Stroll Down Memory Lane- Siding

It’s time to take another stroll down memory lane and check out where we were on our house building process 3 years ago…

3 Years Ago This Week: Our house got clothes (or siding if you prefer technical building material terms…)…or least it’s backside did!



We chose Timbercrest’s vinyl siding in Pacific Blue.  Why blue?  Every other house in our neighborhood is beige or white.  Our last house was beige.  We wanted something different.  “Different” is hard in siding.  We didn’t want crazy.  Just different.  We were sold once we spotted this color at Menards.

We called in reinforcements in the form of Nate’s parents, my parents and my brother.  We would still be siding now if it wasn’t for their help!  They are awesome.  Seriously.  It was hott.  Not hot. H-O-T-T hot.







We did give them water…because we’re nice…my brother hated coming to visit me because I’d always put him to work.  He really hated me after this week-end…









This is how we ended the week-end…



Siding a house is a lot of work but it’s really not as complicated as one may think.  I even did some of the cutting and nailing.  So if I can do it, anyone can do it.  We did hire our builder to side the third story.  Nate’s mom and I weren’t so excited about Nate and his dad climbing all of the way up there without the proper equipment.  Of course, we know that they could have done it…

There you have it…the day our house got clothes!

Have you sided a house?  What are your thoughts on siding color?
