So what’s the word on this chilly, windy day, David?
Yesterday Joe and I pulled off the vertical beveled tongue and groove siding. Then we pulled off the ledger board that held up the deck…
Behind was evidence of the old deck system that was replaced in the early ’80s. The house wasn’t very well sealed, which explains the dark spots on the wood there — that’s the beginnings of rot. Plus, the tar paper was not continuous and the detail around the big window was odd….
We pulled the window out…
… and then installed the new window opening on the outside of the old sheathing.
Next up? Insulating. Then the same procedure on the BIG windows and the slider in the living room. Oy vey.
