Last week our washer quit and we had to have a repair man come out and fix it. While there he mentioned he was also a general contractor so we had him look at the side of the house and give us an estimate for replacing the masonite siding that has needed done for some time now. He did and we were not impressed at all with his figure since we were furnishing the material. Mom dwelled on it for a week and decided we could do it ourselves.
before starting with scaffolding
we dug right in and started ripping off the old, Alan came to investigate and see what we were up to and stayed to help
we dug out the tarp and covered up the house just in case of rain, we did manage to get 2 brief showers out of the clouds and by then the mood to work was gone
Day 2 - we put up the new siding before tearing out any more of the old -- thank goodness it was still good and we had enough. We have had it stored in our shed for the past 10 years.
sun came out just as we finished cleaning everything up -- now to paint
