As usual, Monday is for cleaning up after the weekend. The laundry is almost done and the bathrooms are clean, so I decided to take a break.
I just realized that I have never shown you just how awful the calendar wood siding looks when it is first applied. I also never showed you them method to my madness....
You know by now that I take the easy way when I can. That goes for putting on siding too.
I do the same thing with this that I do with the wood blind slats for floors. I put stripes of glue on the surface that I want to cover with siding and then just lay the strips, in this case, side by side on the prepared surface. I lay on three or more strips and trim them with scissors as I go.
I have a pair of Fiskars that are used for cutting wood and believe it or not, they seem to stay sharp. Once in a while I run a Fiskars sharpener over the blades, but not very often.
Paint covers a multitude of sins and corner molding does the rest.
I finished all of the siding this morning. Now I get to do the fun stuff.
Oh, one last thing. I have used the calendars for clapboard siding a number of times on 1/2" buildings. It works quite well for that.
Tessie refuses to help with the real world jobs. I am on my own. I don't think it is really fair. I help with hers!
I guess I will go back to the big stuff all by myself for now. Bah Humbug!
See you tomorrow.
