November 2, 2007 – The Next Project

Because I just don’t have enough things going on at once, I’ve started to side the last remaining unsided part of the corn crib.  In truth, certain projects lend themselves to different weather.  This is something that is slated to be completed before winter.  It’s a good project to do on a day with no wind or a west or northwest wind.


I was just commenting out loud the other day that this place would not be good for a person that had to complete a job before moving onto the next project, or one that couldn’t let an unfinished project sit without finishing it. The good news is no matter what the weather, there is something that needs to be done.

So, the plan here is to complete the siding the same arrangement as the first two pieces and on the upper part of the building that isn’t covered by the red siding, to rip out every other board and I’m going to try the clear panels to let light into the building without having to run lights or put in windows, since this building is meant for storage of lumber, etc and the windows will be a liability.

You can also spot another water storage tank that hasn’t been blogged yet. It’s getting close to the time of year to drain them for the winter – this one will need to be drained and moved to get the siding up – another reason this is the best time of year for this project.
