messy progress

i didn't get as much done as i would have liked this weekend, but i've made satisfactory progress nonetheless. i was hoping to get the door installed today but that may fall through so i may have to find another one. i finished everything i said i would except for the siding on the front(need to put the door in first), and i'm missing a little piece of roofing felt on the peak because i wasn't sure how to to fold/cut it there so i'll get that done sometime this week. its getting messy out there so i think i'll do some cleaning before i head off to teach tomorrow. you can see that much of the fascia board is pretty dirty, using scavenged building materials is a lot like using secondhand kiln bricks, it may be free but there's going to be some elbow grease going into cleaning that before it can be painted( at least its pre-primed!)

so long for now!

Pretty impressive-you've obviously done this before. I can't imagine a better skill to have than to be able to build a house.
