Well I may be jumping the gun a little but I got my first load of 1×8 rough sawn SYP siding and the 1×3 batten strips so just had to see what it was going to look like. I ordered the Ondura roofing material so I got time to do other things until it comes in.The front porch PT is done so lets do the siding.

Me and son #2 working on the rear roof supports

The Ondura roofing finally came in so that takes priority now. I chose this roofing material over a metal roof mainly because of the oak trees with the huge acorns that would jump the hell out of me on a metal roof.

Roof is done

Back to the siding—getting tricky now!

Well I have made and installed all of the windows and doors and this is the last piece of siding to complete the dry-in.

Time to work on the inside

Looks like an awesome project. Nice to be tucked away in the woods as well. Moved from Michigan to Arizona and miss the tall trees. Love to see the inside when your finished.
