It hasn't been all trips to and from Home Depot this week. I've been making progress on the siding as the weather permits, and working on the electrical and plumbing when it doesn't. I've got siding on the south wall (with hecka windows) and 3/4ths the east wall (gable end). I'd like to think the north and west walls will go faster, but I know better. They both have round windows in them, and the west wall has gables to match above and below (for the cricket on the existing house). The different color boards are because I painted a few for my test of 1x6+1x10 vs. 1x6+1x12 for the siding. And of course there's still trim around the windows and on the corners to do, but it's looking pretty good so far.
