South Side Restoration
The South side of the house was the simplest side to restore, yet the most difficult to access. The scaffolding just barely fits between the house and my fence and could not be moved once installed. So I'd have to dissemble it and reassemble it if I needed to move over. It did not fit at all in the area forward of the chimney, so that all had to be done on a ladder. Aside from that, very straight forward. There was a bunch of coax cable going to various bedrooms, I yanked all that out. I hate seeing exposed wiring on the outside of the house. And there was actually a pvc pipe going all the way from the basement up to the attic, with wiring within, as their way of running wiring to the attic. That had to go. Then it was the standard procedure. Strip the paint, replace the window sill edges and drip caps, repair clapboard, sand, wash, prime, caulk.
