Garage - Siding Up

After a week of work the garage is now dried in and the siding is up.
The siding is different colors because we mixed old and new boards. The whole thing needs to be painted but we now have nine inches of snow on the ground and it's still falling. Who knows when the weather will be good enough for painting.
We had originally planned to run the new garage electrical and call it good until fall but our project list is constantly evolving and we have decided that finishing the garage is more important that working on our laundry room. This is what I would like to accomplish in the next six weeks or so:
  • Run new electrical. At the moment we have one outlet and no lights.
  • Replace overhead door, man door and window.
  • Insulate
  • Sheetrock. We're going for a fully finished garage so I'll be taping and painting as well.
  • Finish exterior. Gutters, paint and lay stone veneer on front of garage.

Progress will depend on the weather and Luke having time off to help me hang sheetrock. It's going to be a lot of work but well worth the effort when we can work in a clean, brightly-lit garage.
