Barn Renovation--Stage Eight--Siding and Windows

After the roof trusses were set, we nailed plywood to the roof and sides of the new addition. This work is not for the faint of heart, or those with a fear of heights. 

Love that nail gun.

After the plywood was on, it was time to put the steel siding up. My mother in law started the holes, to make the job easier when the siding was vertical.

Again, not for the faint of heart.

Sam, the intrepid cat, amused us by climbing ladders.

Here is the start of the cupola vent. There will be three attic vents. This one is the coolest.

Before the siding went on the ends of the barn, four windows needed to be wrestled in place and secured.

Again, tricky work at the top of a ladder.

It's almost weather-proof now, and the progress will be less dramatic from here on out. If you'd like to see the other stages of the barn renovation project, click here.
