Overlook Project: Siding!
After months spend tearing off Vinyl siding followed by tearing off a layer of stucco, followed by tearing off the dry-rotted wood siding, followed by wall and sill repairs....AT LAST, some siding is on the house! Never mind we are waiting for our new front door and industriall staircase, we are actually able to see what the "New Urbanist" color pallete will look. The colors are actually close to what we originally envisioned, two shades grays, the 'copper color" that will make up the panel systems, a greyed green and of curse the ebony for window and doors.
The great thing about the exterior is it will be minimal maintenance. All the trim work is a recycled PVC material, and of course the siding and panel system is all Hardi which doesn't rot, is insect proof and holds paint well.
So in spite of multiple houses, multiple projects, amazingly we are juggling it all pretty well.
