Siding Project (No More Green) – Weekend 6 Finale!

When I got home from work one day I found that my Dad actually finished about 95% of the side, what a great bonus to come home to!

The only thing left to do on this side was the small section to the left of where the power enters the house, it took us all of about 30 minutes to cut and put this up.



The next time we worked together on this was finishing the front and sides of the second floor.  Unfortunately for us there were a ton of angles to these locations.  You wouldn’t think about all those angles just looking at the house but when you are cutting siding it’s a slow process getting the siding cut just right and staying level at the same time.  Learned a lot about how to transfer angles from 1 piece to another as we used the scrap to get it right before installing.  We even managed to get where the second floor lines up with the first floor (around a corner) looking very good and nearly perfect.


The final outcome:

Siding Project (No More Green) – Weekend 5

The weekend began with beginning and finishing the back side of the house.  Long stretches made for quick results and a fast feeling of accomplishment as the siding went up.  Some long runs and small cuts for different things like power outlets, dryer vents, and even the windows made it a bit difficult getting them in without creasing them.  The staging proved very useful to stay off the side of the house and still have great access to the siding.  When we finished the back it was pretty late and the sun had completely set.  The next day we started to finish the side we began on as we only had about 5 or 6 layers on, right about the top of the window when we stopped working the weekend before.  This side was even easier with the lack of obtrusion and even shorter span that the back.    Completing both sides was fantastic for motivation.  These huge sides completed really gave us the feeling of accomplishment as the front and other side were much smaller sections to be done.  Next task would be working on the RSF (Right side facing) portion of the house.
