The roofing has started. We chose a darker brown archetectural style shingle. Once done, it will look kind of like shake shingles.
The old aluminum siding is coming down. We are finally getting a look at what the original siding looks like. . . it is wide clapboards below the window line and thin above. One small perk of replacing aluminum siding is that you can take it to be recylcled and get a nice little bit of cash for it. On the downside, you find out that when they put it up they totally destroyed the character of your original wood siding and that you will ALWAYS have to have replacement siding because the original wood is seriously chopped up and damaged.
Piles and piles of trash every where.
