A little forward process. We thought we would mix it up a bit. Menards had cedar shingles for 15 bucks a bundle so we bought a couple bundles to do the gable overhang.

Good decision. The two textures work nice together.  8)

I like cedar shingles too, but with all this vinyl and tar shingles you don't see much used any longer. I think there are original cedar shingles under the aluminum roofing on the main part of the house. My old grainery has cedar shingles, but all but the west side is covered by aluminum siding. The O'Tooles Artisan shop in Grafton uses cedar shingles for roofing and siding, looks good.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

A little progress. Itfinally stopped raining and was about 63 today, so, I used up the last tab of stain in the bucket beofre cold sets in. Stuff was getting pretty thick. Got a few more siding boards on as well.  The plan is to let those dry until spring before staining.

What Jeff is not telling you is he didn't get more done because I chewed his ear off for part of the afternoon.
Sorry Jeff. ;)
Gotta say though, the "dog house" really does look good, and they have all done an excelent job with it!

Chet suggested this weekend that I might want to stain the siding I have up so the red pine does not discolor over the winter.

Probably a good idea , especially if there's some snow up against it.

Thanks Jeff

The Sikkens site does not list a "Natural"  Is it an oil based stain, I would like to find an equilavent here in NZ.  When were were in Canada a few years ago, we saw a lot of garden sheds and the such like that were treated in a similar manner and we think that would be a good seller here, you know, the old value added thing to maximise our returns from our small block of dirt.

Thanks

Ernie

Well, sounds like we were having our last good weather this weekend so we got on the stick and got the rest of the shed sided and stained. We had the back to do which no one will see in summer, but you will be able to see it once the leaves are down.  THe back edge has no overhang so I had to scribe the siding into the natural edge facia board and the caulk. Since I had the jigsaw out, Stacy decided to play with it in between our using it for the shed, hence, the second picture and Stacy's contribution to the final part of the siding, a lttle wooden heart that is inscribed  Built by Jeff, Stacy and Tammy.
