Closing in on it (the siding)

It has been a few years since the siding was started, and I finally dug out the remaining pile from storage. With the help of Lauren and my friend Corwin, some progress has been made. Just as I started to get into a rhythm though, we reached the midpoint of the diamond shaped window which will be getting a (not yet made) copper frame. Siding a house often requires lots of finicky detailed work, then quite a bit of straight forward work before the next obstacle. On a house this size though, one doesn't often get that break of the easy work... At least it is fun.

My goal is to finish the siding and trim ASAP so that I can get a couple of coats of real paint on the house soon. Next in line would be the roof and skylights.

The end of the safe, mini safe inside

...but still no valuables other than the money for scrap.
