parking Pass program for 2021! In the meantime, please keep your 2020 pass if you have one.”
Oh, the anticipation.
