Let The Siding Begin!

December 16, 2013

The day has arrived! After completing our corner, window, wheel, and vent trim, we are ready for siding. Installing siding is like filling in the coloring book picture after diligently tracing the outlines first. It’s very satisfying to see progress like this. Even after the first piece of cedar, the house feels more substantial.

Here is what 3-4 rows looks like! Although we love the ZIP system, we are not unhappy to see it covered up. The work is relatively quick, however trimming the siding to fit around our wheel wells and windows takes some slow, careful work. We have continued to seal horizontal edges (like the trim over the wheels) with silicone caulk to prevent moisture loitering. I think I just invented another expression!

… And here is our east-facing wall 3/4 of the way complete. We love the cedar siding. It is light, durable, and beautiful. Up next we will work our way around the tiny house to button it all the way up… Stay tuned, and thanks for reading!
