Exterior work continues...started fascia and soffit

The rain cut for a few days, so I was able to get outside and get some more work done.  At this point we are about 90% done with the siding.  There is just a bit of the garage peak to go as well as some around the clerestory.  However I wanted to get some soffit up to start to enclose the truss ends to help with the wind and water from the summer storms. 

 The garage trim and soffit installed.

 Shannon got the first coat of the sealer installed on the cedar porch.  I got the soffit up around the garage and in the clerestory, along with some fascia.

 We really need to pour concrete.  you can see what the water has been doing to the grade.  Just as soon as it starts to dry out enough to work dirt, it rains again.  I have been focusing getting the siding and soffit done to get it completely water tight, as well as use it up out of the garage so we can pour the floor.  Hopefully in about a week we can get some concrete down. 


  1. It's a good feeling to see your house come into completion firsthand, right, Jesse? As far as I can see, you have a very wonderful house and I can't wait to see it completed. The color selection for your exterior is very good too! It gives off a stylish aura, and your large windows will contribute in providing you natural lighting inside the house.

  2. The other side of house looks like a garage, and the overall construction looks professionally made. Good luck!
