Between three snowstorms (two blizzards,) Three illnesses (including Type A Influenza,) and Stephen working at his job on weekends, not much has been done. The work completed could've been done in a productive weekend, so I'll compress it. We put up siding on the entire back of the house and most of the front. To reach over the garage hoods will require the boom lift. We bought a scissor-type tool to cut the cement board, and it's AWESOME.
