|This is how the house looked in my last bedroom remodel post.|
Once Dan got the new bedroom windows installed, he was anxious to cover and trim out the exterior to protect everything from rain. Happily, he had several rain-free days at home to do the job.

It is in fair shape (here at least) and makes a good base to nail to.

Dan is going to continue to the corner on the left and probably one more panel to the right. The horizontal white trim between the bathroom and bedroom windows covers the seam because one 8-foot panel can't cover the height of the wall. That trim will continue on both sides.
We chose the color scheme quite awhile ago - Choosing A House Color Scheme
We actually started with the new siding and paint when we put in a new kitchen window - Um, Replacing The Kitchen Window Means We Have To Paint The House. Right?
We're really happy with how it's turning out. It would be great to be able to finish out this entire side of the house, but that would mean replacing the front bedroom windows, which will have to wait. I can only have one room torn up and in total chaos at a time! Maybe this winter we can get to that.
