      Fingers crossed that it isn't lead.... that would suck.

    All the houses on Sandy Hook were lead based. At that time, all you had to do was bag the chips. They went to the regular land fill. Can't say today. Would only remove what as not solid on the wood and prime the bare wood and finish coat over the rest. Back when nobody cared about lead, I removed the paint on 4 different houses with a torch. The first was with the old white gas type. I was always scared of it because they blew up regularly. the last 3 were with propane. The Ones on Sandy Hook were done by a subcontractor who started out using paint remover to comply with the Histerical and Gov regs. They took 3 months using the remover before switching to a torch. 2 weeks later they finished the 2 remaining houses. They started with 5. I looked the other way because I didn't want to have to lie on how they got done so fast.

        Yep, gotta agree there... some things are better left unsaid.

      Me too! You don't want the hassle if they want it removed and now they just might!

        I'm not sure that Cypress will hold paint for any length of time. It is a very waxy wood, and I don't think that it will rot. Maybe a linseed oil-based paint.
