Over the past two weeks, metal siding has gone up, drywall has been hung, and stairs have been added to the porches.
We decided to run the corrugated metal horizontally in order to create more texture on the facade through shadow. The challenge of this was fitting each long piece between window and corner flashing. This typically is not an issue because vertical pieces only have to fit in one j-channel at the top, while sitting on top of a drip edge at the bottom. Wide j-channels on windows and corners allowed us to slide and push each piece into place.
Shane Price has been installing drywall the past few weeks. We are excited to see how each space we have created actually feels. We will soon be able to put our focus on interior finishes.
We now have stairs on both porches, which makes moving around the porches much easier. We are now in the process of designing the handrails and installing porch finishes.
