Finally getting outside and working on siding. It rains for about 3-4 days straight, 2 dry days, then rains again. Very frustrating. But we are working when we can, and working inside when its raining.
I spent a nice sunny day working on the front porch. I decided to use a tongue and groove cedar board for the soffit and cedar decking down below. I wanted a pop of something natural, and love the look of natural cedar next to the black soffit, fascia, windows, and eventually slate tile on the wall. It took most the day to install this with a friend, but it was fine, craftsman type work and we enjoyed it. It makes quite a statement, and I am very happy with how it turned out. I was very surprised with how square everything was in relation to the porch roof, columns, beams and the deck I built...no really, I was very surprised.
