Re: Building A House

I appreciate when all sheet material is installed in the correct orientation (no upside-down "Tyvek). Even though no one will see it for a long time, possibly ever.

Thanks for the update, Jere.

Re: Building A House

I am opposed to any pattern on the installation of the siding, regardless of the spacing of the splices. A pattern will always show up when you look at the job from a distance. In our town of 3700 I know of only one house that is sided with "arctic blend" siding. I think it's pretty close to the color you show on the starter strip. (never been a fan of plastic starter strip either) The house in town here always looked terrible to me. To me it looks like the siding is always really dirty. This is just my opinion. It might look great to everyone else. Thanks for the update. Like everyone, I can't wait for the garage floor. Some have mentioned that the haunches may tie the walls together through the concrete floor. I can't see how they will "tie" anything. They may protrude into the floor, but that's it. Thanks again, and keep the pics coming. Greg

Sometimes It's better to keep your mouth shut, and have the world think you a fool, than to speak, and remove all doubt.

BoWoggie,

My siding pattern is an effort to keep the joint separation at a maximum distance from one to another. Any other combination puts the joints closer together IMO.

I too notice siding installs and have seen many that stair step up a wall, joints close together, one even has about one foot between joints, left, right all the way up.

Re: Building A House

On a house that nice, I wouldn't use vinyl siding regardless of how it is installed. Brick would be first choice, however, it is expensive. Hardie board would be my next choice.
