siding progress

19 Oct

I just wanted to post a quick couple of Iphone pics of the siding progress! It’s been in the works for a little over a week now. So far they have put up scaffolding type access for the sides of the house, ripped off the gutters and all of the old trim, laid the paper, and started installing the new siding and trim. They are actually laying the new siding over the old siding – which seems odd but it will make for another layer or protection and insulation. They started installing the siding (hardi smooth and I believe the planks are 12″) on Monday…it’s very exciting to see it going up. Everything looks so fresh and new already. I absolutely can’t wait for the part when they paint!

Oh, and also they are wrapping the old rough cedar breams with smooth hardi as well which is going to really modernize the look – those beams add so much architectural interest and this will only serve to complete the look!

    It’s looking better already! How exciting. That’s really interesting that they’re installing over the old stuff–learn something new every day. :)

      I know – I was kind of skeptical about that at first (installing over the old) but when they explained the benefits I was all in!

        Oh, and I will say I think that sort of thing can only be done when you have the kind of flat large board siding like we did…I don’t think you could install plank siding over old plank siding. I could be wrong, that’s my guess!
