As we put our trim into place, we used clear-drying silicone caulk for all of the seams. We then added a starter pierce of 3/8" wood ripped down from 2x4's at the bottom of the wall right atop the trim pieces. From this we started our siding, which is 6" clear grade bevel cedar siding, and we are SO glad we chose the siding we did because it looks gorgeous! There are a few tricky cuts around the top of the window trim due to the decorative edges we chose, but they've all come out ok so far!
Thank you SO much to Margo's brother Cassius, and our friends Arrie, Cheryl, and Kyle for all of your help today! It was much appreciated! :) Our house could not be so wonderful without you!
We're headed out again tomorrow to get some more siding and trim done. We're loving the exterior finished look so far!!
