The good weather of the past week allowed the crew to make quick progress in putting up the siding. We are using cement board because it is available locally, lasts for fifty years, and is made from wood pulp, cement, and water. It resists insects and requires little to no maintenance. It is pre-primed a beige color. Stand by for the sage green color we plan to paint the exterior.
For the trim, we're using MiraTech, a silica-free machine-made material that resists water and takes paint beautifully.
