Some Cabin Siding Done

Just got back from a short trip to the cabin. Managed to get the t1-11 siding up all the way around. The 3 gables will have a belly band trim strip then have cedar shingles above that.  I’ve been finding them free on craigslist in various condition. Not really sure how the used shingles will look but the price is right. I do know the shingles will look way better than doing t1-11 all the way up.

Brent had a Milwaukee cordless circular saw and it actually works! We used it to do all our work and charged the batteries with our inverter/solar panel so we never had to start up the generator. I have a Ryobi 18v circular saw and it doesn’t cut worth a damn. It would drain the battery before it cut a 2×4.

Thanks to Brent for helping me out and saving my back! We were only there for 24 hours but we managed to get all the siding done and went on a dirt bike ride past this washed out road on DNR land that I’ve never been past. Know I know the quad can make it around the washout we’ll be able to connect to many many more miles of road and trails that haven’t bee accessed for years, at least from this side.

The “J” is for Joseph. Lots of funny cuts like this since we have so many windows.
