I was finally able to work on the house last week. I put in a full weeks work and will do the same this coming week, weather permitting. The siding is going up and I am starting to see what it’s going to look like. I hope to have all of the exterior siding done as well as the roof by the end of the week, but I’m thinking that might be just a bit much, especially since we have rain predicted. I have a tendency to set lofty goals which often leads to disappointment, but when I aim low it’s easy not to overshoot.
Here is my homemade tool (wood platform on an extendable paint pole) for installing siding by myself. It’s not very sophisticated but works like a charm. When you’re by yourself you sometimes have to get creative :)
As I have said before I’ve been recording this entire build so I’m going a lot slower than I would like. But I think I’ve got between 4 to 6 weeks left. Then I’ll put out an updated version of the plans and list the house for sale.
I’ll have an update at the end of the week with a lot more pictures and maybe even a video.
