How Ex-Siding!!!

Get it...ex-siding...exciting...  

You guessed it, we spent Sunday gettin' our siding on!  Of course like any home improvement project, 10 other projects had to be done first in order to do said project.  In preparation for siding we had to finish the front soffit.

Then we had to put 1x4 vertical trim on the front corners to cover the seams where the building was cut into pieces in order to move them.

Then the peak needed trim...

And FINALLY we could start with siding!!  Cement board siding is easy to work with if you have the right tools.  We rented a roofing nailer from ABC Rentals for $25 for two days and borrowed a side grinder from our neighbor to cut it.

I did the cutting while Brent tacked the siding up.  The whole front of the building only took about an hour and a half.

Halfway up, we set up some scaffolding to make it easier to reach the top.

And before we knew it, we were done!

The soffit looks even more amazing with the siding and trim.

By this point we were beyond exhausted so we called it a day at 2pm and took the kids to the park to play football.  Correction...Brent played football with them.  I fell asleep watching them while sitting in my comfy camping chair.  Hope I wasn't open mouth sleeping in front of the general public at the park!
