Hanging Siding

Houses in the Musicians Village are set about 6 feet off the ground. Each has three bedrooms, one bath, and a small kitchen, dining and eating area. The master bedroom will just fit one queen-sized bed with no room for a dresser. There are several designs owners can choose from. The house we work on is a Dutch Hip. Others have smaller gables or none at all. The designs alternate to create visual variation.

Siding is by far the easiest activity we are assigned. Measure, cut, use the level, pound in three nails. The overlapping piece hides any mistakes with the hammer.
