Siding Begins

While the HVAC and electrical crews continued to work inside the nice spring weather has allowed us to turn our attentions to the outside. Earlier in the week we peeled back some dirt and tackled the fun and slimy task of adding some additional waterproofing as we decided we needed to go higher with the dirt level on the north and east sides of the building.  Some work with the tractor and more dirt was added and the level has been raised.

The weekend brought the start of siding. We are using James Hardie cement board as we have on the house. We started on the east side of the kick out and used some leftover product from the house - they were a bit dirty that is why you see the odd colors. The angles are always a challenge and adding to the fun is that we are trying to make sure the laps line up with those on the house. We finished that side and turned the corner and just got started on the north side of the main building with new product. It is primed with a light green color which is a bit more pleasant to look at as it almost appears finished. 

A lot of siding to go!  The final pictures are the beautiful moon and sunset from Friday night March 18th.
