Re: Building A House

Just a progress update on the siding, and from a slightly different perspective from further down the property in what will be the front lawn:



A great weather week, and some real exterior progress.

Re: Building A House

I've been away on vacation (Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Targhee National Forest, St Anthony's Sand Dunes) for a while, and assumed there would have been grand progress when I got back. Grand would clearly not be appropriate. Scout and I strolled down this morning and checked in:



Working on the back now:



And just for some proof of my vacation claim:



Awesome vacation.

Re: Building A House

Thanks for the update and it looks like you had a great vacation.

There could be multiple reasons for the slow progress, fewer people are getting into the trades and the good ones can demand premium money or start out on their own. You invest quite a bit training a young carpenter and when you start seeing a return on your time, they want a raise or move on.

Great picture. Blow it up and hang it up in your dining room. Glad you had a nice vacation.

Re: Building A House

I don't see Scout on that rock. Did he have his own? If I were him, and I got left at home I would be really mad. I was wondering what you thought of the siding on the house. Like I have said before, we have one house in town with "blended" siding. To me it looks like regular siding only dirty, and no way to clean it. To each his own I guess.

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

Scout did stay home. Dogs are not welcome outside of campgrounds and parking lots in most National Parks, including Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Probably a wise rule. My son moved back home for the duration and managed the house sitting, and dog hiking. I think Scout had more time on trail than he usually does when I am home, and I know he made it to more pet friendly brew pubs than when I am home.


As far as the siding, I'm not a fan of grays either way, personal preference I know. And, I'm not sure the combination of gray low, off white vertical high, and white trim are as complementary as they looked in the brochure. But to each his/her own. It won't pain me to drive past it after the build, and our regular hikes are completed.
