Desirae's new house.....sort of

 Desirae was ready to redo the siding on her house, so for a couple of weekends we spent time at her house, helping strip the old siding, and then insulating the house, and putting on the new siding. 

 Here are some before pictures


The tear down begins....notice the carport and the basketball hoop...those two would be losing their "life"

Joslyn helped by watching from the front window....

Under the old siding was the original wood shake shingle siding...we left that and insulated over the top.  Here, Doug is getting ready to take down the porch overhang, which he rebuilt as you will see below.



Hard to see here, but there is the new porch over going up...and on the lower left of the house, you see the pink insulation going up.  


Doug is doing the welding on the iron for the porch.  


Beginning to tear down the carport....

Car port is no more.....

 So the house is insulated and now we began wrapping it...


And the new siding is starting to go up....it is a similar color as before, but looks so much nicer...


The finished product....looks great right?  Desirae still needs to paint the new porch cover, but how great does the house look :-)
