This is his view from the workbench area.
And on the left end of the house, you see what is called T-1-11. It can be painted, unlike siding. We are putting T-1-11 up on that end of the house, and under that porch. The rest of the house will be white siding. I know it sounds weird, but our goal is to make it look like a house that was built at one time, then added on, and added on. Like they do with older homes. Plus, it was a way for me to get some color.
