New Siding Project - Part 11

(If you want to catch up with all my new siding project posts, click HERE.)

Been so busy lately I haven’t had time to get back here and bring you guys up-to-date. Here’s the latest:

  • Four of the new windows have been installed.
  • The new front door and storm door are installed.
  • The rest of the old siding has been removed.
  • All the foamboard instulation is now on.
  • All the house wrap is on.

Here are pics. (Note the caption on each pic.)

Still to come:

  • There are two more new windows to install.
  • Every window in the house (except the new ones of course) need to be removed and flashing installed around them and then put back in. There are seven windows that need flashing.
  • The basement door needs to be installed.
  • The new siding needs to be installed.

So we have a lot more to do, but we’re on the downhill slope. Gerald and Ramona have been working on the house all week. Gerald is Harland’s brother and both he and his wife, Ramona, are carpenters. I’ve been cooking up a storm all week and have really enjoyed having them for lunch and supper each day. Love cooking for company, especially family.

Kitty have grown somewhat used to the noise and chaos. She and Muffin spent most of the week locked in the bedroom so they wouldn’t escape while the door and windows were replaced. Plaintive meows come from the other side of the door occasionally, but they have been sleeping on the bed all day, so it’s not been all bad for them. Thy LOVE LOVE LOVE the new storm door, and spend a lot of time sitting there gazing out on the world. It’s a Big Screen Cat TV.

Harland came down with a cold yesterday so he’s feeling pretty crappy. Hoping it’s not a bad one and will pass quickly.

Stay tuned for more updates…
