Home Building: Siding

Well, our siding is coming along. Thought I'd just share a few pictures. After all it is consuming our lives at the moment. I was thinking this morning as I realized I was almost out of bread that I'd love to just make a loaf. I have the ingredients. I just don't have the time. This is the back of the house. The portion at the top that is not sided will have Cedar Shakes. We haven't completely decided how we'll wrap the posts. The porch will be stained concrete. It'll look so cool.
This is the garage side...where eventually in the next phase there will be garage doors. There will be cedar shakes at the top of this portion too.
So that's where we're at and that's what we've been doing. Yesterday I helped hubby move put up some pieces of the batten board...that stuff is heavy! Then I sanded and stained some more pine for the underside of the soffit. Today I hope to prime my utility room and put another one or two coats of stain on the pine boards.
It's crunch time and so we will be very busy getting things done around there. Can't wait to keep sharing the process.
With Joy UNquenchable,
