And there is so much left to do that motivation is important.
The last blog post left with me fixing a previous mistake. I had put the siding on wrong on the back side of the house so I pulled it off and re-hung it.
Well, I had to go back to the regular job and didn't have much time to finish.
|The first thing that had to happen was furring strips.|
|At the end of the day, I nearly finished.|
|There were just these little corners left.|
I didn't care. It was raining on me most of the day so I had to take the siding panels inside to measure and cut. My time was very limited. Sacrifices were made.
But the next day....
|All the siding on!|
Now we just have to paint it. Oh yeah, and trim. Don't forget skirting of some sort before it really gets cold.
Yeah, there's plenty to do, but I am going to let this one feel good for a minute. Heck, we even took most of one day off.
Then, it was back to work.
|With so much done, we are changing the name of the house|
|From Big Stinky, to Daisy.|
|Famous from the election ad of the same name.|
So, we passed a milestone. It's awesome.
There is still a ton of work to do, but I think this is proof that we are at least mostly up to the challenge.
