Build journal – It’s a pass!

The garage passed the inspection – WOOT! Now it’s full steam ahead with installing the trim and siding. We’re going for minimal maintenance, so all the trim is all PVC and the siding is cedar shingles.

I’m not entirely sure why we put up the scaffolding first, seeing as we have to work from the ground up. But here it is 25, feet of scaffolding going up…

Brian added some detail to the corner trim to give it some interest. The holes will be filled with little plugs.

Brian made the window trim too so we could have the exact design we wanted.

We selected 2nd clear shingles, which have some knots. First row of cedar shingle. The knots add some character and interest. First row of cedar shingles in progress…

And the second row, which pretty much covered up the entire first row!
