Days 11 – 12 the South siding went great, we were really productive and praised at the results. Now the West side did not go so well. Yes, it started well and dandy with Luke, Dusty and myself. We were able to plan how we wanted it to work and ended up making a cool detail we call the zipper on the NW side of the building.
As we continued up the wall we ran into a problem. The crew got larger and new ideas were applied then misapplied then applied. In other words we needed to slow down and figure out the next plan of attack instead of making it up as we go.
In other news my tool belt sort of exploded. As it turns out the placement of the crowbar slowly tore away at the securing straps. Lucky for me I have been doing a lot of siding and finish work were all we really need is a tape measure, pencil, speed square (optional) and a finish nail gun.
When everything was said and done the West wall looked great and I am glad people do not have to see the small amounts of frustration that went into it.
Goal: Try and keep the same crew through the duration of a job
