Coming Along

This past week work was started on our house. In the end we'll have new siding, fascia, soffit (sp?), and several new doors. Although the price seems daunting it's something that needs to be done. The cedar shingle siding couldn't take much more abuse from the weather without starting to have issues, and hopefully it will help a bit with energy savings. We're not expecting to save a ton, but any little bit helps. The siding itself has insulation but we unexpectedly had to get additional insulation underneath the siding to even out the shingles. The workers were told the shingles were much thinner but when they arrived they found differently, making the change to the work order. Thankfully we don't have to pay any additional. The workers are coming along quite fast....This is the most recent picture I have, however, the siding on the outside of the porch is also done at this time.....
