Siding Success

Troy promised we would get done the siding today, and we did. (Feel free to cheer--I did.)

As we were beginning:
 Half way there:
We decided to fudge on the lower boards so that they line up with the ones on the west wall. (The north wall is vertical while the west wall has a slope, so they would not match up if we just did the usual 8 inches on each board.) The result is that the lower ones are slightly closer together, but even if you can find it on the picture, I think you'd be hard-pressed to find it in "real life."

We worked until after sunset, (but not after dark) and were back inside in time for me to watch the second half of the [pathetic] Colts game. (Could we have any more starters out injured?)
Troy measuring for the last piece
(Don't let this picture fool you. It was almost dark here, but my steady hand and a half second exposure makes it look like noon!)

So there you have it. Siding on the kitchen done. My part, anyway. Troy has been working on trim and flashing:
But soon we'll be moving to inside work on the kitchen.

We had a little inch worm to help us measure: (Any Anne Murray fans out there?)
