The kid and I went to town, tearing of 3 layers of siding. Vinyl, pressboard, and finally shingle. Once we got down to the wood, I was very discouraged to find quite a bit of rot. It is all dry and looks like it has been there for a very long time. But all of it will have to be replaced.
The only major projects on this house are this siding project and a new roof. Two major projects. It will be so nice when these are done!!
Summer project number one is complete though. Last year, the kid and I built this cool clubhouse, but ran out of time, and put a simple flat roof on it, plywood covered with plastic. It was pretty lame and leaked, so last week, we got a nice metal roof on it, and gave a little more light and room inside. He is pretty excited about it.
The project went pretty smoothly and turned out really cool.
