Old House – New House

Work continues on our house on Grosse Ile.  We decided to reside with cedar shakes rather than continue painting the wood siding a couple years ago, never realizing all the work involved in this project. Along with new Anderson windows, LOVE the Nailite Cedar Shake product! Phil’s been a real trooper with this and actually seems to like the challenge! Finally finished the east side of the house this weekend Whoo! Whoo! Add to the expense,  purchase and put up scaffolding, but when you are doing the job yourself… Of course when it takes a whole day for 3 people (that would be the husband, son & ME) to put a window in, and a whole season (++) to do the siding, I say, “Don’t quit your day job”. Can you imagine, “Hey boss, the crew and I got the job done! It only took…. What do you mean no time and materials?!?!?!” YIKES!



Thinking of adding a faux stone finish on front. What do ya think? Another good change!!
