Siding and Paint

Whew! This stuff’s hard! O.k., o.k., I hired someone to repair my siding. I wanted desperately to do it myself, but I want to do everything myself! There’s just not enough time, though. Not yet; not while we’re racing the bank. Once we’re in I’ll be able to get more hands on because I’ll have the luxury of time. I hope.

I did manage to start pulling the bad boards off.


I also found the time earlier in the fall to replace a window (along with a lot of help from Gary.) It was out with the new and in with the old. We needed to move the window anyway to accomodate the new downstairs bathroom, but I managed to find a casement window at a salvage shop that very closely matched some existing attic windows. I was very excited.


Above, you see one of my carpenter’s, Kevin, installing the custom milled replacement siding. Our house has a couple different styles of siding, most of it however is what’s called a “Dolly Varden” style. It’s not very common now so I had to have it milled. I could have used the beveled clapboards that are readily available in mills and lumber yards, but I was concerned it would look more like patches. The finished boards look fantastic with the originals!

We spent a lot of time pre-painting the boards, mostly just the backs, but we did both sides when we had a few days between siding jobs. Below Denise is all dolled up painting her Dolly Varden! Love ya babe!


I did manage to get a coat of paint on before the weather got cold (well it was supposed to get cold.)


Lot’s of windows to mask! Oh my goodness, was there alot of masking. The hardest parts were the arched windows.


It’s all prettied up now! It really looks great with just a clean coat of paint on. I’ll strip it back down in the spring when I have more time to patch holes and set nails. I really want to get a good coat of primer on before I caulk it then paint it again. It’s the right way to get a nice long-lasting finish. I’m sure everyone has their own opinions on that, though!

I can’t wait to get the front porch and shutters back on!

    It’s looking great!

    My 5 year old daughter and I are enjoying seeing the progress. We think of the house everytime we drive through Clarksville and are happy it has a new home.

    BTW, we were reading a picture book recently that very much reminded us of your house. It’s “The Little House” by Virginia Lee Burton, about a house built in the country. Eventually the city grows up around the house and it misses the country. A descent of the original builder then finds the house and moves it to the country again. If you’re not familiar with it, you should look it up.

    Best of luck with your future restoration! We’re especially enjoying seeing the interior architechtural features.
