Here I am.

Everything involving our house is still partially done. Don't ask about the kitchen, please. You may get a sock in the jaw.

But I do have news of a (sort of) completed project. This one involving the exterior. For reals, yo.

Our bay window on the east side of the house is part of the staircase that leads to the second floor. The sociopaths who installed the aluminum siding 35+ years ago, decided that it would be a good idea to hack off the lower 2 or 3 courses of rounded cedar shingles, so their crappy siding would affix itself to the house more effectively. I fixed it over the past few days:

This is from a year ago, when we first tore off the siding. You can see the butchery of the shingles on the bay.

Just getting started on Saturday.


End of day, Saturday.

More progress.

End of day, Sunday.

The end. Now I need to repair the rotted clapboards that butt against the bay. In due time...
