A House - Update XXX - External Siding - Update II

With the upper north siding of the house complete, in between other house projects, like the ceiling and wood-burning stove, I started working on the upper east side siding. Once again, I'm using cedar fence slats, which are relatively inexpensive, and ideally hearty, not requiring paint (although we're putting wood protector on), fastening them with tan 2 1/2 inch deck screws.

Sue helped me put up the tar paper:

And here are some of the window frames in place:

Our cat, William, scales the ladder at will, and often joins me on the porch roof:

Here's the siding about half way up:

And almost done:

And then complete!

With the full view here, and the last of the caulking still fresh:

We thank the Lord once again for providing the resources to keep working on the house! Upper south side is next, which if God wills, I hope to have done before spring rains.

Well thank you, Ellen!

We're thankful to the Lord for the provisions, and I'm just glad it seems to actually be working. Often I have an idea but don't know if it'll work, or sometimes it's based on just enough knowledge to make a bad idea seem like a good one at the time. :) But, we also ask God for help and direction.

Thanks for saying hello!
