Can a city boy build his dream homestead on a mountain, by himself and with no mortgage?

SmartSide on the side…

a wee update…

I had a free day on Sunday so I ran up to the mountains and started on the siding. I’m putting this SmartSide vertical groove on 2 walls and horizontal redwood 1×6 on the front window wall and the back side. Only got this one wall done before I had to leave but I did purchase the panels, paint and stains so the rest can all go up on Friday/Saturday.

The Smartside will be painted a rust/terracotta color and the redwood will be stained a deep espresso brown. I do need to get this all done this coming weekend, it’s getting down to the low 30’s at night now and snow may show up soon (brrrrrr)…

more to come in a few days…

  1. It’s looking good! The color scheme sounds right on too… but you are a design pro 🙂
