6/6/09 – Siding!

The siding started going up today! Wow, it’s looking good. Everything is straight and joints are well done. Very little caulking will be necessary to conceal gaps. I’m impressed so far.

Interestingly enough, apparently the tar paper has a 30 minute fire rating. Who knew?

The ledger for the porch was installed and looks very good! The detailing is impressive.

Notice on the back the large band above where the siding stops. That’s known as a “Belly Band”. It gives a visual break between floors. I felt this was important given the height of the house and it’s location on a high perch above the street.

Also, materials are appearing for the gables (a simple, yet elegant design that we saw on another house – more to come when that starts to appear!).
