hi i am a new home owner of a older home and i am to the point in my life where i can start to make improvements on the outside of my home my question is, what do i tackle first?
i need the following on my home. a new attached garage, windows, siding, shingles and better insulation in the exterior walls. the siding i have is old painted cedar shakes that sit on this thick fiberboard, i do not want these shakes any more. if i do the siding then id like to insulate from the outside, take everything down, insulate, plywood and housewrap.
but i worry about the windows at that point. id like to have new full framed windows..if i did this siding first would the windows be sealed correctly? the siding can come off eventually so could it be done later?
the attached garage..if it was built then i want the singles and siding to match so would it have to be all done together?
basically would everything have to happen all at the same time or can i pick and choose a certain order, i dont have enough money to do everything. i do have enough to do 1 or 2 things each season.
