We’ve been pretty lucky this last month or so with the weather.  All of the tradesmen have been working on the inside forcing us to be outside installing the siding.  Except for a few ridicuously cold and gusty days after after the new year, the gods have been smiling on us.

We have worked our way around the whole house installing almost all the hardiepanel siding.  We went with the prepainted variety this time around mainly because we didn’t want cold weather to halt the painting process.  We also had our friends at Martin Roofing bend up a whole slew of specialty siding joints and flashing out of aluminum, which we prepainted prior to installing.

These last few days, we’ve rolled onto installing the galvalume metal roof that wraps down part of the backside.  We’re hoping to have our cypress siding in the next week to complete the outside soon.
