    Siding in-progress...

    Classes will recommence Wednesday and there is plenty of siding work left to complete. This photo is a nice example of how the final facade will look, but there is nearly 80% of the work left to do! The wood is an Atlantic White Cedar (naturally rot resistant and a regional species) with a bleaching oil finish. Let's hope for warmer weather so we can get outside and finish!



      the variegated bottom of the siding - intentional? or is someone coming by w/ a line and japanese saw to cut a flush finish?

      Not intentional at all, but we are all very fond of it actually. Simply the product of starting each board from the from the top and working down. At the moment we are still planning to flush it out in the coming month, but are certainly entertaining the idea of leaving it.
