Exterior Progress

While I was touching up the disco and pee rooms this weekend Luke was working on the front of the house.  We replaced the living room window last week, but hadn't put any trim around it. 
Luke removed the railing from the porch, stripped the siding under the window and started cutting back the siding around the windows to make room for wider trim.  He also cut the siding back at the corners so we could install vertical trim.
 
All the old brickmold around the windows has been replaced 5/4" miretec.  The exposed buffalo board under the living room window will eventually be replaced with stone veneer.
Atlas was not as excited about the project as I was.
We also replaced the boarded-up bedroom window.  It only took a year to get around to it.
We still have one window to replace and trim out, then I can start prepping the siding for paint.  I would like to have it done by the end of the month, but there's still a lot to do.
